James Russ Harvey

JAMES RUSS HARVEY was born to Earlie Warren, Jr. and the late Lucille Bowers Harvey on February 24, 1982, in Halifax County, North Carolina, and departed this earthly life on Thursday, August 25, 2016, at Vidant Medical Center in Greenville, North Carolina.

His formal education was received in the Halifax County Public School System, and he attended the former McIver Elementary School in Littleton, North Carolina.

James had love in his heart for his Lord and Savior and all the love in the world for his family. He showed warmth, kindness, and care for everyone with whom he came into contact.

James’ hobbies included raising dogs, especially pit bulls, and spending time with all of his family and friends. He did not have a bad or harsh word for anyone. He was just an all around loving person who will be forever remembered and greatly missed.

In addition to his mother, he was preceded in death by his sister, Darn Durham; and his paternal grandparents, Maggie Woodard and Earlie Warren, Sr.

Those remaining to cherish the precious memories of his life and love are his father, Earlie Warren, Jr. of Hertford, NC; his siblings, Velvet Powell (James) and William L. Harvey of Roanoke Rapids, NC, Mary Johnson (Michael), Tara Warren, and Jermaine Warren (Gail) all of Newport News, VA, Earlie Warren III of Wilson, NC, Tyrel Woodard (Brittany) of Elizabeth City, NC, and Ebonie Warren of Hertford, NC; and a host of aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends including a very special friend, Charotta Lynn Ray of Shelby, NC.
