A funeral service will be held at 11 a.m. on Friday, March 12, at the Robert M. King Funeral Home, 23 Church St., Granville, with the Pastor Rob Smith of the Fair Haven Baptist Church officiating. Friends may call on Thursday, March 11, from 6 to 9 p.m. at the funeral home.  Burial will be in Elmwood Cemetery in Middle Granville in the spring.
