Willie Gerald Vestal, 80, died peacefully Saturday, January 2, 2021 at Person Memorial Hospital.  Born in Yadkin County, N.C., son of the late Willie Hayes Vestal & the late Odessa Reece Vestal.  Mr. Vestal retired after approximately twenty-five years of service at various industrial laundries in North Carolina & Connecticut; he then continued to work as a consultant in the industrial laundry industry.

Mr. Vestal was past-president of the Grange Hall in Old Richmond, N.C.; he was also the past-chairman of Boy Scout Troop #946 in Old Richmond, N.C. where he loved to interact with the youth but most importantly with his sons Randy and Roger.  He was also very proud & humble of his prior service as a volunteer member of the Forsyth County Rescue Squad.

Surviving is his loving & devoted wife of over sixty-one years Sadie Brewer Vestal of the home in Yanceyville; two sons, Randy G. Vestal of Yanceyville & Roger K. Vestal and wife, Virginia, of Timberlake, N.C.; one brother, Larry Vestal and wife, Patsy, of Germanton, N.C.; one sister, Colleen Poindexter and husband, David, of Mint Hill, N.C.

Private Graveside Rite will be held at 1:00 PM Thursday, January 7, 2021 at the Vestal Family Cemetery. The family will receive friends one hour prior to the Graveside Rites at the cemetery 12:00 PM until 1:00 PM Thursday, January 7, 2021.

The family respectfully & humbly ask that – due to the COVID-19 Pandemic – anyone attending the services to please wear a mask, practice social distancing and use hand sanitizer.

In lieu of flowers, in remembrance of the late Mr. Vestal - a long-term survivor of stage-four kidney cancer, memorials may be made to the American Cancer Society.

It is the sincere hope that a Remembrance Ceremony celebrating the life of Willie Gerald Vestal can be held later this year once circumstances return to normal and mass gatherings can be conducted safely.

Harrelson Funeral Services of Yanceyville, N.C. is privileged to be serving the Vestal Family.
