Eli Chavis Obituary

Mr. Eli Chavis, 98, born October 25, 1925, went to his heavenly home on July 6, 2024. Eli Chavis was one of the last remaining WW2 Veterans. He was a sharpshooter and a cook in the US Army, but I believe he would say more importantly he was a soldier in God’s Army, who loved his family with every fiber of his being. God blessed POP/POPPY with a silky-smooth voice and a passion for spreading the gospel of Christ to everyone in his life. I’m sure Christ echoed in his ear, “Farewell my good and faithful servant, you have fought the fight, you have run the race now it is time for you to rest in eternal peace with your new body in your new home”. You will be missed here on earth, but heaven is now rejoicing because another warrior of the cross has made it home. 

     Eli is preceded in death by his beloved wife and mother of his children, Vera Lee Chavis, wife, Aileen Holmes Chavis, his son, Ronnie Chavis, father, Eli Chavis Sr., mother, Lonnie Chavis, his siblings, Artie Lee Chavis, Isabelle Bell, Gaynell Jacobs, Pittmon Chavis, Myrtle Maynor, Cleveland Chavis, and great grandson, Tyler Chavis. 

      Mr. Chavis is survived by his two sons, Verlon Ray Chavis (Jean) of Elkridge MD and Michael Dwayne Chavis (Kimberly) of York PA; a daughter, Glenda Joyce Chavis-Love, of Catonsville MD; grandchildren, Douglas Ray Chavis (Kristen), Melanie Joy Kelly-Love (Todd) Kelly Taylor Miller (Michael), April Love Williams- Love (Chase), Derek Michael Chavis (Patrick), and Kelsea Elizabeth Chavis-Howard (Willie); great-grandchildren, Brianna Chavis-Forman (Joe), Austin Taylor, Canaan Eli Williams, and Carsyn Williams; one great-great-grandchild, Dexson McLendon; and a host of family and friends.
