Ulyss Gomillion

February 13, 1931 — August 13, 2021

Ulyss Lamar Gomillion Sr.
For ninety years, our family was blessed to call Ulyss Lamar Gomillion Sr. a brother, uncle, father, grandfather, and great grandfather. He was known in Mobile for being a fantastic carpenter. He worked for many years at Ingalls in Pascagoula, MS and then owned his own construction company, Gomillion Bros.

Ulyss passed away in the comfort of his own home on the morning of Friday, August 13, 2021. His love for his family and friends continues to live on through the memories made throughout his long life. He was a great provider and loved the Lord wholeheartedly. One of his most favorite hobbies was fishing near Dauphin Island. Ulyss was a simple man and enjoyed the simple things in life. He had the bluest eyes and if you ever did meet him, you would have definitely remembered him by those blue eyes.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Henry Ulyess Gomillion and Victoria Ruth Lee, wife Shirley Melvina Gomillion, brother, Rufus Lamon Gomillion and grandson, Phillip John Wilbert.

He is survived by his brother, Lavail Gomillion of Daphne; three sons, Ulyss Lamar Gomillion Jr., Paul David Gomillion, and Andrew Robert Gomillion; three daughters, Sherry Gomillion, Victoria Shirlene Gomillion, Angela Lynn Gunning; grandchildren, Eric Gomillion, Jeremy Gomillion, Lisa Gomillion, Stephanie Axtell, Jennifer Safford, Wendy Wilbert, Nicholas Vasiloff, Andrew Vasiloff, Vanessa Vavich, Michelle Moreland, Christopher Vavich, David Vavich, Danny Berkowitz, Cody Gomillion, Austin Gomillion, Victoria Gomillion; great grandchildren and many other relatives.
