With humbled hearts and consoling minds, the Majestic Funeral Home Family serves notice that Reverend Charlie Wilbert McDowell has layed down the cares of this world in Haymount Rehab and Nursing Center in Fayetteville, NC. From there, he picked up his new wardrobe and golden keys for his everlasting life in Heaven.

The Glorious and Triumphant Life Celebration events have been methodically orchestrated and will proceed in the following order.  Beginning on Tuesday, December 22, 2020 between the evening hours of 6pm and 8pm a public gathering will come forth as Reverend Charlie Wilbert McDowell lies in a tranquil repose at Majestic Funeral Home Chapel in Elizabethtown, NC. Visitors will be greeted by a formally dressed Majestic Servant of Service whose sole purpose is to cater to the needs of the McDowell family and those who have come to share love with their precious gem. On Wednesday, December 23, 2020 being called to order promptly at 1 o’clock Post Meridian, the Angelic Obsequies  fit for Heaven’s Royal Priesthood will take place at A.B. Hobbs Memorial Chapel in Elizabethtown, NC. At the conclusion of the Triumphant “Send Off”, Charlie along with adored relatives will be escorted to his earthly waiting room called Brown’s Creeks AME Zion Church Cemetery until his name is called to receive his crown of Righteousness . For many years this man of God has preached his prayer and drew sinners to a saving God. Now all can find peace knowing he is now sitting at the welcome table hearing the Master say “Well-Done” thou good and faithful servant, you have been faithful over the things on earth, now I will make you ruler over many.
