He was born May 6, 1986, to Dora C. and Jonathan C. Purple.
He leaves behind a rich legacy of love and faith, and ministered to anyone who needed help, either by deed or words of wisdom. Two words that describe his character are “helpful” and “compassionate.” He is with Jesus now and is missed by those of us awaiting Christ’s return soon. Our mourning is mixed with hope, joy and love and the sure knowledge that we will be together soon.
In addition to his parents he is survived by his wife, Alana Owens Purple; two daughters: Elora Raphaella Purple, 4, and Azriel Virginia Purple, 2; and a large family who loved him very much.
A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. Friday, Dec. 7, 2012, at Living Word Church with Pastor Larry Cockerham officiating.
We invite you to send a message of condolence and view the Purple family guest book at www.grissomfh.net.
