January 1, 2021, 77, Goldsboro

Cleaford Earl Weeks Jr., 77, went to be with his Lord on Friday, January 1, 2021.

Earl was born in Goldsboro, NC on October 12, 1943 to the late Cleaford Earl Weeks Sr. and Nell Porter Weeks. He worked in the construction industry as a skilled electrical tradesman for many years. Earl was devoted to his wife of 57 years, committed to his family and loved by all that knew him.

Earl was known for his quiet demeanor; one for few words yet a faithful husband and providing father to five boys that loved to pull mischief pranks on their dad.

A private graveside service to celebrate Earl’s life, officiated by Pastor Bill Rose and Pastor Bailey Weeks (Earl’s grandson), will be held on Tuesday, January 5, 2021 at Evergreen Memorial Cemetery in Princeton. The family respectfully requests for those attending the service to wear a face covering and practice social distancing measures.

Earl is survived by his wife, Carolyn Weeks and his sons and their spouses: Steve Weeks and wife, Amy, Rick and wife Beverly, Frankie and wife Jennifer; his grandchildren Ivey, Anna, Amber, Bailey, Bentley, Tyler and Macy Weeks.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his sons: Edward (Eddie) Earl Weeks and James (Jim) Edgar Weeks.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be given in Earl’s memory to The First Pentecostal Church, 1100 The First Church Rd, Goldsboro, NC 27534.

The family would like to extend their heartfelt gratitude to Pat Anderson for her exceptional care of Earl over the past few years.
