BURLINGTON - Jeffrey Lynn Emerson, 57, of 316 West 5th St., passed away on Thursday, March 21, 2013, at Alamance Regional Medical Center.
You probably knew Jeffrey, because he walked fast everywhere. He went purposely holding his head down. If you are a local merchant, he tried to shop at your store as often as possible. If you were a person of the street, he shared what little he had.
A native of Lynchburg, Virginia, he was the son of Harold Easley Emerson and Doris Shaner Emerson, both deceased.
In addition to his parents Jeffrey was preceded in death by a brother, Harold Easley Emerson Jr.
Survivors include two brothers, Warren Lee Emerson of Winston-Salem and Bruce Emerson of Piscataway, NJ and a host of other relatives and friends.
A memorial service will be held on Monday, March 25, 2013 at Alamance Funeral Service from 6 to 8 p.m.
Alamance Funeral Service has the honor of serving the family.
