J.C. (Jessie Carl) Testerman, age 85, passed away Sunday, August 21, 2022 at Valley Health Care Center, Chilhowie, Va.

 

J.C. loved his country, and was proud of his service in the U.S. Army. He loved his family dearly. J.C. loved to hunt deer and look for them, he enjoyed fishing and as a true man’s man…loved wrestling, making brown beans and cornbread like nobody’s business. Finishing furniture for a living and passion was what J.C. did. First with Appalachian Manufacturing at the old River Plant, American Furniture, and retiring with more than 25 years with Lilly Industrial Coatings. J.C. was a good one – his smile and sense of humor will be missed.

 

He was preceded in death by his son, Ralph Testerman; father, Gaither Testerman; mother, Louise Heffinger Barker; sisters, Caroline Rhoten and Joyce Hamm; special nephew, Dale Roberts.

 

J.C. is survived by his wife of 40 years, Judy Testerman; son, Kevin Testerman and wife, Tina all of Marion, Va.; half-sisters, Sue Barker of Marion, Va., Glenna Turley of Glade Spring, Va., Cathy Hagy of Marion, Va.; half-brothers, Jack Barker and Dennis Barker, both of Marion, Va.; several nieces, nephews, great and great-great nieces and nephews; and special four legged furry friend, Bud.

 

The family will receive friends Wednesday, August 24, 2022 from 6 until 8 p.m. at Seaver-Brown Chapel. Funeral services will be held Thursday, August 25, 2022 at 11 a.m. at Seaver-Brown Chapel with Pastor Herman Cress, Pastor Emmit Wilson and Pastor John Graham officiating.
