In Loving Memory
Jacob “Leroy” Devine was born on
August 27, 1930 in Bonneau, South
Carolina to the late Jacob and Annie
Devine (Nee Green). He departed this life on August 6, 2018 after a brief illness.
He began this life journey as one of ten children of which six survived. Being a member of a large family, he saw a need to help out so he was willing to work at a young age to help with supporting

Pop, as he was affectionately called, married at a very young age and from
this union six children were born. He moved his family to Philadelphia where

Zuckerman as an apprentice, learning the trade of laying and repairing a hot,
asphalt roof. A beautiful relationship developed between them to the extent
that his employer begins to look at him as a son. Read more ...
