TUPELO - Marion Hansell "John" Furr died on Jan. 28, 2007, at Sanctuary Hospice House in Tupelo. Mr. Furr was born Dec. 22, 1923, in Aberdeen to Dr. Esta Furr and Lottie Winnafred Hansell. He married Pearl Grey Canterbury in Lovely Lane Methodist Church in Baltimore, Md., on April 13, 1946. He was a bit of a nomad, having moved 33 times in his lifetime; however, as he once wrote, "home has always been where mother was. She was and is the glue that held it all together." Prior to his recent illness, he and his wife lived in a cottage at Traceway Methodist Retirement Community in Tupelo. To attend Sunflower Junior College (now Mississippi Delta Community College) after high school in 1941, he sold a cow, received work and band scholarships, milked cows, worked on a farm, rang the class change bell, and was the college postmaster. When he graduated in December 1943 with an A.A. degree in pre-med and music, the school owed him $120. He entered the University of Mississippi in January 1943 but withdrew in March to fulfill active duty orders from the Army. He then began a 23-year military career, first as an enlisted soldier in the Army and later as an officer in the Air Force. As an enlisted soldier, he was a rifleman, anti-tank gunner (30 and 60 mm), medical corpsman, orthopedic specialist, clinical laboratory technician, payroll clerk, pharmacist, personnel clerk and clinical laboratory instructor. Receiving a direct commission during the Korean War as a clinical laboratory officer, he became a hospital administrator, retiring in 1966 as a major. From 1966 to 1969, he was Director of Administration and Finance for Middle Eastern operations of Commonwealth Services International Inc., at Dhahran International Airport, Al Khobar, Saudi Arabia. He returned to the University of Mississippi in 1970, earning a Bachelor of Arts in Education in May 1971, a MeD in June 1972, and, as he liked to call it, an ABD (all but dissertation) in Educational Administration in May 1974. From 1977 to 1989, he was a math teacher at Tupelo High School. He then retired "to spend full-time caring for and supporting the star and light of my life and mother of our children." Active in church and community, he helped organize and launch the Pontotoc County Habitat for Humanity and was a tutor for Central Alabama Laubach Literacy Council in Montgomery. A memorial service will be at 11 a.m. Thursday at Wesley United Methodist Church. W.E. Pegues Funeral Directors is in charge of the arrangements. He was preceded in death by his parents and two brothers, William Frazier Furr, who was killed in action in Germany in World War II, and Dr. Richard Theron Furr of Ocean Springs, who died Oct. 19, 2006. He is survived by his wife, Pearl, and four children, Mary Louise Furr and her husband, Felix Charles DiPalma Jr., of Texas, William Frazier Furr and his wife, Martha, of Montgomery, Ala., Joseph Patrick Furr and his wife, Dorothy, of Great Falls, Mont., and Elizabeth Anne "Libby" Furr of Oxford. He is also survived by his brother, the Reverend Esta Stanley Furr of Tupelo, seven grandchildren, two great-grandchildren, and eight nieces and nephews. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the American Forests Katrina ReLeaf Fund (http://www.americanforests.org or P.O. Box 2000, Washington DC 20013).

14 (Medical):Anthony Jefferson Moore/Harper was the son of Dutch Moore and Juanita Lusk Moore. He was born December 22, 1957, at Holmes County Community Hospital in Lexington, Mississippi. Dutch and Juanita divorced when Anthony was approximately three years old. Dutch wanted to be a father to Anthony but Juanita would not share him with Dutch or the Moore family. Dutch gave up after several years of never getting his son for a weekend. On December 11, 1963, when Anthony was six years old, Luther Harper adopted him. Luther was married to Juanita at that time. Dutch knew nothing of the adoption and did not sign the adoption papers. Anthony found out who his birth father was at a party when he was a teenager. He came to Lexington to see his dad and meet his stepmother and two half-brothers, Charles and Ronald.

Anthony's education was at Indianola Academy, Indianola, Mississippi. He was gifted in music and won a music scholarship. He received an associate of arts diploma from Mississippi Delta Community College in Moorhead, Mississippi. He also attended Itawamba Junior College in Fulton, Mississippi. There he received an associate of arts diploma in electronics and became a certified electrician.

On Thursday, March 28, 1996, an obituary of Anthony's death appeared in The Clarion Ledger newspaper. Dutch's brother, Melvin, was told of Anthony's death by one of his friends at the local coffee shop. Melvin called Dutch to inform him that Anthony had been killed in a truck wreck on Colorado 140 one mile south of Redmesa in La Plata County, Colorado. Anthony was in a company truck and had worked extremely long hours prior to his death. He was a longtime former resident of the Greenwood area and in 1990 had moved to Farmington, New Mexico.

After Anthony's death Dutch found out that there was a wife and three small children. They all live in Bloomfield, New Mexico. Dutch and Carolyn stayed in touch with Tammy for a period of time after Anthony's death. Tammy mentioned that when her mother died she might move closer to them. She is a certified electrician also. Before she met Anthony she already had one teenage son, Jacob Martin Shanafelt. Carolyn is not sure if Anthony and Tammy were legally married or if theirs was a common law marriage.
