William Horace Rackley, age 80, of Wallace left this earthly life for his eternal rest on Monday, December 25, 2017.
He was born on February 18, 1937 in New Hanover County and was the son of the late John William and Verdie DeBose Rackley. He was also predeceased by his brother, Wayne Rackley, sister, Alene Fender and Doris Rackley.
Surviving is his devoted wife of 58 years, Christine Dail Rackley of the home; his daughters, Anita Charlene Jones (Bo) and Joyce Rackley; three grandchildren; one great grandchild; sister, Hilda Wells and numerous nieces, nephews and friends.
Horace was a good husband and caring father, grandfather and brother. He worked hard and was a good provider for his family whom he loved dearly. Being an avid football fan, Horace loved and supported the "Bulldogs". He enjoyed fishing and being outside in God's beautiful nature. Horace will surely be missed but cherished memories will forever live in the hearts of those who knew and loved him.
Graveside service will be held at 2:00pm on Wednesday, December 27, 2017 at Rockfish Memorial Cemetery in Wallace with The Reverend Philip Eakins officiating.

Dear Rackley Family,
I am so sorry to have read of your loss; please accept my sincere condolences. Something that I have personally found to be of great comfort are the thoughts expressed at John 5:28, 29 as well as Revelation 21:4. In these verses, we find a wonderful hope for the future of being reunited with our loved ones upon the earth the way it was originally intended--free from sickness, suffering, and death. Knowing this has comforted me greatly and it is my sincere hope that these thoughts comfort your family as well. Again I am so sorry for your loss.
