Silas Deese

June 13, 1931 ~ January 21, 2019 (age 87)

Mr. Silas "Pop" Deese, age 87, of Waxhaw, NC, passed away on January 21, 2019, surrounded by his loving family.

Visitation will be held on Thursday, January 24, from 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM at Davis Funeral Service, 1003 East Franklin Street, Monroe, NC, 28112.

Silas, lovingly known as "Pop" by his family, lived a life full of love. His family will miss hearing him play bluegrass music, listening to his colorful stories and his great grandkids will miss visiting him and being showered with not only his love but quarters he had won at bingo. 

Pop loved his family more than anything in the world, and they continue to love him just as much. His bright smile and loving personality will forever be missed. He is survived by his daughters; Judy Medlin (Steve Medlin), and Patricia Morgan (Nelson Morgan), as well as his four loving grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren. 

He was preceded in death by his wife Jo Ann Deese and daughter Vickie "BB" Deese. 

Although flowers are appreciated, the family requests that memorials in Pop's honor be made to Union County Hospice, 700 W. Roosevelt Blvd, 28110.
