Louis Devone Pope, age 87, passed away peacefully at home on Sunday, April 15th. He was born October 3, 1930 in Goldsboro, North Carolina. He served a tour in the U.S. Navy, followed by 19 years in the U.S. Army, serving overseas in Korea, Germany, France, and Viet Nam (1971-72). During his career, Louis worked as an Engineer Equipment Repairman and was a champion sharpshooter as a member of the U.S. Army Pistol Team. He retired from military service as a Staff Sergeant in 1973 and went on to serve in the Civil Service for another 20 years.

Louis loved fishing and shrimping at the beach with his friends and telling stories about the adventures of his youth delivering fish on an old Harley for the local fish market, riding his horse Little Man, and secretly courting his future wife Peggy. He enjoyed tinkering around in his shop, watching old John Wayne westerns, and having pig pickings for his family and friends.

Louis was preceded in death by his parents, Owen and Anna Pope, brothers Hugh, Owen Jr., Mac, and James, and his beloved wife, Peggy Pope. He is survived by his children, Theresa Pope Long and her husband Tim of the home, Roger Pope and his wife Margaret of Fayetteville, and David Curtis Pope and his wife Nina of Parkton, his 12 grandchildren, and 35 great grandchildren.
