Chlorus Vaughn Pointer, AKA Von Pointer, 79, died on Wednesday, February 4, 2015 in Anchorage, Alaska

A celebration of life service will be 2pm, Saturday February 14th at Homer United Methodist Church, 770 East End Road, Homer.

Von born in Omaha, NE on October 11, 1935 to Chlorus Laverne and Florence Lichti Pointer. He was raised on the family farms in both Nebraska and Arkansas. Von was known as Sonny or Skeeter in those places. Von came to Alaska for a visit in 1954 and never returned to the farm in Arkansas. He coached boxing and was the Golden Gloves Champ for Alaska in 1962. Von delivered milk to the doorsteps of Anchorage residents and also worked at a variety of grocers in Anchorage, which including Carrs, Piggly Wiggly and the Market Basket. He moved to Homer in 1979 and later to Anchor Point, where he opened his own grocery business in 1986, The Warehouse Inc. He continued to operate the business until his death.

Von adored his grandchildren; often turning off the TV simply to hear them play or bicker. Listening to both brought him joy and a chuckle. He deeply loved his wife, Mary, often asking her "Have I told you today that I love you?" He met obstacles without discouragement and instead soldiered thru with a positive attitude. He always had a smile and a sparkle in his eyes. He will be missed greatly.

Von is survived by his wife, Mary; Sons Mark, Randall (Laurie), James, Raymond, (Chuck), David (Diana); Daughter; Laurie, Amber and Jacque. Grandchildren: Jennifer Earl, Tatum, Nathanael, Jancee, Andrea and Willow, one and great grandchild Riley,
