Mr. William Thomas McDowell

July 3, 1935 ~ March 19, 2020 (age 84)


With an abundance of love and concern, the Majestic Family is embracing the heartbroken loved ones of Mr. William Thomas McDowell as they prepare to say “Farewell” to this vital link to their family chain. Mr. McDowell closed the curtains on this journey called life on Thursday, March 19, 2020 at Cape Fear Valley Bladen County Hospital in Elizabethtown, NC. 

Services to commemorate the legacy of Mr. William will begin with a public visitation on Friday, March 27, 2020 between the hours of 7pm and 8pm where Mr. McDowell’s will lie in a tranquil repose in the main chapel of Majestic Funeral Homes’ Elizabethtown location. The events will climax with a Triumphant Obsequies on Saturday, March 28, 2020 at 11am at the Majestic Funeral Home Chapel.  Mr. McDowell along with his adored family will be escorted to the Browns Creek AME Zion Church Cemetery for Interment Rites. Yes, this is as far as Mr. McDowell’s relatives can trod with him on this side of eternity, however, John the Revelator has sent good news to Mr. Williams’ loving family when he wrote, "And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes and they shall be no more death neither sorrow because the former things have passed away."  Let the church say.........Amen. 

Left to cherish fond memories are his children:  Thomas McDowell, Jr., Edna Laws and Cynthia Gale McDowell; his sisters:  Josephine Lewis and Christine Miller; six grandchildren and a host of other relatives and friends.

Guests are being received at the residence located at 210 David St., Elizabethtown, NC where they will also assemble in preparation for the Prestigious Majestic Ebony Motorcade.

The Compassionate Professionals of Majestic Funeral Homes are walking hand in hand with the heartbroken McDowell and connected families during this period.


Governor Roy Cooper has passed yet another Executive Order on Mass Gatherings and has reduced the limit of mourners who can attend a visitation and or funeral service. We are ONLY allowing 25 family members including ministers and staff to attend services and or be present in our establishment at the same time. Our firm is committed to providing professional services to each family that we serve while abiding by all of the rules and regulations issued by our state officials. In an attempt to allow those who can’t be present in person to support those who are grieving, Majestic Funeral Home has implemented “Live Streaming” of all Funeral Services. The Bible teaches us that “the strong shall bare the infirmities of the weak” so we feel allowing guests to view the funeral ceremonies with our families in “Real-Time” even if from afar will help those who have lost a loved one find solace knowing others still care. Please select the obituary of the loved one you wish to view services for and the option to watch service “Live” will appear. 

God Bless each of you during this trying time in all of our lives.
