With tender hands of compassion and genuine hearts of love, the Majestic Family joins with the devoted loved ones of Mr. John Council affectionately known as “John Frank” as they prepare to say “until we meet again."

Mr. Council’s family has reserved Saturday and Sunday, October 9th and 10th as the days to celebrate his life. Commencing on Saturday from 3pm to 5pm at Majestic Funeral Homes Elizabethtown Campus. Family and friends may gather to reminisce on lasting memories while visiting with Mr. Council. The events will climax on Sunday at 2pm with a Triumphant Farewell Celebration in the A.B. Hobbs Memorial Chapel on the premises of Majestic Funeral Home in Elizabethtown, NC. Following the services in the chapel, Mr. Council’s delicate temple along with his adored family, will be escorted to St. Rest AME Zion Church Cemetery in White Oak, NC for Interment Rites.
