Mr. William Amos “Tiny” Haddock, 58, a Winterville resident, passed away on Monday, March 15, 2010, at PCMH in the Heart Institute.
The funeral will be conducted on Friday at 2 p.m. in the Wilkerson Funeral Chapel. Burial will follow in Pinewood Memorial Park.
A native and lifelong resident of Pitt County, William was a 1971 graduate of D. H. Conley High School. For more than 40 years, he co-owned and operated Haddock’s Grocery until his health declined. He was a member of Rose Hill Free Will Baptist Church.
Most who knew William knew him as “Tiny.” He had a tremendous sense of humor and will be remembered for his determination and strong will to overcome his declining health. He was an avid Carolina basketball fan and enjoyed golf, hunting and fishing. Most important to him though was his interest in sharing his faith, despite the current status of his health. He also enjoyed every precious moment with each of his grandchildren. He was a loving husband, father and grandfather who adored his family.
Mr. Haddock was preceded in death by his parents and granddaughter, Azure Chappell.
He is survived by his wife of 32 years, Carolyn Grissom Haddock; daughter, Regina S. Chappell and husband, Fent, of Ayden; stepdaughter, Rhonda F. Mading and husband, George, of King George, VA; stepson, Milton “Chick” Keeter and wife, Virginia, of Herndon, VA; grandchildren, Hugh Chappell, of Ayden, Ciara and Madison Mading, both of King George, VA, William “Tyler” Keeter and Cheyenne Keeter, both of Herndon, VA; sister, Alma Rose Haddock, of Winterville; niece, Tneisha Haddock, of Durham; and beloved pet and companion, Gypsy.
The family will receive friends Thursday from 6 to 8 p.m. at Wilkerson Funeral Home.
