William Albert Gurganious, 85, of Currie passed gently from his earthly life on Saturday, January 27, 2018 at Pender Memorial Hospital.
He was born February 14, 1932 in Pender County, the seventh child of fourteen children born to Winston Allen and Vancey Vernell Norris Gurganious. Also lovingly remembered is his wife, Margaret Gurganious; sisters, Alice McArtan, Ruth Blackman, Erma Fender, Penny Dix, Nettie Speir, Nina Lee and Ruby Johnson; brothers, Ottis Gurganious, Edward Gurganious and Dallas Gurganious, all who preceded Albert in death.
Albert’s survivors include his brother, Franklin Gurganious (Betty); sisters, Hilda Smith and Vancey Dyson; many nieces and nephews.
Albert loved nothing more than being outdoors in all of God’s bountiful nature while fishing and hunting. He was a good husband to his wife, Margaret and brother to all of his siblings. A family is a patchwork of love and the Gurganious family is a perfect example.
The family will receive friends at 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday, January 31, 2018 at Shiloh Baptist Church with service beginning at 11:00 a.m. The Rev. Gardner Eakins will conduct the service. Burial will follow in Gurganious Cemetery.

Uncle Bill was one of my Mother's older brothers. Uncle Bill gained his angel wings and took his flight to heaven for a much needed rest. I believe like a pastor once said that it was graduation dayI do believe
that if Uncle Bill come back he would not. Uncle Bill would say it is beautiful here, live your life for God and come and join me. The Supper is almost ready, I will dining with Jesus tonight. RIP Uncle Bill until we meet again on the other side, go and take your rest.

Uncle Bill was one of my mothers older brothers. He will be missed by all. As we all get older it is becoming a regular thing to see our elders in the family pass on. It is apart of the human cycle. May God continue to bless the Gurganious family. We continue to see our aunts and uncles pass to a better life and we hate to see them go but forget they are going to a far better place. Rest In Peace Uncle Bill!
