Obituary for Mearl Carson Boone

Mearl C. Boone
July 21, 1933 - July 18, 2019

Kinston-Mearl Carson Boone, 85, passed away Thursday, July 18, 2019 at the North Carolina State Veterans Home. Mearl was born July 21, 1933 in Greene County to the late Dempsey Mearl Boone and Elsie Fields Boone.

Mearl proudly served his country in the United States Air Force during the Korean War. Mearl later embarked on a career as a mechanical craftsman with E.I. Dupont and retired following 34 years of service.

Mearl dedicated himself to his family. Mearl’s happiest moments were when he was surrounded by his family. A visit from the grandchildren made for the perfect day. Mearl had an adventurous side also. He always looked forward to trips to the NC State Fair or any amusement park.

His engineering background served him well at home. He had the ability to figure things out and there was nothing he couldn’t fix. Tinkering brought much enjoyment to Mearl.

Mearl took great pride in being a simple man. He didn’t need a big crowd and relished his alone time. He was an avid reader and soaked in everything he read. Breakfast at Hardee’s was a daily ritual. Mearl could often be found at the Piggly-Wiggly Deli or Kings savoring a good meal.

Graveside services will be held Tuesday, July 23, 2019 at 10 a.m. at Pinelawn Memorial Park.

Mearl is survived by a daughter, Debbie Kimble and husband, Gary; three grandchildren, Shelly Gurganus and husband, Ryan, Kayla Kimble, Jason McDaniel and wife, Heather; nine great-grandchildren, Kylie, Collin, Blayden, Brixley, Caden, Alexa, Gavin, Gage and Elias; and Mearl’s longtime companion, Faye Haddock. In addition to his parents, Mearl was preceded in death by a daughter, Linda B. McDaniel; three brothers, Alvis Boone, James Boone and Lawrence Boone; and a sister, Ina Mae Humphrey.

Family and friends will be received Monday from 6-8 p.m. at Rouse Funeral Home, La Grange. Online condolences may be expressed at www.rousefh.com. Memorials may be made to the North Carolina State Veterans Home, 2150 Hull Road, Kinston, NC 28504. Arrangements are entrusted to Rouse Funeral Home, La Grange.
