Albert Harrelson

December 9, 1936 ~ June 5, 2022 (age 85)

Obituary

Albert Harrelson, of Lillington, NC, was a farmer, welder, hunter, fisherman, and naturalist. Being one of 14 children, he did not finish high school because of the demands of the farm and family, but he was a lifetime student, learning with the curiosity and intelligence of a scholar. He had a front row seat to God's creation and natural laws every day, with his boots in the dirt and his head in the sun.

It was during his lifelong pursuit of farming that he became injured on his tractor and passed away one-week later June 5th. His memory and legacy will be carried on by his wife of 60 years, Joyce Harrelson, and four children: Tammy and her husband Scotty Scarborough, Brenda and her husband Jimmy Coats, Barbie and her husband Marty Taylor, Chad and his wife Christine Harrelson, nine grandchildren and four great grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his father and mother, Judd and Ruby Harrelson of Elizabethtown, NC, and his 13 siblings.

Friends are welcome to pay their respects to Mr. Harrelson on Thursday, June 9 from 2:30PM to 3:45PM at Memorial Baptist Church in Buies Creek. A celebration of life service will be held following the visitation at 4pm, at Memorial Baptist Church in Buies Creek. 

Memorial contributions may be made to Valor & Honor Outdoors at P. O. Box 124, Edenton, NC 27932.
