With sincere compassion and dedicated care, the Majestic Funeral Home Family has been given the responsibility to announce that Mr. Marvin Woodrow Purdie transitioned from this life to life eternal on Tuesday, April 13, 2021 at Cape Fear Valley Medical Center in Fayetteville, NC.
The services have been methodically arranged in an order that those special to Mr. Purdie and his adored family can take part. Commencing on Friday, April 23, 2021 between the moments of 5pm and 7pm, a time of visitation and reflection will be held at Majestic Funeral Home in Elizabethtown, NC. Yes, this is as far as Mr. Purdie’s relatives can trod with him on this side of eternity, however, John the Revelator has sent good news to Mr. Purdie’s loving family when he wrote, “And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes, and there shall be no more death neither sorrow because the former things have passed away.” Let the church say......... Amen.
