On Friday, May 19th, 2023 Alfred E. Hussey, 88, peacefully entered his eternal home surrounded by his family. Alfred was born on October 2,1934 to Mary Colrena Sexton and Goley E. Hussey at Trochlers Hospital in Burlington, NC.
Alfred was raised in Jamestown, NC and graduated from Jamestown High School on May 29,1953. He served in the US Army as a part of the military police from December 1953 to November 1956. Alfred returned to Guilford County where he met the love of his, Nancy Marie Boggan. The two were married on November 18, 1960. They went on to have four children. Mr. Hussey had a successful career as a pipefitter and he finished his career with Starr Electric as head maintenance at the Goodyear plant in Asheboro. He enjoyed weekends by the lake, fishing, gardening, and he loved to spend his days watching Nascar and Westerns in his favorite recliner.
Mr. Hussey was preceded by death by his mother, Mary Colena Sexton, his father, Goley E. Hussey and his son, Jimmy Hussey. Mr. Hussey was a wonderful husband that leaves behind a loving wife of 62 years, Nancy Marie Bogan Hussey, his daughters, Janie (Philip) and Jackie Routh, his son, Jason Hussey; his grandchildren Mark Woodard, Tina Britt (Jason), Ashley Davis (Chad), Justin Woodard (Lindsey), and Davis Hussey. Alfred was fortunate to be blessed with ten great grandchildren and a large extended family that he loved very much.
Alfred was filled with a wealth of knowledge but some of his best advice to loved ones was “To all you young people, get all the education you can get and vote in every election because politics is going to affect everyone especially you as you get older.” He also often reminded loved ones to, “Get all the gusto you can!”.
Visitation with the family and a memorial service will be held from 2:00-4:00 pm on Friday, May 26, 2023 at Midstate Funeral Services, 304 Laner Ave, Asheboro, NC 27203.
A special thanks to the ICU staff at Randolph Memorial Hospital for the love and care they have provided our family.
