Maccubbin Sr., Robert - Charlotte  
Robert J. Maccubbin, Sr. CHARLOTTE - Robert J. Maccubbin, Sr., passed away December 20th, 2014, surrounded by those who loved him dearly. We have lost a true gentleman, husband, father, grandfather and friend. He will be truly missed. Bob was born June 25, 1930 in Westfield, NJ to Harold and Frances Maccubbin. He spent his youth on Long Island and later attended Washington and Lee University where he met his true love, Connie Rogers, on a blind date. They married in 1953 and had 61 wonderful years together. His service to our country as a Navy pilot ended upon the death of his father-in-law in 1956. He left the Navy to join Curt L. Rogers Company where he would spend the next 36 years with his brother-in-law and partner, Curt Rogers, building Rogers-American Company into one of the most respected Food Brokerage companies in the US. Along the way Bob developed many lifelong friendships with his associates, customers and clients. He retired in 1993 leaving behind a legacy of patience, compassion and willingness to always lend a hand to those in need. God and family were always the center of his life. The love he shared for his wife, three children and seven grandchildren and extended family will be most remembered. We cherish many special memories of dinners at Nana's, family trips and countless family reunions at Ocean Isle Beach and the farm in Linville. He was a Life Deacon at Myers Park Baptist Church where he taught Sunday school and was a member for over 50 years. He was also an avid golfer and loved to travel playing courses all over the world. He was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease in 2000 and lived the next ten years to the fullest. He spent the past two and a half years in Willowbrook Court at Plantation Estates medical unit where he and Connie received wonderful care, compassion and love from the entire staff. We would like to thank the staff for the comfort and love that he and Connie received on a daily basis during his illness. Bob is survived by his wife of 61 years, Connie Maccubbin; daughters Debbie Allison of Charlotte, Lynn Garton of Greensboro and son Rob Maccubbin and his wife Cason of Charlotte; seven grandchildren, Cortney Addiar (Dustin), Casey and Conner Allison, Kris and Kelley Garton, Mac and Casey Maccubbin; sisters-in-law Betty McKee, Alice Rogers, Robin Rogers, Candy Rogers; brother-in-law Bill Rogers, aunt Mable Davis and Sue, Harold and Ken Maccubbin. A service to celebrate his life will be held at 2:00 Saturday, December 27th, at Myers Park Baptist Church officiated by Reverend Joe Aldrich, Reverend Robin Coira and Chaplain Larry Watts. The family will receive friends in Heaton Hall following the ceremony. Memorials can be made to Myers Park Baptist Church, Salvation Army Women's Auxiliary and Friendship Trays. Gaskin Funeral Services are handling the arrangements.

McAllister, Alice Bolger - Charlotte  
Alice Bolger McAllister CHARLOTTE - Alice Bolger McAllister died December 25, 2014, at Novant Matthews Hospital after a period of declining health. Alice was born on April 20, 1932, in Astoria, New York, to James Patrick and Alice Carney Bolger. She graduated from Saint Michael's Academy on the Hudson in New York. Alice was employed by Eastern Airlines and AT&T prior to finding her true vocation as wife, mother and grandmother. Alice met her husband Frank on July 4, 1951, on the beach at Rockaway. They were married on November 14, 1953, in Woodside, New York, and recently celebrated their 61 years of marriage. Alice made homes for her family in New City and Poughkeepsie, NY, before moving to Charlotte in 1980 as part of the IBM relocation. Alice was involved in many civic, social, bridge, church and school groups throughout her life. Alice's biggest joy was her family. She made every birthday, holiday, or get together a special event. Christmas was her time! Alice took childlike pleasure in the season. She was happiest when surrounded by family. Alice will be greatly missed by all who knew her, especially her husband, Frank McAllister; her daughter Jeanne Bradley and husband Ray, her son James McAllister and wife Denise, her son Richard McAllister and wife Cecelia, her daughter Allison McAllister, all of Charlotte, and her son Kevin McAllister and wife Karen, of Morristown, NJ. Grandma leaves a hole in the lives of her six grandchildren: Michael McAllister, of Charlotte, Morgan Bradley, of Baltimore, Kimberly McAllister, of Charlotte, and Colin, Christopher and Courtney McAllister, of Morristown, NJ. Alice is survived by her sister Mary Frain of Flemington, NJ; her sister-in-law Peggy McAllister of Jackson Heights, NY; her sister-in-law Pat Ferris of Greenpoint, NY; brother-in-law and sister-in-law John and Barbara McAllister of Wayne, Pa. Aunt Alice is also survived by many nieces, nephews and cousins who will miss her thoughtful ways. In May of 2011, Alice was the fourth person in North Carolina to receive a trans-catheter aortic valve replacement at Duke University Hospital. She was very proud to be part of this valuable research. Her family is thankful for the additional three-and-a-half years we had with her as a result of her participation. The core valve is now the standard of care at Duke. Alice was a long-time patient of Dr. David Miller and the Levine Cancer Institute. They managed her chronic anemia and made her frequent visits to the infusion center more like days with friends. Alice spent much of the last year of her life at Novant Hospital Matthews and White Oak Manor, Waxhaw. Her family appreciates the love and care shown to her at both facilities. Alice was in no hurry to leave this life but always stressed that when the time came we should celebrate. She also requested that anyone attending her funeral wear bright colors and "leave the black clothes in the closet!" A wake will be held Sunday, December 28, 2014, from 2 to 5 pm at Heritage Funeral Home, 3700 Forest Lawn Dr., Matthews, NC 28104. Funeral Mass will be Monday, December 24, 2014, 11:30am, at St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church, 6828 Old Reid Road, Charlotte, NC 28210. Inurnment in the St. Vincent de Paul Columbarium will follow at a later date. To keep her love of Christmas alive, Alice's family requests that in lieu of flowers donations be made to Kids First, P.O. Box 77936, Charlotte, NC 28271; www.kidsfirstofthecarolinas.org . Arrangements are in the care of Heritage Funeral Home, Weddington Chapel. An online guestbook is available at www.heritagecares.com .

