Wilson Hale Obituary

Mr. Wilson Frank Hale, age 85 of Tarboro, NC, departed from this earth to his Heavenly home on January 19th, 2024. He was surrounded by his loving family at home.

He was born in Scotland Neck on September 12th, 1938, and joined the Navy in 1956. After completing his service, he lived in Portsmouth VA before moving to Tarboro and beginning a career at Long Manufacturing. Frank was a loyal employee, working over 40 years before retiring. After a short stint of retirement, he found it was not for him and took a job at B & G Fitness Center, until he was hired to drive the Shuttle at Doug Henry Ford. Frank loved this job, because he loved meeting people and if you needed a ride from the Dealership, then you had a conversation with Frank. In which he probably told you about his family. He loved his family and was a devoted Father, Grandfather, Great Grandfather and Brother. Frank loved fishing and Nascar racing. He loved his friends, church family and his Pastor, Johnny Hendricks.
