… God has reserved for His children the priceless gift of eternal life; it is kept in heaven for you, pure and undefiled, beyond the reach of change and decay. And God, in His mighty powers, will make sure you get there safely to receive it, because you are trusting Him. It will be yours in that coming last day for all to see. 1Peter 1:4-5

It was a pleasure to know Joyce and being her neighbor, I miss our talks we had and her keeping me straight on the school issues going on when I served on the BOE. She always brighten up the day when you interacted with her. She was my son's favorite during his school years. Prayers of comfort and peace for the family at this time.

I regret that the obituary named the salon as Crazy Hair Salon. The salon was named CRAZY COMBS. This was a major error on the part of the funeral home.

Gene was my Dad's (william Zepp) cousin. He would come over in his Porche to visit back when he lived in Stoney Brook on LI. One day he even picked me up from work at Red Coach Grill in it.I tried to contact Gene when my dad passed on 8/16/17, but he had moved.

In the short time that I’ve known Joyce I saw a wonderful and kind lady. She loved her family immensely. She adored all of her grandchildren. She was sweet and kind to all. She will be deeply missed by all that knew her. She’s in the loving arms of angels now looking down and keeping a watchful eye on her family and many friends. She set a fine example for all that were blessed to know her. ❤️❤️❤️

Thank you for all your caring for me and other people in our neighborhood. I wish COVID did not exist so we all could be there.I remembered being so isolated during Covid that you sent your daughter to check on me. I rode by your house but could not stop because of my own health concerns. Not being able to be with others is one of the sad outcomes of this disease. Your family will stay in my heart!


Kathy Joyner Maland posted on 1/17/22

I am so very sad to learn of Joyce’s passing. We were friends in high school and as the two redheads in our class we did get into some mischief… especially the summer after our Junior year when we told beach visitors we were sisters. What a smile, what a laugh, what joy for life she shared with us all. I will miss knowing she is here among us but know she is smiling down on everyone she loved. My most sincere condolences for all who loved her. RIP my red headed friend. ♥️

Thinking of the family and friends during this difficult time. I still have no words and can't believe your gone. From dirt mudpies and creek swimming, and to sneaking to play David's video games whenever we got a chance. Growing pains, heartbreaks, and growing up. I will never forget you brother and all the wonderful times we had growing up as Gordon Road Goonies. Everytime I check the mail I think of you just praying it's all a bad dream and hoping to find a letter letting me know I'll see you soon. Until we meet again RY start building our clubhouses in the sky. To Lynn and David and the rest of the immediate family please know I am thinking of you today and always!

Steve Olson posted on 1/17/22

My heartfelt condolences to the Walton family, wife Annette, son Jacob and step daughter Kathryn and the grandkids that lit up Jere's eyes. I met Jere about 35 years ago with Tom Werk. Tom and I had become good friends and went to Wilmington from Chapel Hill for a weekend and was the first time I met Jere. We instantly became friends (although it was not hard to with Jere) and established what was to become a life long friendship. The Walton's were dealing with their dad being very sick and even though it was a sad time for Jere and the family, he could always manage a smile which became his trademark. Over the years, we spent much time together in all sorts of adventures and even when I moved to Colorado, we never lost touch. I would come back during the summers and many times he would come to Colorado to ski. Jere was a great athlete and skiing came easy for him. His favorite thing was to see how fast he could get to the bottom and beat everyone else. Speed was the name of his game! I will think of my friend often as I did in his life. My home is speckled with photos of some of the great times we had together and although very sad for his passing, am comforted that he has left behind the pain and suffering that he endured with an attitude that amazed anyone that knew him. My father had a favorite saying, "Always have an attitude of gratitude" and Jere epitomized that. I asked him in a text once if he was scared and he pushed it off and replied that he had had a good life full of family and friends. Definitely an attitude of gratitude...


Chris Love posted on 1/16/22

Steve was one of the best men I have ever met.. he had a heart of gold... and will truly be missed...

Aunt Joyce was everyone's favorite person. She was funny and loving. She gave wonderful counsel and encouragement. Joyce fought fiercely to combat Acute Myeloid Leukemia. Her, equally fierce, love of Christ allows us to know where her soul now lives on.

I have known the Ward family since the early 1940's, of course Joyce was born after they moved to Southport. I have met her on several occasions and she was always one of the sweetest people you could meet. I knew Omega and Roger very well and had kept in touch with them through the years, however, I don't seem to have the correct number for Omega now. I would love to reconnect and know that you are busy at this time. My love and prayers are for the family during these difficult days.

I have known the Ward family since I moved to Southport in 1969. Joyce's parents, Gertha and Jim, were two of the couples who adopted me into their family. Joyce was very much like Gertha, always joyful, caring, with a great sense of humor. I will miss her but know that she is dining at the table with Jesus, maybe even having Gertha's coconut cake.

I came across a Christmas card from Bill, Donna, Jordan and Rowan, dated December 1994. I looked them up and found Bill's obituary. I knew him from Boston University days. He was one of the most gregarious, energetic, and generous friends I've ever had. You can tell he was memorable! I remember him waiting for an overdue check he was owed when he was a political aide. When it arrived, he and Donna took me out to a fabulous Thai restaurant in Boston. I can still see the Beetle! So grateful! Interestingly, my husband died of pancreatic cancer in 2001. So hard.

We loved Ada Lou. The pew across from me will never be the same without her there. She was one of the most faithful ladies I’ve ever known. She was always concerned for others and checked in on those who couldn’t get out often. She was a true blessing to all who knew her. ❤️

Kathy, I’m so sorry to hear about the loss of your mother. My prayers and heartfelt condolences go out to you and your family during this time of sorrow. May God’s presence comfort you during this period of grieving.


Tom Werk posted on 1/14/22

Jere was one of my very best friends since the 5th grade. After our family moved to Wilmington from Cincinnati, Ohio, he, along with his great family, “adopted” me at that time even though I was a “yankee” and orientated me to southern culture and how things were done. We immediately bonded an incredible and unique friendship – since we both had the same love of adventure, sports, humor, dogs and yes also – girls. He was one of the - if not the most - kindest, un-selfish and compassionate people I have ever known. He had such an infectious smile, always was easy to talk to – and made a sincere effort to talk to, be kind and respectful to everyone he met. He was part of our family – and my family members all loved him – especially my mom. I couldn’t bear how he has been terribly suffering from ALS the past couple of years; however, I have seen him confront this such absolutely terrible disease - always with his keen wit, constant sense of humor, and never with a sense of self-pity or sorrow; I was always amazed at how he did this - knowing not many people, including myself, could have done this in this manner. We have shared so many great and funny experiences and times together, and I will always treasure them. From riding Yamaha motorbikes in the 6th grade, sneaking out of houses to go camping, staying up all night playing ping-pong, enjoying countless beautiful sunsets while water-skiing, attending UNC football and basketball games, being a groomsman in my wedding, snow-skiing trips to Colorado – and the list really goes on and on. I really am blessed to have known Jere – and to have the type of special friendship – we have had through these past nearly 50 years. I will miss him tremendously – and feel a part of me has also recently died given how close we were – but happy that he is no longer suffering, and he that he is now in God’s gracious and loving hands.

One in a million.....that is how I will always remember Pat! We spent many afternoons/evenings in her front yard (with and without Vic) solving the problems of the world.....seriously and humorously! I am so sorry for your loss, but I truly believe the way she lived her life is such an inspiration for all of us to keep in mind as we live ours. Rest in peace, Pat.

So many wonderful memories growing up with Aunt Patty (as my family called her) in them. I remember her beloved monkey, Bitsy- (lol); days at pool on Friendly Lane or on the sound at Aunt Betty/Uncle Frank’s or just visiting her at her house So many really good times. I will so miss her laugh! She was always so loving to us and so much fun to be around yet still was true to her sometimes feisty self. (It’s hereditary). I will always cherish these memories. She was one of my favs and always will be. I Love you, Aunt Patty- you RIP now. ♥️ Uncle Billy, Frankie, Bev and families: you’re all in my prayers and deep in my heart. She will be missed! She was one of a kind!

