Obituary for Gilbert Lee Hare

Gilbert Lee Hare, 57, passed away on Wednesday, June 12, 2019 at Kitty Askins Hospice Center surrounded by his family.

Gilbert was born in Wayne County on September 4, 1961 to Tempie Creech Hare of Goldsboro and the late Paul Hare. At the age of 18, Gilbert began volunteering with the Grantham Volunteer Fire Department and began his career as a Firefighter with the Goldsboro Fire Department on November 8, 1989. Gilbert was later promoted to Fire Engineer on August 17, 1994 and to Fire Captain on April 2, 1997. He proudly served the citizens of Goldsboro for more than 26 years. Gilbert lived a life of dedication to his family and friends, and to his community. He also served with the Belfast Volunteer Fire Department and the Pikeville Volunteer Fire Department while living in those communities.

At the age of 9, Gilbert joined Falling Creek Baptist Church in Goldsboro and later attended Pleasant Grove Free Will Baptist Church. Gilbert was most comfortable outdoors, on the water fishing or in the woods hunting. He always enjoyed the opportunity to watch a good football game.

The family will receive friends on Friday, June 14, 2019 from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. at Seymour Funeral Home. A service to celebrate Gilbert’s life will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, June 15, 2019 at Falling Creek Baptist Church with Pastor Anderson Barnes officiating. Interment will follow in the church cemetery with fireman honors.

In addition to his mother, Gilbert is survived by his children: son, Paul Hare and girlfriend Britney and daughter, Sarah Hare; brother, Michael Hare and wife Marilyn; and nephew, Ryan Hare.

In addition to his father, Gilbert was preceded in death by a brother, Paul Leon Hare.
