Uncle Dokey was one of my mother’s brothers. I loved him dearly and will remember him until death. He was an amazing, self proficient man...there was only one other that I have known which was his dad, my grandfather, William Tinley Jackson. I love you!

A Sad day for me! I was in the Mill Side of Graphic Packaging for about 30 years and he was a special person and leader along with his buddy “Murph” and helped the West Monroe Mill become a leader in the Industry of Packaging! He also came to Macon to help with the startup of the Coated Board ! He’ll never be forgotten!
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Yes, I recall many times I visited with my Cousin Dokey when I was home and spent many hours with him having coffee and telling stories of the past and growing up in Rocky Branch. Some of my most cherished memories are when his Dad, Uncle Tin held family BBQ;s and all the Chapman families would gather and have a great time visiting. I recall Dokey and Huck trying to out do each other with the wildest stories. Those were the days,. Rest in peace Cousin, James Harvey Chapman, son of Truman Willis "PeeWee" Chapman.