With your words you have created the most beautiful and accurate picture of Pat Ryder "like the trucks". Barry and I loved our time spent with her during the years in Tucson. Pat was a warm and vivacious woman that spread joy wherever she was and whomever she was with. She was a bright and shining star of our physical therapy staff at Life Care Centers. Her loving friendship will forever be cherished memories. She was perhaps the finest example I have ever known of "a life well lived."

I am so glad that we had the time to spend together and we enjoyed the trip even though a few times I thought we were lost, but thankfully the GPS got us to where we were going. Love you and will always remember this trip the talk that we had going there and coming back and will always love you and you will always be in my heart. Take care of her Lord she is in you arms now.

He was always smiling and was such a sweet person and fun to be with! Even though we don't see each other as often as we used to know that the love instilled in us as Walton's is strong and transcends time and we all share in your grief and send our love for all of you! Like Anna said he is now having a great reunion with all of our love ones who have gone on before us! Thank God that we are secure in our knowledge that we will see them all again one day!

I first met John Dee Loudermilk Jr. when I was in the 8th grade at Guy B. Phillips Junior Highschool in Chapel Hill, NC. My childhood friend Jeff Lynn bumped into me in the hallway between classes and told me there was a new kid that I had to meet. And meet we did, John and I became fast friends with our shared love for music, the magic of recording studios, guitars, cars and of course girls. I learned so much from my brilliant, charming friend, good and bad! John and his mother Gwynne Loudermilk, a native of Durham, NC, had divorced John’s father and moved back to the area from Nashville, TN. John’s father John Dee Loudermilk, Sr. was a legendary songwriter and artist and one crazy and eccentric character. The apple indeed doesn’t fall far from the tree. John and I shared adventures from the very beginning. I went with John and his mother Gwynne over the next Christmas break to Nashville where I got the grand tour of Music Row, The Grand Ole Opry, the music venues along Printer’s Alley. My course was set, and I knew I would one day make my own way on Music Row. One of our most memorable visits that Christmas for John and me was being dropped off at Chet Atkins house where we toyed with Chet’s extensive Ham Radio gear in Chet’s basement, we even played a little guitar with Chet in his living room. I was about 15 and didn’t know a lot about who this nice gentleman was, I just knew he was in the “biz” and that was enough to hold my attention. I would learn well who this giant was and the impact he had on music in America and around the world. As I sat on the couch in the living room with John and Chet, he pointed to a picture on the end table next to me and said: “that was taken last week.” I looked and was startled to see a picture of Paul McCartney and his wife Linda sitting right where I was sitting at that moment. I remember thinking: “Who is this guy that was sitting across from me?” It was the first of many memorable encounters with Chet in the years to come. Like all kids of our time, we had a very tight knit, yet inviting, circle of friends, and as we moved from junior high to senior high John traveled north to a private school called Christ Church in Rappahannock, Va. We would hang out during school breaks and of course summer. I was familiar with the school as my older brother Bill had attended the school a few years before John. I recall traveling up once or twice but otherwise I was consumed with my own schooling and teaching myself how to write songs back home in Chapel Hill. We would soon rev-up our friendship when John returned to Chapel Hill. Not long after high school John and I moved to Nashville together to make our way in the Music Business. John was set on building and running a recording studio (Nashville Sound Connections) and I was determined to be an artist, record producer and songwriter. There are no set routes in this exciting, frustrating, and exhilarating business but we managed to hold onto our dreams and both of us made our way in our own fashion. John and I lost touch when he moved to Wilmington, NC to work in the film industry as a sound engineer. We would run into each other here and there and recount adventures, but I’m sorry to say our connection waned over the years. It has been a sad shock to hear of John’s death from his brother Rick, life is an adventure if you’re lucky and John and I enjoyed more than our share. It was nice to revisit some of those adventures with Rick. I’ve spent the last couple of days remembering my old friend, recounting some of our amazing adventures, some good and some, well not so smart, ha. There is no doubt that John and his family changed the course of my life forever and for that I am eternally grateful. RIP John! Cheers, Wyatt

An Outpouring of Love Charlene was a part of our lives as both a friend, confidant, and partner in business. Charlene had a passion for both life and nursing. I remember her interview with Joyce Bachteller, Nursing Radio Show host, where she asked Charlene “When and how she knew she wanted to be a nurse” Charlene shared this story: I continue to fondly recall my most favorite Golden Book growing up “Nancy Nurse” –in addition to Nancy being the “heroine in the story,” the book came with 5 Band-Aids in three shapes attached to the inside cover: patches, strips and spots -. So, from about the age of 5 years old, I thought about being a nurse. As I reached high school, I knew the combination of helping others and science was perfect for me. And that is where the legacy began. We miss her so very much! When we told our clients of her passing, and there was an outpouring of love. We wanted to share with the family comments shared by the lives she touched! Ann Coss & Debra Kotila Sister Andrea Lee, Alverno I am so sad to hear this news - such a devastating loss. May Charlene’s spirit and great energy continue to inspire all of us who care so deeply about “Alverno in Arizona.” She was and will continue to be in new ways, a powerful force. Blessings to all Charlene’s colleagues and family. Alverno will always be in her debt. Norm Allgood, Synergis Education She will be missed, but her legacy will live on in every nurse that has the ability to earn their nursing degree from Alverno College in Arizona. Joseph Foy, Alverno I am so very sorry to learn of Charlene’s passing. Her strong efforts and expertise helped to chart a new pathway of opportunity for Alverno, and her gentle good humor and kindness have left an indelible mark on the hearts of all with whom she worked. She will indeed be missed. Sarah Ferguson, Texas Luther University I also express my sadness about Charlene's passing. She has been critical in moving the DEMSN and Houston project forward. She was wonderful to work with and we will miss her wisdom and guidance. Mary Van Brunt, Gwynedd Mercy University I am so sorry to hear that news. She was definitely a huge help to Ann for the DEMSN. Please relay our condolences to her family. Laurie Wittbrodt, Synergis Education I was sadden to hear about the news of Charlene this week. I know both Julie and Chris thought highly of her and the work she did for Lourdes. Debbie Cottrell, Texas Luther University I’m grateful for her help and commitment to our Nursing efforts. Amie Bedgood, Texas Luther University Charlene was an amazing, smart, and thoughtful woman. She will be greatly missed. Jason Ferguson, Synergis Education My heartfelt condolences. She will be missed. She is now at rest and peace with God in Heaven. Margaret (Peg) Rauschenberger, Alverno Charlene was a wonderful woman. Knowledgeable, competent, and kind, with a sense of humor thrown in. She will definitely be missed. Lauire A. Kunkel-Jordon, Alverno We were blessed to have had her on our team and appreciate everything she did to move Alverno-Mesa forward. Wishing her family and friends peace in the difficult days ahead. David Fattu, Synergis Education I was fortunate to work with her a bit and she is an amazing professional educator.

Thank you for sharing you beautiful wife, mother, grandmother and sister with our West Virginia Junior College team. She was a joy to work with and her knowledge of nursing and her leadership helped us achieve the dream of our founder which was to start a rural nursing program. She will forever be memorialized with the naming of our first Mobile Nursing Lab, the Miss Charlene, which will travel throughout the state providing a place for our nursing students to practice their skills through simulation. Her leadership and vision will live on in the lives of the many graduates who will become nurses thanks to her. May she be celebrating her eternal reward and may those who love her who are left behind find comfort in the memories of a truly special lady.

