Earl G. Hissom

Birth: Dec. 20, 1920 Charleston Kanawha County West Virginia, USA.   Death: Jun. 8, 2005 Fairlea Greenbrier County West Virginia, USA

Rev. Hissom was the son of Rev. Earl G. Hissom Sr. and Tressa Lena DODD. The Rev. Hissom is survived by his three children, Earl G. Hissom III, Th.D., of Charleston, Judith Hall of Kentucky and Sharon Reed of Colliers, W.Va.; eight grandchildren, Eric and Phil Hissom of Florida, Yvonne Donlon of Charleston, Jeff LaChance of Delaware, Brad LaChance and Kye Fadeley of Texas, Kristy LaChance of North Carolina and Joya Fadeley of California; and four great-grandchildren.

He was preceded in death by his wife, Julia; parents, Earl and Tressa Hissom; brother, Charles and George; and sisters, Mary Graham, Elizabeth Cash, Betty Atkins and Carol Ross. Rev. Earl Jr. was a minister, evangelist and religious leader in West Virginia. He was converted and called to preach at age 17 in a tent meeting being conducted by his father, Earl G. Hissom Sr., located at the corner of Madison and Randolph Streets, the current location of Sav-A-Lot and Agsten Manor. Before joining the Church of the Nazarene in 1945, the Rev. Hissom sold Bibles, held tent meetings, conducted revivals and preached whenever and wherever he could. He then pastored at Uneeda and Seth. When the Seth church was organized into a Nazarene Church by District Superintendent Dr. Oney, he lost his pastorate. Dr. Oney said, "That's okay, son. Don't be upset. The Church of the Nazarene has lots of places for you to preach." And they kept him busy the next 25 years, pasturing in Seth, New Martinsville, Glasgow, Weirton, Southeast Nazarene and Capitol View Nazarene in Charleston. He also served as an evangelist. During the years that he pastored for the Church of the Nazarene, the Rev. Hissom was able to report gains in all departments with all budgets paid. At every pastorate, he made notable capital improvements to church properties. He served on various boards and committees of the West Virginia District of the Church of the Nazarene. The Rev. Hissom was instrumental in planting several Holiness churches, including Burnsville, Ohio, Paris, Pa., Handley, Hooverson Heights, Colliers Way, Capitol View (now known as South Hills Church of the Nazarene) and the Church of Emmanuel in Charleston, and Gap Mills. The Rev. Hissom served as a mentor and encourager for many young, aspiring ministers, such as John Hancock, Harold Runyon, Carl Gray, James Withrow, Paul Nester, Tony Costello and many others. During a recent telephone call, Mrs. John Hancock expressed their deep appreciation for the tremendous amount of time the Rev. Hissom spent with them in their early Christian lives. After his retirement from the Nazarene Church, the Rev. Hissom operated a Bible selling business, pastored the Hissom Holiness Tabernacle and the Church of Emmanuel, Charleston, and Harry Peyton Tabernacle, Hinton. He continued to hold revivals across the state of West Virginia, preach whenever and wherever he was called and frequently conducted radio broadcasts. He also worked as a fundraiser throughout the state for fire and police departments, emergency services and health clinics through RMJ Studios. The Rev. Hissom was a renowned Bible scholar. His favorite pastime was studying the Bible, preparing sermons and discussing the scriptures. His hobbies were walking, hunting and watching old westerns on TV.

Elmer was born September 7, 1923 to Roper Lee and Ersa Margaret (Brown) Satterfield in Palisade, Colorado.  He was the youngest of ten children. He never had a chance to graduate from school so farming was the dearest thing to him besides family. He loved working with mother earth and could always be found outside till dark.           In 1942, Elmer came to Washington to visit his brother and met his future wife, Thelma I. Kinkade, of Mabton. He went into the Navy in 1943 and served in World War II. On June 19, 1945, he received military leave and married Thelma in Selah. Later that year he received an honorable discharge. In 1946, the first of his two children was born, David E., and Karen L. They were his pride and joy.

         Elmer and Thelma settled in Mabton and farmed on Satus for several years. He loved raising mint, hay, corn, potatoes, sugar beets, and cattle.  Elmer was known for his beautiful, straight rows, and large and weed-less gardens that grew the best tasting vegetables around. In 1971, Elmer went to work for the Mabton School District as maintenance man. He later went to work for the Grandview School District and retired in 1988 as Maintenance Supervisor.

           After retirement, Elmer and Thelma had time to travel. They spent most of their time traveling to Washington State Fiddlers Contests and to the best-known fishing holes. Elmer learned how to play guitar at a young age and enjoyed playing with friends till the wee hours of the morning.  He won many awards and trophies for best accompanist at various local contests and at the National level.

           After Elmer was diagnosed with cancer, he wasn't able to go fishing and camping as much so he spent a lot of his time chewing the fat with various people at the Outpost while having coffee. Elmer will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved him.           Elmer is survived by his loving wife of 60 years, Thelma; two dear children, David Satterfield and wife Margaret of Richland and Karen Satterfield of Sunnyside; three special granddaughters, Rene' Martinez and husband Ramon of Palmer, Alaska, Monica Stanton and husband, Paul of Grandview, and Nanci Shrauner and fiance' Mike Rushman of Pasco; four darling great-grandchildren; his faithful companion, Mandi, his dog; and several nieces and nephews. His parents, four brothers, and five sisters, precede him in death.
