  1. Betty, I was just thinking of you and decided to see if you were on Facebook. I was so sorry to just read of Ezra’s passing. My sister, Mickey, passed away in 2001. Please contact me on facebook if you can. My e-mail is not receiving right now. Blessings to you and family.

  2. We are so sorry to hear of your loss.

    We met a man named Ezra Chupp years ago in Charlotte, North Carolina. He was singing with the ‘Singing Men’ in an Ernest Angley meeting. They were all from the Akron area. My husband was an usher in that meeting in 1975 and I’ve always remembered the gentleman who was so nice to us. And what a wonderful voice!
    Is this the Ezra Chupp we met in 1975?