Laszlo Balogh posted on 1/10/22

Dear Drimusz Family & Friends, I should have been the first one reacting to this terrible event. I feel bad that I wasn’t, but my initial shock lasted this long. The words just didn’t want to come. We were shaken to our core, we were thinking of Laci a lot, we drank in his memory at the Christmas dinner but I had no strength to write all this down. When László has left this world, Ildikó and I lost a friend we have shared so much with for more than three decades, originating from our roots back in Hungary. We shared good and bad, family, work, cultural activities, we were just on the same wavelength during a life time. Our friendship endured geographical separation and challenging times in our lives, but even sometimes not talking for months, when we did talk, we picked it up exactly where we left it the previous time. We will deeply miss a friend, who we could always count on and who brought joy, laughter in to our lives at every occasion, who saw firsthand our kids grow up and who got his own nick name from our kids: “tojásos Laci bácsi” (sorry for the Hungarian). László was that kind of a person, that is what can be read on these pages, this is why everybody loved László. For the family and friends who left behind and grieving with us, you are in our thoughts and please accept our deepest sympathy. With love, Ildikó and László Balogh

In reading the news from Surrattsvile, is where I learned about his passing. He was my biology teacher when I first came to Surrattsville, late fall of that year. The following year he was my chemistry teacher and I can remember him telling me or I should say encouraging me in chemistry stating, "I know that you can do better than this (note I was barely passing)." My response was the chemistry and I did not get along. He just smiled and continued to encouraged me to try.

My husband and I are deeply saddened by the news of John's passing upon returning home from visiting family over the Christmas holiday.. John and his late mom Gwynne became neighbors since we moved to Landfall in 2006. In time, John enjoyed reminiscing about growing up in the Nashville music industry and later his career in the music and film industry. His family was well entrenched in the Nashville music industry when he was very young. His father was the honored songwriter for the hit song "Tobacco Road". And during that time, his parents threw elaborate parties with star-studded guest lists such as Elvis Presley and George Hamilton. Being so young, John did not think of his association with such big stars as anything extraordinary. To him, their frequent visits seemed like favorite uncles in the family. So, as John thought about what he would like for his own career to be, it was a natural for it to be in the music industry. He settled in as a sound engineer for the stars which evolved into having one of the most state of the art sound studios of the time. In our last conversation just before Christmas, he remembered the time when Michael Flatley brought his RiverDance group to him for a recording. This state of the art studio had the floor to flex with the sound giving optimum sound performance for the artist. The RiverDance group gave the studio "a run for it's money" making the building flex, and everyone that were present were extremely pleased. Then when film Director De Laurentis came to Wilmington, so did John the sound engineer with the film industry until his retirement. What an extraordinary life! May you rest in peace, John. .

My sincere condolences to Lib , Jason, Tracy , Amy and to all of Coy's extended family.' I've known Coy since High School, and we worked together after that for GE over 37 years. Coy's life stories always included his love of his family, and especially his mom and dad . They too were very special people. Coy was just a lot of fun to be around. At work, but especially at play. Nobody could catch fish better than Coy, and he taught me many of his "secrets" over the years. At GE Coy was always the person that trained other employees. He always made learning a new skill easy, and was fun to work with. He told me one night while training me on a new job that I must have ate amnesia sandwiches at lunch, because he said I had forgotten all he taught me earlier!! Many good memories about Coy , but he should be remembered most for helping so many people. Coy was good man, and great friend. There will be many toasts to you my friend.

Sawyer was always so respectful. I remember him in the hospital when Sheila first gave birth and he was just a beautiful boy who turned into a beautiful man. Words aren't sufficient to describe Sawyer. My thoughts and prayers are with the entire family.

My Uncle Blake was one of my favorite people. He was always so charming and delightful - I have especially fond memories of him from when I was growing up. His positivity was radiant and he always had an entertaining story or short life lesson to share every time I saw him - and his giving me the lose change in his pocket was a generous way of making sure those lessons stuck forever. There were three - among many - that have stayed with me my whole life, in no particular order: love your Mom and Dad - they make you who you are; especially your Mom; your reputation and integrity and relationships are the most valuable things in life; and take half of every raise you get in your career and save them. Of course, he shared these lessons in the most interesting and charming way - that too made them stick. Anyway, I’ve always had to warmest of places in my heart for him. He was a truly great man: incredible husband, father, brother, grandfather, uncle. He will be missed. He helped shape many wonderful people. His legacy carries on. God bless you Blake Cardwell.

Met Sawyer at Scottshill Baptist Church with my friends the Marks


John Long posted on 1/7/22

Met Sawyer at Scottshill Baptist church in the parking lot while talking with my friends the Marks. Life is so precious and short. The Bible says that our lives are like a vapor that appears for a little while and vanishes away. We aren’t promised tomorrow but I know who holds tomorrow and that is the Lord Jesus Christ. During this sad time of an awesome man’s life that was cut short, let’s all be reminded of the one who gives life, eternal life, and that is Jesus Christ. If you don’t know Him, today is the day of salvation. Please keep these grinds of ours in your prayers and seek God’s wisdom in the days ahead. John 3:30 “He (Christ) must increase and I must decrease”. John 14:1-6 Psalm 23 1 Peter 5:7 1 Thessalonians 5:16-17

The first time i remember seeing Sawyer he was a baby wrapped in canvas in the bottom of his dad’s jonboat. They were taking one of their first river runs. His dad nurtured his love and respect for the outdoors and Sawyer took to it like a duck to water. I saw so much of his mom and dad in him as he was growing up and I watched him grow into the man that you would be proud to call a friend. We will miss you Sawyer!

I’ve been told I played with John and Peyton when we were all preschool age, but the first time John and I ran into each other after starting college was when each of us showed up to see George Hamilton IV playing for an anniversary celebration at a Ford dealership in Durham. A car salesman ran up to us seconds after we connected, asking what kind of car we were looking for. John told the salesman we were newlyweds and our parents said they'd buy us the vintage T-Bird on their showroom floor as a wedding present. We ALMOST got a test drive! A few weeks later John took me home to meet his mom, Gwynne. I apologized that we were late to dinner because I could not get John to put down my guitar and head out. Gwynne got all excited and asked me to encourage John to play the guitar any way I could. She said, “he hasn’t played the guitar since the last time he got struck by lightning!” “Excuse me Gwynne? The LAST time?!?!?” Not long after that he asked me to come inside while he picked something up from his grandparents place. When we walked in there were hundreds of parts and wires and circuit boards spread out on the living room floor. He told me not to touch anything. His grandparents had just gotten a fancy new TV and he had taken it apart to see how it worked. He warned everyone not to touch the parts cuz he knew where everything was and he needed to make time to put the TV back together again. Another time John bluffed us past security to get in backstage at the Grandfather Mountian Music Festival. We ended up having dinner with Vassar Clements while John McEwin tuned ALL the instruments for the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band across the room. Another time I unlocked the door to my house, came inside to find a Gordon Lightfoot album on the turntable (that I did not put there) before I walked into the kitchen and discovered a string of trout in the sink. I knew John Loudermilk had been there!

It seems like Robyn is the happiest when Kev does not have anything to do with his family. I know if u were here some changes would be made. I remember when u would get so mad when he called me Connie. I just hope and pray that he can live with his decisions. I am not giving up on him no matter what. He is all I have left in this world. You and him were my world. I know he still loves me no matter what. A mother's love is stronger than anything. They would laid down and die for their children. I would give anything to be happy again and have my son back. Please work your magic. Take care of Dad and Kaya for me and give them plenty of kisses. Mom and Kev. PS.

It has been very hard to accept that Laci is no longer with us. Laci was in better condition than most 40 year old men. He was full of life, and ready to take on the challenges of retirement. Laci did not believe in living in the "comfort zone" either intellectually or physically. The definition of retirement for Laci was plans for more solar projects, other projects related to water and air filtration, etc. Other plans included biking across the US, keeping in shape by swimming laps, badminton, and other activities, as well as learning a new language. He set challenges for himself, as if life did not already give him enough challenges. He lost too many close family members much too early and he had his own close brush with death. But he survived the life threatening accident. Survival was just another challenge for Laci. He constantly pushed himself to go to higher limits. The higher limits were not just of intellectual and physical nature, but also character related. He strived to be a man with a very high level of integrity. You could always count on him to be honest, kind, and to "have your back" when needed. Very few knew of his extensive accomplishments as he was a very modest man. We will miss his friendship, his welcoming smile, his kindness, and all the ways he also challenged us to go further from our "comfort zone" . He is a great loss to his wife, kids, and friends and to the world. He still had a lot to contribute had he lived. Rest in peace Laci. Though you are not with us, you are really not gone forever as you will remain in our thoughts forever. Rozsa and John

