Arcell Causey Sr., a son given by the Lord to Elder Edgar Doll and Luella Causey, was born in Tylertown, Miss., on Dec. 10, 1929, and went home to be with the Lord from the St. Clara Manor Nursing Facility in Baton Rouge, the morning of Tuesday, March 15, 2022.

Deacon Causey displayed a heightened spirit of giving, and love of service, which today so richly bless our memories. He was a model provider for his family as he was seen helping and providing for his children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, church family, and others. He also showed profound respect and love for his pastors, Superintendents Leonard Hill and Leslie Fields.

He leaves to cherish his precious memories: four daughters, Mrs. Bettye (Deacon Ennick) Jordan of Woodville, Wash., Evangelist Missionary Donna (Elder Erskine) Magee of Geismar, Supervisor Diane (Deacon Lloyd) Van Dyke of Fayetteville, Ga., and Mrs. Lillie (Deacon Roy) Stueckrath of Little Elm, Texas; and three sons, Mr. Arcell Causey Jr. of Franklinton, Mr. Jerry Causey of Franklinton, and Mr. Tyrone (Shondell) Causey of New Orleans; three sisters, Mrs. Bernice Tate of Loganville, Ga., Mother Eunice Knight of Palmdale, Calif., and First Lady Josephine (Bishop Hillrie) Murphy of Gardena, Calif.; two sisters-in-law, Ms. Bobbie Brown and Evangelist Missionary Linda Wilson; 14 grandchildren; 19 great-grandchildren; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

Preceding him in death were his wife, Mother Gladys Causey; his father and mother, Elder Edgar Doll and Sister Luella Causey; and five brothers, Mr. Edgar Causey Jr., Mr. Pernell Causey, Mr. Ned Causey, Elder Harlon Causey and Mr. Myles Causey.

Visitation hours will be Friday, March 25, from 10 a.m. until 11 a.m., followed by the funeral service at 11 a.m. at Lear Hill C.O.G.I.C.
