May 18, 85,
Heaven gained another angel recently; James Brogden passed away at Kitty Atkins Hospice Center on May 18, 2020. His last days were spent surrounded by family until he had to be moved from a family setting to a Hospice facility. Abby Hargett and Rachel Lutz were able to be by his side until the end. James was born in Smithfield, NC and lived most of his life in Goldsboro, NC. James was a strong, kind, loving man who had a positive impact on anyone he came in contact with. James never allowed his disability to keep him from living life how he wanted to. He got himself a job in maintenance for Wayne county, and retired after 30 years of faithful service.
James is survived by the family he adopted: Abby Hargett of Goldsboro, NC, Aaron Cake of Florida, Tonya Gill, Corey Williams, William Blackmon, Ian Gill, Dee Ingram, Rachael Lutz of Goldsboro, NC; Kimberly and Zowie Bennett of Myrtle Beach, SC, Parker Croom of Wilmington, NC; Donnie, Keida, and Liam Gill of Carthage, NC, Tawanda Smith of Goldsboro, NC and Karen Wall of Goldsboro, NC.
Funeral services will be held Thursday at 8:00 pm at Shumate-Faulk Funeral Home with Rev. Rodney Bunch officiating. The family will visit with close friends at 7:00 pm on Thursday and following the service.