It's taken waiting for quiet for me to get the thoughts out... Sorry for the delay. David was Baltimore. His living room was an homage to Cal Ripkin. Baseballs, Wheaties boxes... Some people have tray ceilings; Dave had Orioles shelves. The day Dave passed, Baltimore should have observed a moment of silence, because they lost an unwavering fan. I've never understood people's obsession with pro sports - until I met Dave. I think it was a great escape for him. I first met Dave... when he sent his wife as a stand-in for HIS job interview. That's a story I've enjoyed telling a few times. He was hired as a radio copywriter at WGNI, and was a good one. It's hard to describe Dave's smile or laugh. It was a bit sly, and dry... a snicker? I rarely heard him belly laugh like some do - but his sideways smile and grin let you know he had a good sense of humor and wit. I'm not sure whether the term "dad joke" had been invented back then, but he was good for a few of them. Horseshoes and darts. He was a good dart thrower. We were on a bar league together for a while. He had his own unique and accurate throw. I got to know several venues and friends through our shared dart interest. Salty dogs or greyhounds. I remember several nights standing outside with 3 or 4 other guys enjoying the grapefruit juice, and sharing life stories. It was a cast of characters. And Preakness cookouts, with a little wager. Dave opened his house to me (and my dog Lilly) when I came back to Wilmington the second time. He was always kind in that regard. That's another fond memory; Dave and his beloved dogs. And his mother Edith occasionally visiting, and sharing conversations about Whiskeypaleans. We went to different Episcopal churches, but it was always an amusing conversation. We drifted apart the past few years, whether it was politics or life events...Who knows. We used to stay in touch regularly, and I missed that friendship. At this age, we lose various friends - and it makes me reflect on just what life is about, and what difference we make to those we meet on our journey. Dave is missed. Rest in Peace, Dave.

I will forever hear her laughter and feel her love and presence when I think of her. Which I do, especially when shopping and at craft fairs. It makes me smile just thinking of those times. What a blessing she was in my life!

Laszlo was my class-fellow and a friend at the University in Budapest. We have spent a lot of time together studying for our exams. After he left Hungary, we could meet personally only at the university annual reunion, but we were in contact all time via mail. This year, I sent a Christmas greeting and received the sad news from his wife, shocking me. I’ll never forget him. Rest in pace.

We met through playing pickleball in Brunswick Forest. Laszlo was always smiling, had a positive attitude and he was very modest once I found out how well he played. He was willing to play with anyone even if they didn't play as well as he did. It didn't matter, he just wanted to play. His encouragement and positive attitude would always make me play better. My heart goes out to all of Laszlo's love ones. He touched a lot of people and he will be sadly missed by all that knew him. My Deepest Sympathy and Prayers, Joanne Reeves

Bruce Chmieleski posted on 12/30/21

I will always remember Laszlo as an indefatigable opponent on the badminton court and a genuinely friendly gentleman beyond the game. We had memorably-competitive matches in Seattle, Washington DC, Florida and California where he had the upper hand in singles play and I returned the favor in doubles. We had a serendipitous meeting in Budapest in 2018, where over a beer we hatched a plan to bicycle across the U.S. west-to-east in 2020. Alas, we were forced to delay our adventure due to Covid. I will greatly miss that opportunity to hang with Laszlo for such an extended trip but will think of him each time I set out on a country road. I hope that such an act on my part will comfort his family just a bit in knowing that Laszlo has left each of us with fond and lasting memories.

Bonnie, My sincere condolence for our loss. Al was a true believer in the Sons of the American Revolution mission. His inputs to ensure the success of all activities of the Lower Cape Fear Chapter, SAR are appreciated. He made everyone else feel they were important while ensuring the SAR mission was carried on. He was a friend to each and every one of our chapter members but I especially felt that he was always there to assist me. I miss him and his affable way to make a good situation even better.

You were such a sweet blessing in my life when I needed it the most. You kept me sane as my whole world fell apart around me. You always reminded me how much God loves me and that I will never have to walk that path alone. My heart breaks here on earth because you are no longer here. Yet, I know that Heaven is much sweeter with you there. I am going to miss our chats, especially about our babies and how quickly they grew up on us. I will send extra love and hugs to your girls as I know their hearts are breaking as well. I will never forget the love and kindness that you showed to me and my girls. Until we meet again. ❤️

Proverbs 31: 25 through 28 she is a woman of strength and dignity and has no fear of old age. When she speaks her words are wise, and kindness is the rule for everything she says. She watches carefully all that goes on throughout her household, and is never lazy. Her children stand and bless her; so does her husband. Mother taught us about God and His miracles. She read her Bible and prayed constantly calling each of her children, grandchildren and great grand children by name. But her prayers did not stop there. Every where she went she witnessed for our Lord. Strangers would ask her to remember them in prayer. I want each of them to know their names were in her prayers. Mother made sure if the church doors were open we were there. As we became teenagers and wanted to socilize her rule was they had to go to church with us. Well we usually never saw them again because if you were not familiar with holiness it could be quite intimidating. When we began driving Mother would tell us to get in the right lane that we needed to be in to reach our destination even if it was 30 miles away. Many years ago Mother got in the right lane and she has reached her destination. Mother, I will miss you but I feel peace and happiness for you. How often have I heard you say that you couldn't wait to go to heaven and walk the streets of gold with Jesus. Love you always!

My heart is so burdened and I am in grief overload. I knew this day would come and wanted to be prepared but it is hard to prepare for life as you know it to be over. Mama was the constant in my life. She had a strict code that she lived by. She never backed away from the hard jobs. She always strove to do the next right thing. She had the perfect birthday, July 4th, because she was a mover and a shaker. Many people may have shared similar backgrounds with too little money and worldly possessions but mine was different because of my parents. I knew that when I went out to face the world I had very strong parents at my back. There was never a moment that I doubted their love and support of me. Selfishly, I am not ready to give her up...just one more hour, just one more day. Thank you, God, for blessing me with the perfect Mother and now I ask for your strength and guidance in learning to live without her until we meet again.

Because of u I will cherish the good memories and carry them with me forever. Because of you I believe n angels and the afterlife and know I will see u again one day.

I was trying to recall how many years I have know you - from the time you were just a little girl, maybe 6 or so. We certainly had some great times together, shared some wonderful meals, you n Vicki being flower girls in Judy Kuhlke Wedding, played football, helping prepare for your High School Graduation Party!WOW, a lot of years under the bridge. Bedford was a fun loving guy n was a good State Trooper. I’m not surprised he continued in Law Enforcement even after he left WV. So glad he could spend his last days with you. God bless you pretty lady. I live in Raleigh, NC n if you are ever going to be in this area, please let me know. Would love to see you. I would be glad to send you my personal information.

It must have been third or fourth grade at St. Joseph's Catholic school. It was winter and Ed and I got caught by Sister Alice throwing snowballs at the girls. When recess was over she marched us up to teh front of teh class. Another boy, whom I will not embarrass by naming were lined up facing the class. Sister Alice was slapping her ruler against the palm of het hand and ordered us to all bend over to get our punishment. The other guy started crying and Sister asked him if he was sorry. He barely could eke out a yyyyes and she told him to sit down. While this was going on Ed looked over at me and made a really funny face...we both started laughing. "So you boys think this is funny" All we could do is laugh harder as she gave us a few good swats. Miss you buddy.

My heart is sad for the loss of "Mama Raye." Although I never met her in person, I became a fan of her through her daughter, Barbara. I will miss the posts and pics of her. Heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of this amazing woman.

I know she is with Grandma and Grandpa W.D


Kelly Sellers posted on 12/24/21

Lord I have to many to list I've spent my entire life with her 41 years. She was absolutely the best mother anyone could ask for sure. everyone has ups and downs but it's not every day that you have a best friend. If I were to rob a bank she would be the getaway driver. No matter what happened she always had my back when I was down she picked me up when she was down I picked her up I'm still somewhat surprised and in shock that she is going to heaven but I can guarantee you she's up there having a ball with her mom and dad she loved everyone she ever met and spent time with she has friends all over the country. And the world definitely lost an angel and heaven gained one more.

