In Loving memory, we pause to give honor to M' Leon "Papa" Belcher with love and affection. 

*He was born August 14, 1933 to the late Mr. & Mrs. Harold (Ellen) Belcher. He was affectionately called "Papa" by his grandkids. At an early age, he accepted Christ as his personal savior and became an active member of Sims Chapel Baptist Church, where he served on the Usher Board until his health declined. "Leon" was known throughout the community for his cooking down through the years. Prior to his retirement, he worked for Hanover Wire in Covington, Georgia.

*On March 7th, 1952 he was united in Holy Matrimony to the late Mother Alice Ruth Belcher. To this union was born a devoted son, Mr. Harvey (Sonny) Belcher and a loving daughter, Mrs. Carolyn Davis.

*On Saturday, June 25, 2016, Leon departed this earthly life. He was preceded in death by six siblings; Mrs. Barbara Sawyer, Mrs. Darlene Jordan, Mr. Billy Charles Belcher, Mr. Willie James Belcher, Mrs. Mary Goode and Mrs. Annette Hardeman.

*His beautiful life will forever be cherished by a son; Mr.  & Mrs. Harvey (Alice) Belcher, a daughter, Mr. & Mrs. Ronnie (Carolyn) Davis, four grandchildren; Mr. Idris Davis, Mr. & Mrs. Quincy (Lea) Belcher, Ms. Tiffany Davis and Mr. Jordan Davis, one great granddaughter, Little Kristen (Baby) Johnson, two sisters, Ms. Catherine White and Ms. Alfreda Belcher, devoted brother, Mr. Rufus Belcher, one sister-in-law, Ms. Dianna Belcher, a devoted friend, Ms. Helen Hill and a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
