McBride Jr., Carl Eugene - Los Angeles, Ca  
CARL EUGENE MCBRIDE, JR. Los Angeles, California Carl Eugene McBride, Jr., Ph.D., aged 67, died in his West Hollywood home on August 14, 2015 of complications resulting from chronic respiratory disease. "Gene" as he was known to family and friends, was a native of Goldsboro, NC. The elder son of the late Carl E. McBride and Pamela Culbreth McBride, Gene is survived by his brother Robert O. McBride, of Wilmington, his nephew Josh McBride, also of Wilmington; one aunt, Mrs. Helene Culbreth; and numerous cousins. Gene spent his childhood on Maple Street in Goldsboro, enjoying a close knit group of neighbourhood children and several family dogs. His family took many fun trips mainly to NC beaches. Family reunions at Wrightsville Beach with the Culbreth family and Thanksgivings with the McBride family were some of his happiest times. Gene was an Eagle Scout. Gene was a 1965 graduate of Goldsboro High School, and a 1969 graduate of UNC Chapel Hill. He completed Master's and Ph. D. degrees in chemistry from the University of Minnesota in 1975. Gene spent his early career as a research chemist for Celanese Corporation in Corpus Christi, Texas and later as senior research chemist at Atlantic Richfield Oil Company, Los Angeles, California. He retired from BP Petroleum in 2003. As gifted as he was as a research chemist, Gene was also an avid philatelist since his childhood days in Goldsboro; a family historian; and a collector of almost anything that had to do with the city of Goldsboro, the state of North Carolina, North Carolina lighthouses, and the history of eastern NC barbeque. He was an audiophile and film buff; his collections of both numbered in the thousands. In his retirement years Gene was deeply involved with his community in West Hollywood, and was well known locally as an outstanding organizer and party host. While he loved his California home, North Carolina was always calling - and he had recently developed plans to return to NC permanently in September. The family will receive friends on Friday, August 28, 2015 from 1:00 - 2:00 p.m. at Seymour Funeral Home, 1300 Wayne Memorial Drive, Goldsboro, NC followed by a brief graveside service at 2:30 p.m. in Willowdale Cemetery. The ashes of Gene's beloved border-collie "PJ" will be interred with him, in the hope and belief that they will get to roam many fields together as they once did. While flowers are appreciated, the family also encourages your consideration of The American Lung Society or your local hospice if you wish to make contributions in Gene's memory. Online condolences may be sent to the family at www.seymourfuneralhome.com .

McLean, Estelle B. - 1. New Hanover  
ESTELLE B. MCLEAN Mrs. Estelle Brown McLean "Stelle", was born on July 26, 1930, the 3rd child of the late Eather Brown and Grace Widemon Brown. On Saturday August 22, 2015 our mother, grandmother, aunt, cousin and friend transcended to celestial peace. Stelle was raised in Bessemer City NC with her siblings and parents until 1941 when they relocated to Wilmington NC due to employment advancement for her father who worked as a longshoreman. Stelle began her education in the public schools of Asheville NC. Following relocation to Wilmington NC, she continued her education at Williston Industrial School system and finished her schooling at Cape Fear Community College. Stelle grew up attending Mt. Zion AME Church and later became a faithful member of Mt. Olive AME Church as an adult. Stelle served on the Senior Choir, Usher Board, Young At Heart Club and was a Class Leader. Upon graduating from Williston Senior High School in the class of 1947, Stelle's work experience began as a housekeeper, continued at the National Linen Service and American Standard with her career ending at General Electric after working 20 plus years. Stelle also completed coursework related to her career at General Electric as well as non-credit coursework through Cape Fear Community College in her later years. As a young woman, Stelle met and married William McLean and although they did not have any children from their union, Stelle had three children from previous relationships Ardith, David and Kenneth as well as a grandson she helped to raise David "Mikie". Prior to her health declining, Stelle enjoyed gardening, crossword puzzles, traveling, spending time with family, bowling, serving at church-particularly with the dinner sales, was an active member of the senior citizens club, played scrabble and bingo with her friends as well as watched Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy nightly. Stelle leaves to cherish her memory: her three children Ardith Brown (Frank), David Brown and Kenneth Brown (Inez); one grandson that she helped to raise David "Mikie" Johnson; Brothers who preceded her in death: Willie Brown (Ethel) and Leroy Brown (Thalia); Grand Children, Rod Brown, Frankie Brown, Juan Brown, D'Angela Brown, Regina Brown, deceased, Michelle Graham, David Johnson, Corea Williams, Satanta Taylor and Timmie Johnson, a host of great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, cousins, extended relatives, friends and prayer partners amongst her Mt.