Dear Gloria and family, Tex will be greatly missed by all that knew him. I first met Tex at Thalian Hall many years ago. He and his band, The Dixie Pioneers along with Lesley Aman, Jimmy Davis and Billy Shepard. Tex was always the star because of a gifted talent and a natural personality that we all loved. He spent many hours at our house in Leland practicing with the bands that he played in. As a Christian myself I can still hear him closing out the program (Over At Al's) with (The Nail Scared Hand). I could go on forever talking about my friend Tex Lancaster but his biggest admirer of all was my Dad (Hayseed) and as I remember that Buck Owens song they are (Together Again).

Alan was unforgettable. I met Alan in 2013 while he was doing carpentry on my home. We hit it off immediately and continued our friendship. Alan was very smart, knew his facts and could argue exhaustion. He was always willing to lend a hand and help out when a need arose. He loved his family and always wanted the best for them. Alan was not a material guy, but he loved his guns, guitars, jeep and antique hunting. We kept in touch to the end; he knew he had a friend he could count on, and I did, too. Rest in peace dear friend. And sympathy to your family.

A man that if anyone met they enjoyed being around him. The clerks at any gas station he got his coffee from would know this and smile every morning when he came in. He had a personality that made you smile wether you wanted to or not. I never knew anyone that didn’t like Allan even when he wasn’t in the mood he still smiled. His craftsmanship is all over Wilmington, from the Battleship to Arlie Gardens ( he was pictured in the Morning star ) to wood work on the finest houses around, he was a man that loved what he did and was great at it. A dear friend that I have had for over 30 years, I will miss him for the rest of my years. Also, he was my favorite person to have a Budweiser with and listen to his politics and 10/10 he was correct.. Let’s Go Brandon! Rip my big brother...

Joe was as authentic as they come when you talk about one being a follower of Christ. I once heard a Catholic apologist once say, you can love humanity but not love human beings. Well, Joe loved both and he was an example for us all. His last few months were a testimony to the value of redemption suffering and truly dying a happy death, in Faith, Hope and Charity. Love you Joe!

Caroline was a good friend. We had become friends with Caroline and Ernie around 10 years ago. We have a beach home on the same road they live on.We enjoyed many good times at there house and they at our home. I will miss the talks, shopping trips, good times and the laughter we shared. The last time I was with Caroline, we were at the paint store choosing paint for her kitchen to start a new project. I feel as if I knew Caroline all my life. Caroline was such a blessing to us. I know my husband feels the same. Ernie our prayers and love for you and your family.

All the girls in the high school were in love with Mr. Jenkins - we thought he looked like a movie star. But that was not the most outstanding thing about him. He was kind and funny and good. He had the gift of not making you feel foolish because you didn't get every question correct. I feel so fortunate to have known him then and also to have spent time with him over the last 10 years. We talked regularly on the phone and even visited him in NC- his intellect and keen sense of story telling seemed to get sharper every year. When I think of him now, I don't think of him as "gone",-- his presence is ever more meaningful. RIP to a beautiful man, friend and mentor. Always love.

Linda, so sorry to hear of Lonnie's passing, even though I have not seen Lonnie since we graduated from Hampton in 1960, I have been a friend of his on Facebook. In high school I spent many many latet nights shooting baskets, playing one-on-one and playing "Horse" with Lonnie on our lighted alley basketball court. Considered Lonnie a life long friend as did many other "Crabbers" in the Class of 1960.

Dear Rita...Always a warrior for God, you were one of His mighty miracles surviving when doctors said you wouldn't because He had plans for you! Remembering our many, many hours of coffee time, crafts, puzzles and the only time I went shopping at 3AM on a black Friday (since you didn't drive)! You taught me that when I was troubled or couldn't sleep to just open my Bible and start reading and God would answer....I still do this! The past years have been tough on us both physically, financially, family obligations but it never stopped our friendship or love! I know you are with our Lord and Savior and that is my comfort. I prayer for peace and comfort for Justin, Sammy & family and Joyce & family. Till we meet again my friend!

Moved to Horn Road 2 years ago. I met Billy by stopping at his produce stand. He was always friendly like he had known me forever. I would buy a tomato and hand him a $10 . He would try to give change. Then later it would be a $20 for some squash and a tomato. He and I came to a understanding. Please,No change. I told him I appreciated not having to run to a store. That he was there to wave at me on a regular bases. We sadly watched his health deteriorate & his truck give him trouble. We saw others stepping in to help him. Through it all he turned around and waved with a big smile. As I turned onto Carolina beach road. I’d go in and out multiple times a day. He would Always throw a hand up. “Mr Billy” we will miss you.

A sad lost indeed. One more attribute for Terry was the Rooke tradition of loving words. This we all inherited from our grandfather.

Many wonderful memories of trips with Caroline and Ernie,workshops for HBGFWC and delightful conversations with Caroline. She was always available for you with wit, sincerety and love of life. Even as her health was failing, one special memory will remain with me from when we were shopping to complete a summer project to refresh her home decor. She purchased one painting and loved a second one but decided not to purchase. We traveled on to pick up another item and Caroline was tiring so she asked me to go buy it. When I returned she smiled, “I called and purchased the second painting, we can get it later “. I am so thankful all was installed for her to enjoy before God called her home. She was loved and will truly be missed. God bless Ernie and family.

Mr. Jenkins was my favorite Science teacher. He taught in such a way that he elucidated complex concepts in Chemistry. The ability to effectively explain complex concepts isn’t just awesome. It is a service to the world. I remember the joy in his eyes when “the light bulb went off” in his students. Now that I am a high school Science teacher, I share that same joy as I strive to emulate his practice everyday. Prayers of comfort are being extended to his family and friends. Rest well, Mr. Jenkins. Thank you for instilling a love of Science in me.

Jeremy grew up w/my children around the corner from us. I remember him as a young, confident boy w/a slow swagger in his step. A few years ago, my grown daughter & her husband & I stopped at a yard sale. It took my daughter, Randi, to tell me , “that’s Jeremy!” As my children will attest to, I “have to talk, say something!” Of course I refreshed Jeremy’s memory as to who I was. He quickly called (I believe at the time), his girlfriend to come out, meet me. SHE WAS PREGNANT, with their son. Jeremy glowed as he pointed to her belly & told us, THEY WERE HAVING A BABY!! I smile as I remember. He loved his son from the beginning. The very thought of being a dad, overwhelmed him with pride. Rejoice in this special memory. Remember how Jeremy loved, his compassion, his life. May God be with you all ❤️❤️

Mr Jenkins was an amazing chemistry teacher. He made learning fun. One of my favorite memories was at the end of the year he wanted to have a class party to celebrate the accomplishments of the class. The administration told him no. So to Get around this he told all the students to bring in a snack food to share. We had the party but we had to right up a lab report. This was our final "Lab" for the year. I will always have fond memories of his class.

Lynn Ingram posted on 12/7/21

Glen Jenkins stole my heart from the first conversation that we had, although I don't remember the subject of that talk, because over the handful of years that I knew him, our conversations covered every subject imaginable. Glen knew history like no person I've ever known - the history of Wilmington, of his beloved Atkinson, United States history, the history of communities and the people who make them what they are. He knew his own history; one afternoon, he shared one of the books he'd written of his family's genealogy, and this was no mere recitation of births and deaths and marriages; he knew and told the stories of all the people in all those photos. Glen knew science - chemistry, of course, the subject he long taught, yet also the science of the human body, the science of plants and animals. the science of cooking. Many of the students he taught in his long career stayed in touch with him, and he was always so pleased when he shared with me one of those stories. Glen knew more about what makes the body work and not work than anyone I knew; his understanding of vitamins and minerals and essential elements was astounding. He shared his knowledge of what makes various plants flourish, and he shared the same knowledge of animals, being especially fond of knowing Monkey, his cat, and getting to know my new baby, Annabelle. Glen knew cooking, and oh, was I one of the fortunate to enjoy the marvelous dishes he prepared, from chicken and rice to pound cake (made with the addition of squash) to plum dumplings - and I tell you true, there is no delicacy on the earth greater that plum dumplings made by Glen Jenkins. Glen shared with me any number of books, on any number of subjects, and he was also quick to share a joke or a funny story. There's a divine story about the gift of a pair of gloves, and I shall remember him and the mischievous twinkle in his eye every time I tell it. Glen was the consummate gentleman, one of that dying breed of men who still rises when a lady enters the room. He was fierce in his stance on fairness and justice and the proper discharge of one's duties and had little patience (rightly so) for those who shirked responsibilities and sought to further their own lives at the expense of others. The world is a poorer and dimmer place with the passing of Glen Jenkins. Those of us who knew him will forever be enriched by the blessing of his friendship, his wit, his intelligence, and his grand heart. This season, when we say, "Hark! The herald angels sing," it is a certainty that that heavenly choir includes the true and clear voice of Glen Jenkins, beloved by so many.

