Gene Alvin Proctor

October 4, 81, 

Gene Alvin Proctor, 81, passed away on Thursday at Duke University Medical Center in Durham.

Gene was born in Wilson County, one of nine children, to the late Alvin Anderson Proctor and Florence Hawley Proctor. He retired from E.I. DuPont in Kinston after over 30 years of service. Gene was a member of Hood Swamp Friends Meeting.

Gene was a true sportsman, most comfortable outdoors, on the water or in the woods. He always loved to go fishing and nothing gave him more pleasure than to feel the tug of a fish on his line. Above all, he loved spending time with his family and friends. He will be missed.

The family will receive friends on Monday, October 8, 2018 from 10:00 – 11:30 a.m. at Seymour Funeral Home followed by a service to celebrate Gene’s life at 11:30 a.m. in the chapel with Rev. Lee Lane officiating. Interment will be in Wayne Memorial Park.

Gene is survived by his wife of 32 years, Theodosia Smith Proctor; son, Al Proctor and wife Stephanie of Wilson; step-son, Al Laws and wife Denise of Goldsboro; grandchildren, Taylor Baker and husband Hunter, Brandon Proctor and fiancée Emily Nguyen, Jennifer King and Josh Laws; and his great-granddaughter, Hannah Goodson. He is also survived by his brothers, Elton Lee Proctor and wife Lou Ann, Lennis Proctor and wife Edna and Bobby Proctor and wife Mary Lou; sister, Linda Crumpler; and several nieces and nephews he loved very much.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his sisters, Josephine Jones and Earlene Ferrell and brothers, Reece Proctor and Rudolph Proctor.

Flowers are welcome or memorials may be made to Hood Swamp Friends Meeting, in care of Dan Smith, 250 Hood Swamp Road, Goldsboro, NC 27534.
