The clock of life is wound but once, God didn’t give any man here on earth the power to control the clock of life. The clock of life for Andrew Julian Mercer began on April 5,1919, in Metter, Georgia when God blessed Mamie Johnson and Paul Mercer, Jr., with a handsome baby boy. He was the oldest of three children born into a family which taught the importance of hard work and integrity. From his birth to his demise, Andrew lived out the true meaning of a family patriarch.

Mr. Andrew as he was affectionately called by his family and friends was an exception individual.  As a young man, Andrew received Christ as his Savior and served faithfully as deacon and chairman deacon. Throughout his Christian walk, he has been a member of Bright Star Baptist Church, Saint James Baptist Church, and Bethel Baptist, where he served until his health began to decline.

Mr.  Andrew was gainfully employed at Hercules, Inc., for 37 years as supervisor until he retired. He was a Masonic member for very longtime. He also enjoyed spending time with his familyMr. Andrew enjoyed spending time with his family, cooking, gardening, sharing wisdom and knowledge with everyone he encountered. He was also known as, “Mr. Fix It”.

“To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord” (II Corinthians 5:8). On Tuesday, June 14, 2022, Deacon Andrew (AJ) Mercer answered the summon from his Heavenly Father. He was preceded in death by, mother, Mamie Johnson; father, Paul Mercer, Sr.; daughter, Pearlie Moring; sister, Eunice Mercer Johnson; and brother, Paul Mercer, Jr.
