Charlie McCoy "Coy" Deskins, age 95 of Richlands, Virginia, passed away Thursday, September 09, 2010 at a Richlands, Virginia hospital. Born August 29, 1915 at Buchanan County, Virginia he was the son of the late Jacob and Elizabeth Matney Deskins. He was a United States Army Veteran of World War II. He was a member of the American Legion. He was a lifelong member of the Richlands Tabernacle and former Sunday school teacher. He was a gifted carpenter and special uncle to many nieces and nephews.

Proverbs 22:1 "A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favor rather than silver and gold." This was a special verse to "Coy" and how he lived his life.

He is survived by three brothers, George Estle Deskins of Florida, Andrew Parson Deskins of Caledonia, OH and Ireland Vernon Deskins of Richmond, VA; many nieces and nephews also survive.

Funeral services in celebration of his life will be conducted at 2:00 P.M. Sunday, September 12, 2010 at the Richlands Tabernacle at Richlands, Virginia with Rev. Ralph Horton, Rev. Ancil Childress and Rev. Randy Webb officiating. Entombment will follow in the Greenhills Memory Gardens Mausoleum at Claypool Hill, Virginia. Family and friends will serve as pallbearers. Military graveside rites will be conducted by Casey-Shortt VFW Post 9640.

The family will receive friends from 6 to 9 P.M. Saturday at Singleton Funeral Service at Cedar Bluff, Virginia.
