Obituary

“To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven;

A time to be born and a time to die; a time to plant and a time to pluck up that which is planted;

a time to kill and a time to heal; a time to break down and a time to build up”

~ Ecclesiastes 31:1-3

 

A Time to Be Born: (Ecclesiastes 3:2)

     Alonzo Clemento Lassiter, was born on Saturday, March 9, 1940 in Conway (Northampton County), North Carolina to the parentage of the late Ernest and Willie Blanche Lassiter.

A Time to be Trained: (Proverbs 22:6)

     ‘Pete’, as he was affectionately called by his family and friends, was educated in the Northampton County Public School System; graduating from Willis Hare High School, Pendleton, North Carolina - Class of 1959.

A Time to Serve and Work: (Proverbs 11:25)

     After graduating from high school, ‘Pete’ enlisted in the United States Navy, where he served his country from June 1964 to May 1966, before being Honorably Discharged. During his time of servitude, he was awarded the National Defense Service Medal.

A Time to be Saved: (Corinthians 6:2)

     Early in life, ‘Pete’ was baptized and united in fellowship with First Baptist Church Conway, North Carolina. In later years, he accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior.

A Time to Die: (Ecclesiastes 3:2)

     Life is but a stopping place, A pause in what’s to be, A resting place along the road, to sweet eternity. We all have different journeys, Different paths along the way, We all were meant to learn some things, but never meant to stay… Our destination is a place, Far greater than we know. For some the journey is quicker, For some the journey’s slow. And when the journey finally ends, We’ll claim a great reward, And find an everlasting peace, Together with the Lord. On Friday, May 7, 2021; while in the care of Southside Regional Medical Center, Petersburg, Virginia, our dear loved one, answered God’s solemn call from earthly labor unto reward. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by: a sister, Gloria Marie Bigelow and one brother, James Ivory Lassiter.

A Time to Cherish Memories: (Ecclesiastes 3:5)

We who remain are struck by the pain of death, but satisfied with the promise made by God, that He would wipe all tears from our eyes are: one sister, Effie Lassiter Stewart of Stewartsville, New Jersey; one brother, Eugene Lassiter (Dorothy) of Conway, North Carolina; one brother-in-law, June Bigelow of East Orange, New Jersey; a special niece, Dawn Nicole Sheard of Nazareth, Pennsylvania; god-daughter, Jannifer Lassiter of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; brothers-at-heart, Reginald Flythe of Raleigh, North Carolina and Cecil Warren of Conway, North Carolina; a devoted companion, Marion Mizell of Conway, North Carolina; children-at-heart, Lawrence and Sharita Womack; grandchildren-at-heart, Isaac, Caleb and Mariam Womack all of Brooklyn, New York; a host of other loving nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
