Rev. Floyd Eugene "Gene" Yelverton

Rev. Floyd Eugene “Gene” Yelverton, 79, of Ellaville passed away at his residence on October 4, 2023.  Graveside services will be held at Concord Methodist Church Cemetery in Ellaville on Friday, October 6, 2023 at 11:00 AM with Rev. Clint Yelverton officiating.  The family will greet friends at the cemetery beginning at 10:00 until service time. 

Rev. Yelverton was born September 5, 1944 in Randolph County, GA to Ernest Brown and Alice Jackson Yelverton.  He was a graduate of Shellman High School and went on to graduate Summa Cum Laude from Georgia Southwestern University and then his Masters of Divinity from Asbury Theological Seminary in Wilmore, KY.  Rev. Yelverton began his career in the Methodist ministry at Concord United Methodist Church in Americus, before serving at several other churches before his retirement.  He enjoyed hunting, fishing and woodworking and with a little help, was able to build his home and shop building.  If he had a motto, it would have been, “God, Family, Country and Missions.”  In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by a brother and sister-in-law, Charlie and Marie Yelverton.

Survivors include his wife of 61 years, Meriam Jones Yelverton of Ellaville; three sons, Shane Yelverton and his wife, Donna of Cuthbert, GA, Randy Yelverton of Ellaville, GA and Clint Yelverton and his wife, Cynthia of Newton, GA; nine grandchildren, Benjamin Yelverton (Amanda), Chesley Ekkel (Herman), Melissa Dupree (Kerry), Stephen Goodbread, Blake Yelverton (Cara), Brett Yelverton (Angela), Ashley Parker (Joseph), Bryant Yelverton (Brianna), and Elijah Yelverton; thirteen great-grandchildren, Alicia, Allison, Grace, Declan, Holton, Brooklyn, Mia, Shaley, Cypress, Isla, India, Gunner and Canyon; several nieces and nephews; and his beloved dog, Genie.
