He worked as the produce manager with Harris Teeter, retiring after many years of dedicated service. He was a longtime faithful member of the Peele’s Chapel Wesleyan Church.

Locklear of Laurinburg, Peggy Smith of Hesperia, Calif., and Faye Warren and husband Bill of Greer, S.C., seven grandchildren: Samantha Jo Montgomery, Justin Everette Herndon, Susie Rachelle Vacheresse, Ashley Clark, Austin Webster, Dylan Webster, and Jacob Webster, great-grandson Benjamin Carter Hailey, many nieces and nephews, and a host of family and friends.
