Holmes Elton “Buzzy” Cummings, 81, of Bogue Chitto went to be with his Lord on April 1, 2020 in Grand Prairie, TX. He was born on July 28, 1938 to the late Raiford Homer Cummings and Althea Sadler Cummings.

He enjoyed sports, as a student at Brookhaven High School, Mr. Cummings played basketball. His greatest thrill was to spread the love of Jesus, to teach others of God’s love and mercy through Bible Studies. He will be missed by all that loved him, but his legacy will live on.

Preceding him in death were his parents; wife, Marietta Boone Cummings; infant daughter, Tina Cummings; and sister, Ollie Boone.
