Obituary: Paul Morris Plummer Sr.


Paul Morris Plummer Sr. peacefully left this life on Friday, June 24, surrounded by family. Born Dec. 14, 1927 in Guilford County, N.C., to Mr. and Mrs. Stacy Frank Plummer, he moved to the White Cross community in 1939 with his parents and six brothers and sisters. Mr. Plummer attended Chapel Hill High School and served in the U.S. Army in World War II.

On Dec. 24, 1948, he married the love of his life, Miss Dixie Mae Brockwell, and together they had four sons and four daughters. Surviving are his wife, Dixie; son Stacy Plummer and wife, Ann; daughter Carol and husband, David Gottlieb; daughter Miriam and husband, David Apple; son Paul Morris Plummer Jr. and wife, Phyllis; daughter Betsi Harris and husband, Geoff; son Larry David Plummer; son Michael Plummer and girlfriend, Tracy; daughter Jakki Plummer; 13 grandchildren; and seven great-grandchildren. He was predeceased by his brothers, Billy and Frank; sisters, Ella Mae, Yvonne, Dillya, Jewel and Octavia; and grandchildren Bryan and Adam.

Mr. Plummer was a wonderful father and husband and was loved by all who knew him. He worked almost his entire life as a master carpenter to raise his eight children, who will miss him dearly. His passion for life and integrity above all else served as a guiding light for his family and will continue to in the years ahead.

Funeral services are planned for 11 a.m. Thursday, June 30 at Antioch Baptist Church in White Cross. The family will receive friends at the church after the service. A special thanks to Meadowlands Hospice for their wonderful care and support.