She was editor of her school yearbook and was a member of the Lions Pride Drill Team. Ann received her Bachelors and her Masters Degree in Education from the University of North Florida in Jacksonville. Ann taught high school for several years, as she had a real passion for children. She became a social worker and a guardian for abused and abandoned children. Ann moved to Cornelius, NC to be closer to her mother Mary and her brother Richard. She was blessed to have the best nephews in the world, Christian Thomas and Daniel Patrick McArthur. The most important thing in her life, however, was her personal relationship with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. As a young child, Ann dedicated her life to follow and serve Him. Everything she did was ultimately designed to glorify her Savior, who died for her. Although very ill over the last several years, she always knew the hope that is in Christ Jesus.

McGavran Jr., James Holt  
James Holt McGavran, Jr CHARLOTTE - James Holt McGavran, Jr., Professor of English at UNC Charlotte and beloved husband of Dorothy Heissenbuttel McGavran, died at Carolinas Medical Center in the early hours of December 20, 2014, with family at his side. His loved ones are grateful that he passed without suffering, remaining his youthful, active self until the end, and they celebrate a life that touched and improved so many others' lives personally and professionally. Jim was devoted to his family and to Dorothy (Deje), his wife of forty-six years. He was a gentle, generous, and loving man who was not afraid to show his emotions, which frequently burst out of him in joyful or nostalgic tears when he spoke about the people and things he cared about. His fond and reverent memories of his parents and siblings and their vacations to the Leelanau Peninsula in northern Michigan were recently set down in his book In the Shadow of the Bear: A Michigan Memoir (Michigan State University Press, 2010). His pride in his children's accomplishments was evident to anyone who spoke to him for more than one minute, and his wife and family will remember a man who was supportive every day and dependable in any crisis. In his last three years, he experienced great joy reading to and playing the piano with his grandson, Vincent James Horning. Jim grew up in Columbus, Ohio, and earned a B.A. in English from the College of Wooster in 1963. After a year of teaching in a lyc‚e in Bordeaux, France, he completed an M.A. in English at Columbia University in 1965. He taught for two years at the College of William and Mary, where he met the love of his life, Deje. He returned to graduate school and finished his Ph.D. in English at UNC Chapel Hill in 1973. He then began a long, happy career at UNC Charlotte, where he taught for forty-one years. In 2006 he was the recipient of both the English Graduate Students Association Teaching Award and the campus-wide Bank of America Teaching Excellence Award. He was a born educator, treasured by students and colleagues alike for his kindness, infectious enthusiasm, and love for English literature, especially of the Romantic period. Jim's friends and loved ones will remember him as a brilliant and witty personality, a character with tremendous compassion. He learned from his father how to play piano and accordion, and he frequently regaled relatives and party guests with unforgettable renditions of classic songs like "Let the Rest of the World Go By" and "We'll Meet Again." Music was one of his greatest passions-he spent his whole life singing-and he served for many years as a choir member at Christ Episcopal Church and more recently St. Peter's Episcopal Church in Charlotte. His love for nature and the outdoors was reflected in lifelong interests in hiking and gardening. He spent part of his last morning planting pansies. Jim is survived by his wife; by his daughter Catherine McGavran Horning, her husband Andrew, and their son Vincent; by his son Mark D. McGavran and his girlfriend Fr‚d‚rique Laub‚pin; by his son James H. McGavran III and his wife Cherie Braden; by his brother Frederick J. McGavran, his wife Elizabeth, and their daughters Sarah and Marian; by his sister Mary McGavran Crabb, her husband John, and their children Rebecca, Frederick, and David; and by his dear friend Sharon Frazier and her family. He was preceded in death by his parents, James Holt McGavran (1994) and Marion Jaeger McGavran (2001). His place in the hearts of all who loved him is secure, but he will be dearly missed. A visitation will be held at Hankins & Whittington in Charlotte on Friday, December 26, from 5 to 7 p.m., and a funeral service will be held at St. Peter's Episcopal Church in downtown Charlotte at 3 p.m. on Saturday, December 27. In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to Loaves and Fishes ( loavesandfishes.org ) or the Leelanau Conservancy leelanauconservancy.org . Arrangements are in the care of Hankins & Whittington Funeral Service; please share condolences online at www.hankinswhittington.com