Henry Smith posted on 12/7/21

One of the greatest privileges of my 68 years was knowing Glendal for 52 of them. His example as my 11th grade Chemistry teacher set extraordinarily high bars for integrity, patience, the pursuit of excellence, creativity and thoughtfulness, and although I and others often fell short of his expectations of all of us he never ceased to urge us on. And the image he cemented into our consciousnesses of the perfect scholar and gentleman has stuck with us to this day. And although that would've been plenty to qualify Glendal as one of the most important forces in my lifetime, after my experience as his student, I had the indescribably magnificent and immeasurably valuable experience of working as Glendal's helper over several academic summers in the Capitol Hill rowhome restoration business that he ran -- while he simultaneously operated his very high-end antique store and maintained a full-time teaching career! I couldn't believe that there was an individual who knew as much about wiring a house and laying brick as he did about Avogadro's number and balancing equations! The experience of working with Glendal one-on-one, five days a week over that several year period was one of great joy, amazement and enlightenment -- while learning invaluable skills I was also continually regaled by Glendal with his innumerable stories of history, culture, science, and sometimes off-the-wall topics. The icing on the cake was Glendal's often surprising and incredibly droll and sophisticated sense of humor. Glendal may have shuffled off this mortal coil, but he will always be with me and inspire me to try to be as much like him as possible.

Ramona was one of the kindest people anyone could meet. We go way back to our high school years at New Hanover high. She will be missed ! Angel, you were her greatest gift. She was so proud of the woman you became. You truly were your Mother's Angel. She loved you more than anything. My prayers are with you all.

Elda and family--I am sorry for your loss. When the Kingdom Hall was being built on Carolina Beach Road--Johnny was a shuttle driver. If the passengers were not local, he took the opportunity to share some local history of the area. He had an enjoyable and delightful time doing this and the listeners came away with some useful knowledge.

My prayers will remain with the family, especially as you all go through the holidays without him. Robert was such a sweet and dear man and I always enjoyed him in Sunday School. His New Hope church family will miss him. My favorite memory would be the way he would light up when I made the sausage balls for coffee hour. I can still hear him saying “Sandy, did you make these?” and he would tell me how good they were! I am thankful he is no longer suffering and is with his Heavenly Father now. Merry Christmas and God bless you and carry you through this tough time.

I could always tell Dawson was at the fancy vending machine by my office by the big sigh he would let out while standing in front of it. That would be where most of our conversations were held when we weren't talking about treatment oriented supervision. I could always tell he cared very much about people and it showed in his hard work with probation and in conversations about life outside work. He will be very missed and I believe he has left a positive impression on people that won't be forgotten.


Ashley Harrell posted on 12/2/21

My best memories of grandma was when I was a little girl and she used to play dress up with me and put make up on me and we would paint each others finger nails. Also all those Sunday morning breakfasts she the smell of biscuits and grits and eggs would wake you up. It was always a good day at grandmas.

Dianne, I'm so sorry for your loss. George was a great, caring guy. We loved having you as neighbors. In fact, I still have the hostas from your yard growing in my garden. I remember when George bought the car wash and some ladies from RJR decided to get their car washed after lunch. It was a really busy day and George was helping the crew dry the cars. The ladies went back to work and remarked, "poor George, he's working in at the car wash!" The last time I saw George, we were playing golf with Jay Denmark. Always thinking ahead, when we got to the fairway by your house, we detoured over to the cooler of beer in your backyard. That's the memory I want to keep of George. RIP

Dawson was such a good dude in a world where there just aren't enough of them. As only I know, he once did something for me out of the goodness of his heart that eventually led to me my meeting my wife, which led to us having an amazing son. He didn't have to do that, but he did. But that was Dawson. Forever indebted to you, bud. Rest easy.

Dawson was the best probation officer I have ever worked with. (and that's saying a lot because I've worked with some fantastic folks). He truly cared for those he served and he tried his damnedest to help those who often times didn't want to be helped but needed it the most. He will truly be missed by so many. Such a good soul. RIP Dawson.

Dawson, words cannot express the sadness in our hearts upon learning of your passing. You were definitely one of a kind and will be missed. I thoroughly enjoyed being around you, laughing when I heard you sigh through the wall because our offices joined, and giving you crap about NC State. I'll never forget you kissing Cookie Monster and I asked if y'all were going to have babies. I'll also never forget going out with you in the field as a rookie and telling you the passenger seat in the car didn't go any further back, so you sat with your knees in the dashboard. I secretly laughed at you for several days. Rest easy, friend. Until we meet again.

I worked with Dawson as a probation officer for several years. I even had the privilege to be supervised by him for a short time. He was a dedicated employee and supervisor. He was also the instructor for my OC Pepper Spray certification. He got to spray me right in the face!!! It's certainly an experience I will always remember. The world lost a wonderful man way too soon. You will be missed Dawson.

Don't be shy about asking for help. Love and prayers,

I first met Brenda when she was cutting hair at the mall in '83. We became friends and I went to her every time I needed a trim or a perm. When I moved to Richmond, I would drive four hours just to go to Wilmington, so only Brenda could do my hair. She was a dear sweet friend. I will miss her infectious laugh and all her wonderful posts on Facebook. Fly high Brenda and give Shaun a hug for me. ♥️

Dawson, you were my go-to back up chief when you were there. While in the administration I’m not ashamed to say you were the strongest leader there. You stood by your officers and supported them. For all of that and your genuine nature, you have my complete respect and appreciation. You will be greatly missed but I hope that you are now able to rest peacefully. My sincerest condolences to all of Dawson’s family and friends, I hope you all find comfort knowing that Dawson impacted so many lives in such a positive light.

There Tom, Bob, George, and me are playing golf at Cape Fear National, it is December and a bit chilly. George dressed nattily as usual, with a nice new vest - that happens to be a battery powered warming vest. George steps up to the tee and drives the ball 200 yards right down the middle of the fairway. Of course none of us can drive anywhere near that far but we attribute that to the battery powered vest. Roll the clock 6 months forward, no vest for George but he's still hitting the ball 200 yards. We rethink our plan and decide not to buy battery powered vests as i would not help our game one bit. George always the smile and friendly gent is missed already. Some people are just great human beings and George was one of the very few.

There's a hole in my heart over losing a friend of 25 years. Dawson and I worked closely together for several years in Drug Treatment Court. Over the past few days, several previous Drug Court participants have reached out to express their sorrow over his passing and tell me of the respect they had for Dawson because of his fairness, his empathy and his willingness to help them in any way he long as they were willing to help themselves. May we, his numerous friends and his family, take a measure of comfort in our happy memories of his smiles and laughter and how he loved a good discussion...on any topic. We'll always miss him.

A neighborhood friend of only a few years, George was to us an Officer and a Gentleman. It was a delight for us to have shared a few moments with him and enjoyed his bright smile and keen observations on a whole range of issues, including some humorous commentary during a round of golf.


Alan and Lin Dinkelacker posted on 11/28/21

George was our favorite marine and the hardest person to ever imagine as a marine. His bright smile and gentle manner stood out. The stories he told were humorous and engaging and had us entertained for hours. George's sock collection was equally memorable. His socks were legendary. As a golf partner, he was the best. The only time an expletive was uttered from his mouth was when he 4 putted. His sense of humor was always present. He will be sorely missed on the course, walking Nikki around the block, in the neighborhood, and as a friend to all. .


