In November the Voyles family said goodbye to our patriarch, my Dad, Euclid Voyles. He fell, broke his hip, and passed away after several days of hospice care. We were close by throughout the ordeal, followed by days of family coming in and the subsquent funeral arrangements. That is why we are behind.Euclid Voyles was the best man at my wedding--and the best man throughout my life.
There's a photo here of a very young Mom and Dad with me on his shoulders. He carried me on his shoulders throughout his life in one way or another.He was a 32nd Degree Mason, active in his church, a veteran of the South Pacific in WWII with much of his time spent on CV11-USS Intrepid, which he revisited in 2006 in New York harbor. His occupation was a Journeyman Pipefitter as a member of UA Local 43 in Chattanooga. He was a volunteer fireman, and an EMT which he undertook after his pipefitter retirement. He also ran a country grocery, owned rental property on which he did all theĀ maintenance, and loved his wife and family--and we all knew of that love very well.He was a man of mirth and humor, held a curiosity about everything and sometimes a mischievous personality. If he was around it would not be a boring day. He accompanied me to many knife shows, and assisted us in managing the Blade Show for 13 years.
His purchase of a few knives sparked my interest in the subject.During all this ordeal I kept hearing in my mind the Randy Newman song, "Texas Girl at the Father of her Funeral" by Linda Ronstadt. The lines that stuck out were, "Sing a sad song, about a Good Man, a sad song for me, a sad song about a sailor, a thousand miles from the sea." This Good Man leaves behind two children, five grandchildren, three great-grandchildren and an empty spot in our lives.
My daughter had a statement under a photo she posted on facebook of her jitterbugging with my Dad at her wedding. "Today my Papa is dancing with my Grandmother in Heaven." Dance on Dad, and Anchors Aweigh Petty Officer Voyles. Euclid R. Voyles 1925-2014.
