Harvey “Doyle” Seymour, 72, passed away at his home Monday evening, October 15, 2018. A native of Pitt County, NC, he was born January 11, 1946, the son of the late Harvey Lee and Mary Dell Hurst Seymour.
He is survived by his wife of more than 48 years, Lynda Davis Seymour; one sister, Lois Newell of Florida; two nephews, Clark Newell, Jr. and Ryan Newell, both of Virginia; and special cousins Phyllis Farmer of Charlotte, Ruby Henderson of Raleigh and Kenneth Hurst of Robersonville, NC.
Mr. Seymour was a graduate of East Carolina University. He served his country honorably as a 1st Lieutenant in the United States Army. He had a career as an engineer and retired from AMP, Inc. (now Tyco, International), an electronics company, after 26 years of service. He also served as an auxiliary officer with the Winston-Salem Police Dept. But his greatest service was to glorify his Lord by years of serving as a Bible Teacher in various churches, through his active membership in the Christian Business Men’s Connection, and through his current membership at Eaton Baptist Church.
A Celebration of Life Service will be conducted at 2:00 PM Friday, October 19, from Eaton Baptist Church officiated by Dr. David Gilbreath. The family will receive friends one hour prior to the time of service at the church. Interment will follow in the church cemetery with Military Honors to be accorded by the VFW Memorial Honor Guard and the NC National Guard Honors Team.
In lieu of flowers, memorials should be directed to Eaton Baptist Church-Parking Lot Fund, 430 Eaton Church Rd., Mocksville, NC 27028.
