Obituary for Charley Trammell Elder

Charley Trammell Elder, age 89 of Sevierville, departed this earth to join his heavenly Father on Sunday, October 8, 2017. He was one of four children born to John Hal and Hattie Trammell Elder. Charley, a proud Tennessean and lifelong Sevier County resident, served in the U.S. Army as Specialist Third Class. He was honorably discharged in 1957 and returned to Sevierville where he operated his dairy and tobacco farm. He was also manager for the Sevier Farmers CO-OP for many years. He will be lovingly remembered by his family and many friends as a man of many talents, and a hard worker that would give anyone the shirt off his back. He loved animals of all kinds and had a true gift for farming and gardening.

He was preceded in death by his wife, Wanda Kyker Elder; parents, J. Hal, Sr. and Hattie Elder; sister, Dorothy Catlett; brother, John Hal Elder, Jr.; and niece, Jane Maze.

Charley is survived by his sister, Helen Elder; nephews, John III, Steven, and Joseph Elder; nieces, Barbara Sutton, Sandra Bartlett, and Susan Hayes, along with their spouses and children.

Our deepest appreciation and thanks to the folks at Pigeon Forge Rehab.

Family and friends will meet 10 AM Friday in Alder Branch Cemetery for graveside service and interment with Military Honors provided by American Legion Post 104. Arrangements by Atchley Funeral Home, Sevierville. Online condolences can be made at
