Nettleton-Dual Mitchell Gober, 85, departed this life for his home in eternity on Friday evening, February 28, 2020 at North Mississippi Medical Center Hospice. He had been in declining health for the last few years. Dual was born in a family of 9 in the Troy Community of Pontotoc County to the late George Mitchell and Linnie Mae McCullough Gober. He was raised in Pontotoc County and married his sweetheart of 63 years, Mamie Ruth Reynolds in Houston on November 16, 1956. He served his county in the U. S. Army during the Korean Conflict primarily from Fort Bliss, Texas. Dual was an expert welder/technician and worked many years for Air Gas and Nex Air retiring about 20 years ago. A piddler and jack of all trades, Dual could fix anything. He enjoyed his shop, woodworking, tending his yard and growing a big garden each year. A better than average musician, Dual was part of a group that played many years known as the Blue Grass Gospel Deliverers. He was good on the guitar and mandolin but his specialty was playing the banjo. He and his wife loved southern and blue grass gospel and were known to follow the Primitive Quartet and Doyle Lawson and Quick Silver. Dual was a "fixture" at the Tupelo Church of God where he faithfully worshiped and celebrated his faith for over 45 years. He held the position of Greeter on Sunday's for his whole life. A quiet, gentle soul, Dual's life reflected his faith and his commitment to the high ideals of New Testament Christianity. His life was not in vain!
