August 10, 2021, 76, Goldsboro –
Charles Edward Massengill, 76, passed away on Tuesday, August 10, 2021 at his home surrounded by his family.
Charles was born in Johnston County on March 16, 1945 to the late Talmadge and Lula Massengill. He was a valued employee of Bell South and retired as a technician after 30 years of service. Charles served in the North Carolina National Guard.
Charles was a member of Pleasant Grove Original Free Will Baptist Church in Pikeville. He was a true sportsman, most comfortable outdoors. Charles was an avid hunter of big and small game and was an avid fisherman. Being by the water with his fishing buddies, Cedric Sullivan and J.E. Bass is where Charles felt most comfortable. Nothing would excite him more than feeling the tug on the other end of his fishing line, hoping the next fish was bigger than the last.
The family will receive friends Friday, August 13, 2021, from 6:30 until 8:00 PM at Seymour Funeral Home followed by a service to celebrate Charlie’s life at 8:00 PM in the chapel with Rev. Billy Nowell officiating. Interment will be at 10:00 AM on Saturday, August 14, 2021 in Evergreen Memorial Cemetery with military honors.
Charles is survived by his wife, Frances Stroud Massengill; son, Frank Sauls and wife Kristie; grandchildren, Kristen Nicole Sauls, John Norton and Ryan Norton; and sisters, Jackie Daughtry and Janie Best and husband Steve, sisters-in-law, Ann Smith and husband Ken and Darlene Stroud and husband Hank; and several nieces and nephews.
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his wife, Jenny Aycock Massengill.
In lieu of flowers, a memorial may be given in his memory to the Baptist Children’s Home, P.O. Box 338, Thomasville, NC 27361.
