John Stallings, Jr. Obituary

Mr. John Alfred Stallings, Jr, age 100, of Teachey, NC, passed from his earthly life on the early morning of January 6, 2024, while at home.  Born on December 20, 1923, he is the son of the late John Alfred and Lillie Belle Blanton Stallings.  Also preceding him in death are his wife--Dorothy Pierce Stallings; a son—John Alfred Stallings III; and siblings—Lois Judge, Billy Stallings, and Dewey Stallings.

Mr. John lived almost all his life in the same area of Teachey.  In early life he was in the United States Army, served in World War II, and was involved in the Battle of the Bulge, where he received a Bronze Star.  He was employed for almost thirty years by J.P. Stevens where he became a supervisor in the Wallace plant.  While working for J.P. Stevens, he furthered his education as a machinist and millwright.  When the factory closed, he owned and operated Stallings Tire & Battery in Wallace for thirty-eight years.  During all these years, he farmed and served as  Master Mason for sixty years.  As a lifelong member of the First Baptist Church of Wallace, he served the church in many ways.

A service to celebrate his life is set for 11:00 a.m. on Thursday, January 11, 2024 in the chapel of Padgett Funeral & Cremation Services in Wallace.  Family will receive friends at a visitation on Wednesday night from 6:00-8:00 p.m. in the funeral home.  Entombment will be in the Riverview Memorial Park Mausoleum following the funeral service on January 11, 2024.  The family appreciates and would like to thank all the caregivers for the great tender care they provided while he was at home:  Linda Lanier, Tara Murphy, Sam Keil, Cynthia Carter, Clara Pate, Dottie Carter, Kathy Strickland, and Ann McQueen.  It is the request of the family that, rather than floral arrangements, contributions be considered to the Disabled Veterans in his memory.
