Obituary Image


Lacy French Currie was born June 23,  1939, in Robeson County to the late French and Eva  Currie. He was called from Labor to Reward on March  14, 2023. He joined Pleasant View Baptist Church at  an early age, where he served diligently for many  years. Lacy served as Sunday School Superintendent  and on the Trustee Board for several years. He was a  member of Spring Branch Masonic Lodge 41. 

Lacy was educated in the Robeson County School  System. Lacy followed his father around, learned  farming skills at an early age, and became an avid  farmer for over 20, growing tobacco, cucumbers,  wheat, corn, and beans. Lacy also raised hogs and  planted a garden to help support his family and the  community. Lacy worked for Broadwell Construction  for several years before gaining employment with  Burlington Industries/Carolina Mills for 36 years,  where he was a fixer until his retirement (the plant  closed). 

Lacy loved motorcycles and cars and would often  race his 57 Chevy in races at Rockingham and  Fayetteville drag strips, where he won several first place trophies. Lacy had a passion for tinkering with  things and repaired and worked on almost all of his  farm equipment, vehicles, and community vehicles as  a hobby. He was quite a humble man that was full of  

knowledge and wisdom. Lacy was co-owner of Currie  Drag-strip with his nephews. 

Lacy was preceded in death by his wife, Helen Christine  Sinclair Currie, his daughter Karen A. Bullard,  sister Rosetta Atkinson and two brothers, Willie Lee  Currie and James Adam Currie: one grandson, one  granddaughter, and one great-great-grandson. 

Lacy leaves to cherish his loving memories: his  daughters, Francine J. Currie of Elizabethtown, North  Carolina, Shelba Rush (Thomas) of St. Pauls, North  Carolina and Angelar (Cedric) Thompson of St. Pauls,  North Carolina; son-in-law, John Charles Bullard;  three granddaughters, Lakisha, Chiquita (Mike), and  Octavia; four great-grandchildren, Trey’von, Titonia,  Lanaria and Kyrie; one great-great-grandson, Amari;  two sisters, Elouise McAllister of Springfield, Virginia  and Grace Z. Currie of St. Pauls, North Carolina; Lacy  also leaves a host of nieces and nephews that he loved  dearly, cousins and friends.
