Obituary

Harvey Benjamin Horrell, 69, of Rocky Point passed gently from his earthly life on Tuesday, January 9, 2018 at Lower Cape Fear Hospice Care Center.

He was born July 22, 1948 in Bladen County, one of seven children born to Lawerence McCrae Horrell and Sadie Bell Hudson Horrell. Also remembered are his sisters, Hazel Elizabeth H. Williams, Janice Elizabeth H. Aaron, and Mary Catherine H. Fowler; brother, Lawerence McCrae Horrell, Jr., all who preceded Harvey in death.

Harvey is survived by his beloved wife of 49 years, Debbie Horrell; son, Ben Horrell (Kim Guinan); daughter, Tracie Rebekah Horrell (Dwayne Callais); grandchildren, Kimberly Pigford, Tiffany Pigford, Makayla Horrell, Thomas Tanner, Caitlyn Tanner, Brianna Tanner, and Anthony Tanner; sisters, Kathleen Duncan and Joann Hodge; and many nieces, nephews and friends.

In years past when Harvey was a young man he enjoyed woodworking as a hobby. He was an accomplished mechanic and was excellent at repairing cars. As Harvey grew older his health began declining, but he always continued to be thankful and praise the Lord for his many blessings. His Lord and his family were most important in Harvey’s life. Cherished memories of Harvey will remain in our hearts.
