  Born January 14, 1947 in Pontotoc, he was the son of the late Lester and Elizabeth Penatton Hellums. Mr. Hellums was a graduate of Pontotoc High School and later moved to Memphis where he was employed as a Transportation Supervisor for Levi Strauss Corporation before his retirement. He and his wife moved to the Walnut Community ten years ago where they enjoyed a small community closeness and attended Walnut Baptist Church.
  Mr. Hellums was a family oriented person who loved the Lord, his grandchildren, his friends and his pets, "Kit-Kat", "Freckles" and "Lil Bit". He will be remembered by those who knew him best as a person who enjoyed humor, the beach and outdoor activities that included deer hunting and fishing.
  Survivors include his wife, his children, Christi Clark (Tony) of New Albany and David Hellums of Southaven, his sisters, Shirley Rorie (Lamar) of Hernando and Barbara Hellums of Memphis, and five grandchildren, Blake Gray, Christian Hellums, Anthony, Banks and Jordan Ghosheh.
