Mr. Fred Worley, 89, of New York, transitioned from time to eternal rest on April 12, 2020. Fred, one of nine children born to the late Eddie Worley Sr. and Ludenia Stephens Worley, was born April 29, 1930 in Fairmont, NC.
Fred left Fairmont in 1956 to move to New York City. Over a life well lived, he was employed in various occupations; chauffeur, truck driver, insurance agent, entrepreneur and building manager.
Fred leaves to remember him, three children, Shantha Worley, Melody Brown and Lamonte Worley; six grandchildren, Shevonne Worley, Zena Maisonet, Nicole Stewart-White, Shiana Herron, Sierra Herron and Chovair Graham; and three great-grandchildren, Me’Khia Brunson, Gabryella Maisonet and Adriis M.G.Dinham, two sisters, Linda Thompson and Alease Bullaras well as a host of other relatives and friends.
Fred knew what he wanted said at his funeral. From 2015; in his own words:
“Fred is gone. My savior has gone before me and therefore no one should spend valuable time appraising my life. Worship the one who is risen for the reconciliation of God the Father for our justification by grace through faith and not of works, lest any man should boast.”
Rest in peace, good and faithful servant.
