Andrews Mortuary & Crematory Obituary

Mr. James Garvey, beloved son of Kenneth and Rebecca and grandson of Lillie Mae and recently deceased Thurman “Pete” Garvey.

James was born on August 10, 1973 and was a lifelong resident of Hampstead, NC.

He became a volunteer at the Hampstead Fire Department while attending Topsail High School, where he was a graduate. He was offered a scholarship from GMC but a true family man at heart, decided to join the family business and later on started his own business. James continued with the fire department achieving Chief status. As a result of his continued work there and his deep felt need to help others is credit to his kind heart and willingness to help anyone with no expectation of anything in return. Having been this person he has touched the hearts of many and was loved by everyone who was lucky enough to have known him.

His big heart and beautiful spirit and life will forever be cherished in the immense love of his wife, Dianne Garvey and their 4 amazing children, Steven Daniel, Madison Lynn, Alexandra Nicole and Jamie Garvey. The beloved son-in-law of Lorraine and Donald Bedson. Big brother to sister, Julia Ann and brother, William Lyle and uncle to their children, MyKayla Nysha and Declan Grey Garvey. Along with love of many extended family and friends. He will most surely be missed by all who were privileged enough to know him.

A funeral service will be held at 11:00 am Monday, January 9, 2017 at Topsail Baptist Church. The family will receive friends from 5 to 7:00 pm Sunday at Topsail Baptist Church. Burial will be at Sea Lawn Memorial Park.
