Emmitt Spencer Byndon, Jr.

July 18, 1945 — November 24, 2020

Oklahoma City

Emmitt Spencer Byndon Jr. was born July 18, 1945 in Madison (Forrest City) Arkansas. He was the 5th of 8 children: Verner, Euzelia, Willie, Larry, Clara, Jimmie, and Donnell. Emmitt was the junior of the union between Annie Mae (Buntin) and Emmitt Byndon Sr.

A few years after graduating from Lincoln high school, 21 year old Emmitt enlisted in the US Army. He served for 2 years attaining the rank of sergeant. Emmitt received an honorable discharge after becoming wounded, earning a Purple Heart, Sharp Shooter Service Metal,  National Defense Service Metal, Vietnam Service Metal with 3 bronze service stars,  Republic of Vietnam Campaign Metal, and the Army Commendation Metal.

Emmitt was a hard worker over the years. He retired from 3 different jobs including Warwick,  Auto-craft (ATC Drivetrain), and Wal-Mart. However, Emmitt started his most important work on July 12th 2003 when he was baptized as one of Jehovahs’s Witnesses.

On December 28th, 2000 Emmitt married his loving wife Linda Giles. They loved working together in the early morning witnessing work. They also served together occasionally as auxiliary pioneers. Emmitt’s favorite form of the ministry was telephone witnessing. He loved telling people about the future hope found at Revelation 21:3,4, which in part tells of Jehovah God’s promise of a time when death will be no more. He loved to laugh and joke while watching his favorite TV shows with his great grand children. His latest love was the same as his first, cooking and taking care of his family.

Emmitt Byndon Jr fell asleep in death on Tuesday, November 24th at the Oklahoma VA hospital. He will be missed by all who knew him. We look forward to welcoming him and his wife back in the coming earthly paradise.

He leaves to cherish his memory, his son Lamont Byndon; His step children David Lonzo (Tracie), Latricia Flowers (Derrick), Lisa Garvin (Mark). His 4 grand children, Lashawna, Dustin, Rayven, and Gerard along with 15 great grandchildren. He also leaves his sisters in law Marlene Byndon and Edna Byndon along with a host of nieces, nephews, relatives, and friends.

“Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life…” John 5:28,29
