Mr. Jerry Roscoe Lominick, 78, of Pomaria, passed away on Monday, November 30, 2020, after a courageous battle with cancer.

He was born on April 12, 1942, in Newberry County, the son of the late James R. and Margaret Shealy Lominick. Roscoe was a lifelong member of St. Philip's Lutheran Church. During his retirement years he was a member of Lizzie Chapel during the spring through the fall months in Maggie Valley, NC. He was employed by Joanna Mills, Greenwood Mills, was self-employed in the poultry industry for a number of years and retired from Green Acres Construction. Roscoe served in the S.C. National Guard having been stationed in Ft. Polk, Louisiana. He was a volunteer fireman with the St. Philip's Fire Department, a member of the Woodman of the World and a member of the Scott Creek Hunting Club. He was also a member of the Prosperity Bass Pro Master Club where he won numerous trophies. Roscoe was a member of the Lower Newberry Farmers and was a member of the Newberry Electric Cooperative where served on the nominating committee for a number of years.

Roscoe always had such a thankfulness for life and a joyful spirit when you talked to him. He was grateful for each day. His strength in life came from a trust in God where he cast all of his fears. He always had faith when facing a difficult decision regardless of the situation of health or otherwise.

Roscoe loved and cherished his life and enjoyed it to the fullest. He was very talented and possessed lots of wisdom. He was an avid outdoorsman who had a love for God's outdoor world. His passion, when he wasn't spending time with his family was fishing, hunting, and gardening. He loved sharing his vegetables and fruits.

Roscoe was a talented welder and a talented carpenter who carved many beautiful bowls and other beautiful and unique items. He was a proficient heavy equipment operator and could be described as a “Jack of all Trades”as he always was willing to help anyone in need of assistance.

He enjoyed dancing and playing cards where he was able to fellowship with family and friends. He had a big heart and was such a blessing to all. He will be missed dearly.

Left to cherish his memory are his loving wife, Anne Shannon Lominick, of 52 years; his daughter, Susan (Dan) Dry of Maggie Valley, NC; a sister, Margaret Dare Wicker of Pomaria; brothers, Jimmy (Linda) Lominick of Whitmire and Dean (Margaret) Lominick of Pomaria; his sister-in-law, Louise (Clark) Stillinger of Neeses; a brother-in-law, James Neel Shannon, Jr. of Newberry and many special nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

Anne, Susan, & family,
Steve & I are so sorry to hear of Roscoe's passing. Every time we saw him at St. Philips, for a service, concert or just good fellowship and eating, he always had a smile on his face, a friendly nod of his head and a friendly 'hello, good to see you'. Find comfort in knowing he is no longer in pain or suffering, but walking with his Lord and Savior. Cherish your memories and hold in your hearts that so many of us have been blessed by his presence in life.
Our prayers & love are with each of you today and in the days to come.
