Obituary for Reuben Doyle Netherland

Reuben Doyle Netherland Sr., 85, of Lexington, MS, went to be with his Lord and Savior on Friday, August 5, 2016.
Reuben spent most of his life as operator/owner of Crown (Chevron) Service Station and later as a rural mail carrier in Lexington, MS. He enjoyed tending to his cows, cutting and bailing hay, eating out with his friends, but most of all, spending time with his wife of 66 years and the family they built together.
Reuben spent many hours watching his kids and grandkids participate in sports, going to the 4-H barns, attending MSU baseball games, and his favorite--vacationing in Branson, MO!
Reuben has been faithful in his Christian walk, serving as an active deacon at First Baptist Church in Lexington and currently at Ebenezer Baptist Church.
Reuben is survived by his wife, Sylvia Netherland; son, Reuben (Donna) Netherland, Jr. of Bowling Green, KY; daughter, Kathy (Terry) Cox of Kosciusko, MS; son, Joey Netherland of Sallis, MS; and sister Eileen (James) Branch of Ridgeland, MS. He was the proud grandfather of eight grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren.
Visitation is at 10 a.m. Monday, August 8, at Ebenezer Baptist Church with the service following at 11:00 a.m. Arthur L. Branch (nephew), James L. Branch (nephew), Joey Netherland, Jr. (grandson), John Reuben Cox (grandson), Shane Chester (grandson), and Dr. Nick Netherland (grandson) will serve as pallbearers. Buster White, Paul White, Mike Hood, Landon Hood and Reid Sumrall will serve as honorary pallbearers.
Memorials can be sent to Ebenezer Baptist Church at 3529 Ebenezer Road, Lexington, MS 39095.
