Harold Dean Futrell, 69, formerly of Jacksonville, N.C. passed away on April 1, 2024, after a courageous battle with cancer.

Harold was a devoted father to Rick Futrell of Holly Ridge, and beloved brother to sisters Kay Futrell Smart of Hampstead, N.C., Faye Futrell Jones of Maiden, N.C., and Judy Futrell McDonald of Leland, N.C.

He was a graduate of Dixon High School, Harold retired from Corning, Inc. in Wilmington. He called his 1990 Corvette his big indulgence. Harold was always willing to help others, whether babysitting dogs or plants, and giving a helping hand to those who asked. His smile was quick and genuine. His sense of fairness without question, and generosity beyond what could be expected.

A celebration of his wonderful life will be held at a later date.

On line condolences may be sent in his memory to www.wilmingtoncares.com.

    Harold was a true friend. He was a hard worker and a beautiful human being. He was a blessing to me in my work life at Corning and my heart is broken 💔 I hate we didn't have time for that retirement lunch date Harold. I will miss you dear friend.
