Deontray Jedidiah McElroy

Deontray Jedidiah McElroy, age 11 of Lebanon, entered into the arms of his loving Savior Jesus Christ on Thursday, July 5, 2018, surrounded by his family. His earthly struggle ended and he has now been made wonderfully whole.

Deontray was a member of Rocky Valley Baptist Church where he enjoyed activities with his Sunday school class and other church friends. Deontray was always smiling. His infectious smile could brighten anyone’s day and light up any room. He was cherished dearly by his classmates and teachers and was always found to be the center of attention in any situation.  You couldn’t help but love him.

He leaves behind his loving parents, Ray and Crickett McElroy; siblings, Rhianna, Jennifer, Trevor, Boone, Madlyn, Mason, and Tate McElroy; paternal-grandparents, Rev. Don and Ann McElroy; maternal-grandparents, Ralph and Shawn Smith, and Helen Smith of Georgia; as well as a host of aunts, uncles, cousins, and other loving family and friends.

Funeral services will be 3:00 P.M. Sunday, July 8, 2018, at Rocky Valley Baptist Church, 5745 Old Murfreesboro Rd. East, Lebanon. Bro. Jason Mull and Bro. Don McElroy will officiate.

A private family burial will follow in the Cedar Grove Cemetery. Visitation will be Saturday July 7, 2018 4-7 PM at Rocky Valley Baptist Church and Sunday after 2PM at Rocky Valley Baptist Church.
