Our community extends its deepest sympathy to the family of Bradley Scott Gaither, who died early Thursday morning of last week at Gordon Hospice House of Statesville after a brief hospital stay. He had been in declining health for a few years. The youngest of four children, he was born in 1968 in Iredell County to the late Roy and Mary Templeton Gaither of County Line. He was reared on NC 901 near Rimrock Road, attended Clarksbury Methodist with his family, and helped his parents on their farm. He graduated from North Iredell High School in 1986 and earned an associate degree in floral design and commercial horticultural management in 1988 from Randolph Technical College. Gifted in retail management and customer relations, Bradley worked in management for more than 28 years for Dollar Tree. Although primarily based in Statesville, Dollar Tree sent him many times to open stores in new locations. For many years he lived in Statesville but moved to his parents’ home after his mother’s death; he was lovingly cared for by his niece Marie when needed. A private memorial service celebrating his life will be held at a later date.
Bradley and his mother Mary contributed to our community news flashbacks many times and shared treasured photos. Their support of our news through the years was always greatly appreciated. .
Our community sends get-well wishes to Alice C. Waugh, who required emergency treatment for a broken ankle and has returned to Davie Nursing and Rehabilitation Center of Mocksville. Carol Brazel has improved and is recuperating at home.
Join us in prayer for the Lord’s divine healing upon Alice, Carol, and other residents who are having health problems. Pray for the Lord’s comfort and strength upon the family of Bradley as they deeply miss his presence in their lives.
Remember in prayer the family of Mabel Litaker Moore, who died Jan. 8; she was the wife of the late Clarence Moore and daughter-in-law of the late Will and Lottie Moore, who lived in County Line for many years.
ord has been received today of the unexpected death of Gene Snow. Please remember his family in prayer. Bunch-Johnson Funeral Home of Statesville is serving the family.
