Community Mourns the loss of Edgar Justus
Wednesday, November 04 2020

It seems the hits in 2020 just keep coming as we send our condolences and prayers out to the family of Edgar Sevier Justus, III who was the owner and guitarist of Virginia based band, The Rhondels. The notice was made on the band's Facebook page which states: "I am very saddened to announce that Edgar Sevier Justus III passed away this afternoon from a heart attack. Everything that could be done was done and he fought hard. I'll miss him more than any will know. ❤ "

Edgar was a great guy and we enjoyed talking to him anytime we had the opportunity. Once service information has been shared, we'll be sure to update this page with that information. Our thoughts and prayers go out Edgar's family, bandmates and friends.

Community Mourns the loss of Jimmy Weaver
Sunday, October 11 2020

Photo property of Monique Cunningham

We read the shocking news yesterday afternoon that we lost another Beach Music great, Mr. Jimmy Weaver from Steve Owens and Summertime. So much talent rolled up in one package, it was always great to watch him perform and he was a great friend to so many. According to his website, Jimmy was previously a member of; The Embers, The Main Event Band, The Castaways, Slowhand, Back N' Time and most recently, Steve Owens and Summertime along with the Jimmy Weaver Trio. He also recorded with many other artists and bands across a wide variety of genres.

We've included the original post from the band as well as several videos we've taken the past couple of years below along with his latest single, Runnin' Blue. At the bottom there's also an interview from Johnny's Jukebox on Riptide Radio that John Hall and Jimmy asked us to post for them. Our continued prayers are with Jimmy's family, his Steve Owens and Summertime brothers and all of his friends. He will certainly be missed by so many!

Community Mourns the loss of Phil Laughlin
Sunday, October 04 2020

We'd like to extend our thoughts and prayers to the family of Phil Laughlin and also to the Rick Strickland Band. In a post earlier this evening the band posted the following: " It is with great sadness to share that our long time friend, RSB guitarist and the best RSB Chaplin we've ever had, Phil Laughlin, passed away today at 3pm. But we rejoice knowing that right now he is with Jesus and is perfectly healed. Heaven has surely gained a true angel, and one heck of a guitar player. We will miss you terribly Phil. Please join us in lifting his wife Sherry and their family in your prayers today and in the coming days. Last week, Rick & I visited with Phil & Sherry, and I asked him what was his favorite performance he'd ever played. He said last year with us at the 2019 Cammys. This photo is from that performance."

We've included the band's original post below and to read the obituary and for service information please visit: Omega Funeral Service
