Family…that was the most important thing to Lavon Sistrunk. He enjoyed puzzles, deer hunting, spending time with his grand babies and great grand babies and working in his garden. Most of all he enjoyed turkey hunting. He was the fourth of nine children growing up in rural Marion County. In 1972 he met and married the love of his life, Beverly Bullock. Shortly after marriage, their family started. He worked in the oil field for fifty plus years. For the last 30 plus years he worked with Challenger Deepwell Services. Even after retirement, Lavon’s conversations were oil field related. Over the years he gained many cherished friends, who became like family. He always instilled in his children hard work, loving deeply, and keeping family together. He will be greatly missed.

He was preceded in death by his Parents, James & Martha Sistrunk; and one Brother, Paul Sistrunk.
