Obituary for Earl Massey

WEAVERVILLE – Earl Massey, 84, passed away peacefully on Thursday, January 18th at Memorial Mission Hospital while surrounded by his family. Earl was a native of Madison County and was the son of the late Ishmael and Nellie Massey. He was a Veteran of the US Army, where he served in the Korean Conflict. Earl was a member of Mt. Bethel Freewill Baptist Church in Weaverville.
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his granddaughter, Amanda Lynne Massey; brother, Charles Massey; and special aunt, Gladys Rector.

Earl took great pride in being raised in the Big Pine Community. He had a passion for the mountains and he loved working outdoors. Earl retired after 30 years as a motor grader operator for NC Department of Transportation. Aside from his employment, he worked tirelessly serving others. Whether it be mowing, planting, pushing snow, visiting the hospitals and nursing homes, he was always there to help.