Joe and Janet Papetti posted on 11/28/21

George was a much loved member of our family. His fun loving nature, his ability to make you laugh and his smile will never be forgotten. And his breakfast smoothies were the best! We have wonderful memories but are so sad to have to say goodbye to such a special man! George you were the best. Rest In Peace until we meet again.


Cathie and Kevin Carpenter posted on 11/28/21

Our hearts are saddened at the loss of such a courageous and kind gentleman. We will remember George’s positive spirit, gentle soul and infectious smile; and most of all, we’ll remember the bond of love he and Diane shared together. May loving memories of him bring you peace, comfort, and strength.”

I had never been on a boat. His kindness in letting me know everything would be alright was calming. Our boat ride with my husband George was on Lake Norman. We docked for lunch and returned to their house. We thank you George and may you rest in peace


Barbara and Mike Nardella posted on 11/28/21

Words cannot express the sorrow we feel with George’s passing. Although we’ve known George for a short time, we considered him a friend and wonderful neighbor. A fond memory of George was seeing him on our morning walks as he was taking Nikki for a stroll. He always appreciated attention given to Nikki as we talked about our lives in Brunswick Forest. He was also a great storyteller- embellishing stories with salty expression! George was always a positive person. He never complained and soldiered through his illness bravely. His warm smile and great sense of humor will always be with us. May he Rest In Peace.

Our heartfelt condolences to Di and family. The Smiths were one of the first families to welcome us to the Cape Fear neighborhood, arriving with Di's delicious carrot cake muffins on our move-in day. We will miss seeing George's smiling face and pleasant conversation as we frequently passed him and his dog, Nikki, on the CFN Drive loop. Di, you are in our thoughts and prayers at this difficult time.

I’ll always remember his pearly white smile and his skilled coffee making. George being bothered by me pointing out he wore his belt upside down is a fun fond memory. (N) We were truly fortunate to meet George upon our move to NC. He had such a welcoming and engaging personality. George was a wonderful teller of tales. He would regale us with stories of his early life in hardscrabble Perth Amboy, courting his darling wife Diane, living a charmed life in the USMC, navigating the corporate executive life, owning a car wash, and his love of cars. (D) We loved and will miss George. He fought a good fight and may he Rest In Peace. Condolences to the family.

As many of our family know, I've been hurt very much by the passing of my father. There are many things left unsaid between us that needed to be said and I certainly wish that I could have had more time to be with him. I do have many fond memories of him growing up. Especially when we went fishing, joking around, and working on vehicles. My father was the best father he could be and I feel lucky he was mine, even though we did not always agree with everything. He encouraged me when I needed it and he chastised me in the same way. I loved him very much and I will miss him greatly, even though I know he will always be with me in my heart. My condolences go out to Ann in her time of need. When my mother, Evelyn (Delores)Brown Flynt, who was Dad's first wife of 34 years, and also the mother of my two sisters Pennie and Melanie, along with two other brothers, and one sister that didn't make it at birth, (she had mentioned several times if they had lived, all we needed was a maid and we could have been called the Flynt bunch),passed away in June of '93, I feel Ann helped to fill the void in my dad's heart and helped him to keep going strong till he passed away. She was always there when he needed her the most. My love also goes out to family and friends and to all those that knew my father well. May we all stand in tribute to my father's life and being the person that only he could be. WE ALL LOVE AND MISS YOU DAD!!!!!

I remember the day he pulled in the driveway of I will alwaysGrandma’s house in a really cool red covirtable with his sweetheart, Joan. I was in the third grade at the time and I looked at Joan and thought how pretty she was in that red convertible I will always love the memory of Uncle John as the loving steady soul I looked up to during my childhood and in my adult life.

My fond memories of Bobby was on the many fishing trips we took with the other phone employees. We were a "telephone family". We worked together and fished together. When Bobby and I "spot netted", we always took a coleman stove and fry pan so we could eat them fresh right out of the net!!

I am reminded of the "Good Old Days" when I think of Bobby. That would be, for us, the '50's. He had a 1950 Ford, and while most all our crowd had a car, we ended up in Bobby's at the end of Saturday nights, exchanging the day's events, listening to Gallenton Tenn radio "Randy's Record Shop" show, and guessing how fast he could get it up to, before it started missing. While I was in the class of '53, Bobby and Charlie let me join them at Jarman's Drug Store, 16th & Market, to study for exams. Yes, Bobby was a member of our "Good Old DAy's" group, and he will be missed by many. We will cherish our memories!

As a member of the Vestry at All Saints for six years, I was blessed to have known Jack and was impressed with his gentle, friendly nature and invaluable service he provided to the church. He was an integral part of All Saints and will leave a huge hole that will be hard to fill. We will miss him dearly.

Tim was a lifelong friend of Mike's. Scottie and I were roommates for a while. He was in our wedding. We all hung out together throughout our 20's and 30's. We lived in the same neighborhood for several years, and our boys played together. While we did not stay in touch very well when we moved to SC, Mike always considered him one of his best friends. We are brokenhearted over his passing.

I used to wartch “Old Coot Jackson” Saturdays on WCCB in the late 1970’s and early 80’s. I always wondered what happened to the character. I also saw him host the same type of show on channel 48 in Greensboro. Sorry to hear he passed away.

Tim was truly one of a kind. I first met Tim playing Little League baseball at Montrose Elementary where I was helping him warm up and I missed a ball and got a black eye for it. Tim was very upset about that but it was my fault. Then in high school he was always there if you needed a friend. Tim will be sorely missed by all that knew him. My condolences to the family and a reminder that he’s always with you.


Mike Wright posted on 11/13/21

Tim and I were best friends from 7th grade until I retired in 2002. We did everything together. I always loved him and I will never forget him. I'm sure he's playing golf in Heaven now. He was a good friend and a great person. He will be missed by everyone that knew him.

Jack and I were Theta Chi fraternity brothers at NC State. Jack and I had a lot in common. His wife, Martha, and my wife, Patti, were high school classmates in Raleigh. After college, we all continued to stay in contact and often visited each other, and our families would vacation together at Ocean Isle Beach for a week in the summers. Jack was always kind, courteous, and generous. He will be immensely missed. Not saying "goodbye" but "We'll see you later." May he RIP.

Jack will be greatly missed, especially by all his Muirfield neighbors. When we moved here 14 years ago, Jack made us feel right at home with his kindness and friendship. Jack’s golfing buddies will always remember that if someone had the need to take a mulligan, he would remind you that “it is always best to hit your second shot first”. Jack was a true gentleman.

I shall always remember the kindness of Jack Erdody when he and his wife Martha visited me at Saint Peter the Apostle Anglican Church in Kingsport Tennessee. I still cherish their gift to me, the handy pocket edition of the Prayer Book and Hymnal. Jack was such a faithful and encouraging member of the Body of Christ and called to be a saint and now he is receiving his inheritance from the Lord Jesus Christ.

Miss Barb was my neighbor until a few months ago, and a delightful friend whose smile I looked forward to every day. Night owls, we’d giggle in the late hours, outside enjoying the breezes, the stars, and the little possum that eves dropped on our sometimes scandalous conversations. When the pandemic brought stress and isolation, our visits (from 10 feet away) were the sunshine that chased away the chill. Her indomitable spirit was undimmed by her months in the hospital. She returned with lessons in strength, courage, and a daily demonstration that love is multiplied when shared. I am so sorry I didn’t hear in time to attend the service and offer my condolences to her children, and tell them how she glowed and shined when sharing the stories a mother shares. She was so enamored and proud of them both. I pray she is rejoicing now, reunited with her favorite puppers, and keeping Heaven bright and full of laughter until we can see her again.

Maury was part of my family growing up. He spent at least one Christmas Eve night with us, and many more treasured times. He and I had talked several times over the last year and a half or so, and he was still Maury. If you knew Maury, you know exactly what that means. He was happy, funny and always making me laugh. He could turn humor on a dime. Anything in the world that would come up, Maury could make funny. That is a special gift! If you ever asked someone if they knew him, a smile would immediately come to their face. Then, typically, a great and funny Maury story! I will always remember Maury with a smile on my face. What a wonderful thing to be said about somebody, "he always made me smile." A conversation with him always put you in a better mood than you had been. Even though, I now have tears, when God wipes those away, that is how I will remember Maury. He was one of those people that processed things on a deeper level than, perhaps a casual acquaintance might have ever seen. To all of his family: I know he loved you all. You would always come up in between the funny "Mauryisms" when we would go a little deeper. May each of you find comfort in God's peace and rest.

