PROFFITT, Ollie Lee,
87, of Richmond, went home to Jesus November 11, 2017. He was preceded in death by his parents, Edward and Laura Proffitt; seven sisters and 10 brothers. He is survived by his wife of 66 years, Catherine Frayser Proffitt; four children, Linda Mason (Phillip), Ronald Proffitt (Donna), Susan Liptak (Terry), Robin Sadak (Dean); nine grandchildren and three greatgrandchildren. His twin brother died the day of their birth and was the first loss of his siblings, with Ollie being the last to join his family in a heavenly reunion. He loved his Lord Jesus, family and friends. Ollie enjoyed life, building a cabin in Cumberland for hunting, fishing and birdwatching in his later years. Diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in 2015, he kept his optimistic personality and sense of humor. The family will receive friends Wednesday from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Bennett & Barden Funeral Home, 3215 Anderson Hwy. (Rt. 60), Powhatan. A memorial service will be held Thursday at 3 p.m. in the Skipwith United Methodist Church, 2211 Skipwith Rd., Richmond. Interment private.
