Mr. John G. Wolling
STATESBORO, Ga. -- Mr. John G. Wolling, age 77, passed away on Tuesday, June 19, 2018, in the peace and comfort of his own home (just exactly as he wanted).
    Mr. Wolling spent most of his life in Savannah and graduated from Savannah High School in 1957. He spent two years in the Navy before returning to Savannah, where he enjoyed a successful career in car sales. He and his wife, Ann, moved to Statesboro in 1987, where he opened his own car dealership, John Wolling Motors, which later changed to Anderson Wolling Chrysler Plymouth Dodge. He retired after many years there.
    He enjoyed spending time with his grandkids, playing golf, winning lottery tickets, his friends at The Country Store, his daily crossword puzzle and an evening cocktail.
    He was preceded in death by his parents, Jesse “Buddy” and Frances D. Wolling; daughter, Deborah Pairman; brother, Billy Wolling; and sister, Kay Clark.
    Surviving include his wife of 59 years, Ann (Ya Ya) Wolling; daughter, Donna (Greg) Jarrett; grandson, John Jarrett; granddaughter, Brooke Jarrett, all from Statesboro; brother, Sam Wolling of Atlanta; as well as many nieces and nephews.
    The family requests that memorial contributions be made to Ogeechee Area Hospice, P.O. Box 531, Statesboro, Georgia 30459, who provided excellent care (Jennifer and Virginia) and support (Sandra and Nick) during his last few months at home.
    The service will be private, but family and his close friends are invited to attend an informal backyard gathering at the Jarrett home, 905 Monarch Circle, next Friday, June 29, from 6:30 until 8:30.

    Joiner-Anderson Funeral Home & Crematory is in charge of arrangements.
