The News & Observer (Sunday) - - Obituaries -

DURHAM: Eu­gene “Vic” Vic­tor Veasey, 79, went home to spend eter­nity with his Lord and Sav­ior Je­sus Christ on Fri­day, Fe­bru­ary 7, 2020 where his Home­com­ing was joy­fully wel­comed by many friends and fam­ily.

He was born in Durham, NC to the late Joseph Austin Veasey and Sarah Grace Um­stead Veasey. In ad­di­tion to his par­ents, Mr. Veasey was also pre­de­ceased by his brother, Joseph Austin Veasey Jr.

Mr. Veasey is sur­vived by his wife, Sylvia Veasey who he faith­fully loved and cher­ished over their 46 years of mar­riage; and by his two sons and daugh­ters-in-law, Jay and Jenny Veasey, Matthew and Jes­sica Veasey, and four sweet grand­chil­dren, Ja­cob Austin Veasey, Jor­dyn Grace Veasey, Tyler Austin Veasey and Blake Ed­ward Veasey.

Mr. Veasey was a re­tired Life In­sur­ance Agent where he served clients in Durham for many years, work­ing hard to pro­vide and care for his fam­ily. His Chris­tian val­ues in­flu­enced the way he served his clients, al­ways with in­tegrity and com­pas­sion through­out his ca­reer. He was a grad­u­ate of North­ern Durham High School and served in the Army Na­tional Guard for six years. He was a long-time mem­ber at both North­gate Chapel and Gorman Bap­tist Church in Durham where he en­joyed the preach­ing of God’s Word and singing great hymns of the Chris­tian faith. Most of all, he en­joyed spend­ing time with his fam­ily. Vic was a kind, self­less in­di­vid­ual, a true man of God who will be missed dearly un­til we see him again in Heaven.

The fam­ily will re­ceive friends from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. on Mon­day, Fe­bru­ary 10th at Cle­ments Fu­neral Home in Durham. A fu­neral ser­vice will be held at 11 a.m. on Tues­day, Fe­bru­ary 11th at Cle­ments Fu­neral Chapel in Durham with Steve Decker, his brother-in­law, of­fi­ci­at­ing. Burial will fol­low the ser­vices in Oak Grove Me­mo­rial Gar­dens.

“I have fought the good fight, I have fin­ished the race, I have kept the faith” 2 Ti­mothy 4:7