My heart and soul was so deeply saddened to hear of Ms. Mary's passing. She was the sweetest, friendliest, and most vibrant person I've ever met. Her smile and laughter would light up a room. She made it impossible to be upset or down in the dumps when she was around. Her love for Jesus, love of life and family (including Penny) always shined through. A truly rare and special gem she was! I'm so very sorry for your loss. God go with you all. "Our loss is Heavens gain".

I had known Dennis since the early 80's when he and his first wife were building their first business - Lotions and Potions in Tempe, Az. We went on to become good friends, eventually best friends. Spent a lot of time together over the years and got to know his parents very well. Spent many a wonderful holiday at their house in Scottsdale. Dennis was my best man at my wedding in 1990 and was a big influence in my life until he left Arizona in the early 2000's. We lost touch at that time and never really reconnected. I just found out of his passing and am totally rocked. I miss you friend and will forever regret not being able to talk to you before you passed. Say hi to your mom and dad for me. I loved them like a second family.

I love remembering those mornings before work when the 3 of us would run at The Cape. You would say, "pick up your feet when you run, Girls, kick your butts!", and Kathy and I would watch you run off into the sunrise kicking your butt with your heels as you went. Kathy and I shuffled our own course and eventually met back at the house for shower and breakfast and off to work for another truly rewarding day of seeing patients at Holub Chiropractic Clinic.

Dear Michael and Karen and Family, as well as Marianne and family, I was truly saddened, yesterday when I found out that our cousin Donald had passed away. Although I did not know him as well, as I know Michael (because obviously Michael and I are closer in age). He is fondly remembered within our family. I know for my sister Dorothy, Donald and her were very close in age and shared a tremendous amount of past memories growing up. It has been a tough year for our family as so many have passed from this life to the next (Linda, Judy & Kent). My condolences to you all, and I am truly sorry, and will continue to pray for you all, in the days, weeks and months ahead. This time of year is tough enough as it is!! Much love being sent from Massachusetts to you all.

My condolences to Rhonda’s husband, family and friends. I received a Facebook reminder today about Rhonda‘s birthday, and found out that she had recently passed away. Very sad news. We were friends in the late 1970’s as students in the Georgetown University Legal Assistant, and we lived near each other in Arlington, Virginia, so we hung out as both classmates and friends. She was so smart, kind and fun - a good friend, and we helped each other as we juggled full time jobs, paralegal classes at night and lots of time in the law library. It is obvious from watching her funeral service video and reading the comments that she touched many lives with her goodness and generosity. I am not surprised. I am sorry for her final illness, but it sounds like she handled it with Grace. I will make a donation to the Alzheimer’s Association in her honor today - on her birthday. May her soul be rewarded for a life very well lived. My condolences.

He was the most intelligent, understanding, and nonjudgmental man I had ever met. Even through bad times his presence alone made everything okay. God took one of the good ones. I’m going to miss his sweet touch, our daily conversations, and his wisdom. I called him my “google”. I still can’t believe he’s gone. He truly took a piece of my heart when he passed and he will never be forgotten. I love you. Rest In Peace. Love always, your Ruca

If you read the Book of Ruth in the Bible, you will have an idea of the relationship Barbara and I had. This passage, in particular, comes to mind: "Intreat me not to leave thee, or to return from following after thee: for whither thou goest, I will go...the Lord do so to me, and more also, if ought but death part thee and me." I was Barbara's caregiver for nine months, but it seemed we had known each other forever. We had a lot in common such as having our family roots in Maryland. To say Oct 23rd was one of the worst days of my life would be an understatement. I know the good Lord will mend the broken pieces of her family's hearts in due time. Rest well, dear Barbara, until we meet again at Jesus' feet.

Francine was probably the most kindest person I have ever met. I loved her visitors book she kept at home. If you have ever been to her home, you signed that book. I truly wish I had more time with her. Francine will be missed.

George was so very gracious. A perfect gentleman. He was a great aviator and Captain. He gave me an unusual moment of tremendous kindness a few years ago that I cannot now, repay. Blessings and peace to, you, his family.

My memories of Captain Lancaster go way back to our Piedmont days. As a commuter in ILM, George got me home many nights on that last flight out of CLT - often standing with some of our other PI family, leaning over his shoulder in the grateful he never left any of us behind. I never tired of seeing him at the old airport, with one of his incredible war planes. He was FUN!!! When I think of our ILM Boys, he is at the top of the list of the GREATS. He'll be missed so much but always remembered by each of us that had the pleasure of knowing him and flying with him. My prayers to all of his family and friends.

George was one of the first Captains I flew with after joining Piedmont Airlines. He was very gracious, welcoming me to the Airline. He was always very enjoyable to fly with. My prayers go out to the family. Rest in peace, old friend.

My sister was the most compassionate person I have ever met. Whether it was talking to you on the phone for hours or giving you what ever you needed, she was there for you, she loved helping people. Her family and friends were very important to her as well as her many cats. She became the "crazy cat lady" and was very proud when her nephews called her "Crazy Aunt Mary". She lived up to those two titles well. The worlds loss is heavens gain, I will miss you until we meet again Sis. Be at peace, know you were loved, God Bless You...

I met Francine 35 yrs ago as a young mother at church. She loved me in Christ-like fashion from the get-go. Both New Yorkers, both converts to the Church of Jesus Christ of LDS , wives, &moms. We hit it off and she became one of my choicest life friends& mentors. Her unshakeable testimony, her giving compassionate heart, unfailing service, her nonjudgmental care& acceptance of others, her boundless energy, her words of wisdom gained from a life full of experience, her perseverance& resilience in the face of trajedy, pain, sorrow or failing health & her positivity along with her example & love of family are some of the things which I carry in my mind& heart until that day I see her again . I love her& will miss her for a time ..Be well in His Presence my dear cherished friend & loved sister in the Gospel .. Peace to you Bob . She will ever be about you her beloved husband. Sending our love to you.

Francine was the quintessential mother and friend - kind, generous, loving and always there to help anyone who needed it. And even though we lost contact in later years, she remained in my heart and I will never forget her. I send my love to Bob and the children with my deepest condolences as she now joins Diana in what I know will be the most joyful reunion in Heaven. May you all be comforted in the knowledge that you were the loves of her life. God Bless You All. ❤

Rhonda was truly a women of valor. Her willingness to give of herself in so many different ways, was an example to all of us. There was no job, too big or small, that Rhonda was not willing to take on. May her memory be for a blessing.

I recall walking the trails at Halyburton Park with Rhonda and llearning more about her earlier life as we walked and talked at a Temple of Israel Walk and Brunch. She was always willing to volunteer and enthusiastically one of the first to sign up for activities. My condolences to Don and family and friends.

For the family and friends of Jean....I loved visiting with her during our various volunteer activities at Thalian and at Wilmington Airport. I loved her spunk as well as her smarts, kindness and respect for all. I'm sure the good Lord is taking extra special care of her now!!

It took me a while, to get on here and do this. Your death left me distraught, not because I knew you for years or because we were great friends.... But because you, such a genuine, sincere, true, real soul, with a heart so sweet and giving, deserved nothing less than a long, happy, beautiful life . To you, I just want to thank you. I wonder if you knew how truly special you were to so many. Did you know, just by being you, so many, learned to believe in themselves and heal. I'll never, ever forget you or our chats. To your family, I am so, so sorry for your loss. I lost my daughter 2 years ago, so I know the pain, and no one deserves to feel such pain. You must all be amazing beings, because you certainly created one of the most amazing beings I've ever known. I promise to keep you all in my thoughts and prayers

The first time we met I asked Tom when was the best time to meet and he said “No better time than the present” which at that time it was around 8pm at night. He was such a good and caring guy who always made time to talk etc at his office or out to eat at a restaurant. He will be missed!
