Vernon Gifford

Vernon Eugene Gifford, 75, of Dunlap, passed away on Monday, March 5, 2018.

He was a veteran in the United States Army and in the grocery business for many years. He started with Red Food stores and ended with Pruett’s Food Town. After retirement he moved to the farm in Dunlap, Tennessee where he lived in peace and quiet with his favorite dogs Chipper, Suzie, Rhea, his cats and cattle. Vernon was loved by many and always passed on his need to give to others as he did after he left this world through organ donation. His eyes will be used for someone who could not see and that’s exactly what he would have wanted.

He was preceded in death by his stepfather, Ralph Fisher, uncles, Leon Stubblefield, James Stubblefield and other aunts and uncles.

Survivors include his son, Jim Gifford, of Hixson; daughter, Adrianne McFalls, of Arizona; mother, Mamie Fisher, of Red Bank, brother, Lark Gifford, Jr., of Flat Rock, Al.; sister, Shirley Gifford, of Red Bank; stepsons, Mark Woodall, of Ringgold, John Woodall, of Harrison; stepdaughter, Virginia Woodall, of Trenton, Ga., and a special granddaughter, Lexie Woodall who loved him dearly.

Funeral services will be held on Saturday, March 10, at 1 p.m. at Hamilton Funeral Home with Pastor Odell Broadway officiating. Interment will follow at Levi cemetery.

Visitation will be held on Friday, March 9, from 4-7 p.m. and on Saturday, March 10, from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. at Hamilton Funeral Home.

Arrangements are by Hamilton Funeral Home & Cremation Services, 4506 Hixson Pike, Hixson, 423 531-3975.
