In loving memory of William "Bill" Arrington

Fund Type: Memorial Donations

Ahoskie, NC

Fundraiser ends on March 18, 2021

Please donate to the Food Pantry in memory of Bill Arrington who has dedicated countless time and money to help feed families.

Mr. Arrington was born on April 3, 1937 to Paul and Minnie Bell Arrington in Martin County, NC. He graduated from Ahoskie High School with the class of 1955.  Bill then served his country for 28 years with the United States Coast Guard, retiring as a Chief Warrant Officer IV in 1980.  After returning to civilian life, Bill fulfilled a second career with the Hertford County Social Services, retiring after 15 years of service to the community in that role.  Guided by an entrepreneurial spirit, Bill was a proud business owner- he formerly owned a Sears Catalog Store in Ahoskie and until the time of his death he was co-owner of Arrington Insurance Agency Inc.  His customers and employees were extended family.  Bill was a dedicated member of First Baptist Church of Ahoskie where he was honored to serve as a deacon.  However, the Ahoskie Food pantry was the mission to which Bill dedicated the latter part of his life.  Generous with his time and personal finances, he sought to provide for the most vulnerable members of his community for over 20 years.  Never one to seek the spotlight, Bill received various community service awards with the Governors Medallion Award for Volunteer Services in April of 2020 being one of the most notable. Bill loved his family dearly and will be deeply missed by all that knew him.

Thanks for your donation!
