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.

We have lost another friend and classmate who will be dearly missed and fondly remembered. He put up a good fight and I know the Lord is waiting for him.

I've known Doyle since Jr. High School. We knocked around some in high school (there is a corvette dashboard somewhere with my finger prints mashed into it) but mostly after service and going thru ECU. We were in the same department and did student teaching in Vanceboro. He married Linda; one of the best moves he could ever have made; Brenda and I enjoyed our get togethers with them. Doyle was truly devoted to Jesus Christ. In a letter several months ago I asked Doyle if he had asked the question "Why Me?" and his reply was "Why not me"? He wasn't afraid to die. RIP... your Brother in Christ.

Heartfelt sympathy in Doyle's passing and comfort in his homegoing. There has never been anyone who "to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord" more aptly applies. Doyle lived his faith, and he is sure to hear, "Well done, good and faithful servant."

While there is sadness in the hearts of those who knew and loved Doyle, as he will be greatly missed, I know with certainty that his promotion from temporal life to life eternal was welcomed with great rejoicing in the presence of the angels. I'm confident he was welcomed with the words - "Well done thou good and faithful servant."
Doyle was one of the greatest bible teachers I've had the privilege of sitting under. It was an honor to know him.

I have to ditto the previous remarks of others from Doyle's J. H. Rose 1964 grad. class. Cynthia and I add our heart felt condolences to Lynda and all of Doyles family.

It has been a pleasure to know Doyle and especially to read his letters to the editor. Will miss them

I was so sorry to learn of the passing of Doyle. As a fellow employee at AMP Inc., Doyle was always a true professional. His mild manner and intellectual approach to issues were a hallmark to his success. He truly treated all, he came in contact, with respect and honesty.

Doyle was in the 1964 graduating class with me, but it sounds as if I missed out on the most recent highlights of his Christian life. It's just been wonderful reading all the comments made about him. Just knowing he is rejoicing with Jesus Christ. my sympathy goes out to his wife and family.

Dear Lynda,
Many years have gone by since we have seen each other, but many fond memories remain. We always enjoyed visiting with the two of you. May you know the comfort of our Lord Jesus Christ at this time and through the years ahead. Blessings
