Lyman Danziel Gregory



January 1, 1931 ~ May 21, 2020

Angier- Lyman Danziel Gregory, 89, passed away peacefully at home Thursday surrounded by his loving family and caregiver, Cindy. A native of Harnett County, he was the son of the late Rass and Polly Matthews Gregory.

Lyman farmed, held many positions at the US Postal Service in Angier and retired as a rural route carrier after over 40 years. Lyman graduated from Angier High School, class of ’49 and attended Wake Technical Community College (WW Holding) later in life. While in high school Lyman served as bus driver, assisted the Principal with various duties at the school, was a member of the Bible Club and French Club for 4 years, served on the “Echo” yearbook committee, was projector operator and played a part in the senior play. Lyman had many hobbies, but his happiest times were spent with his beloved wife Romaine to whom he was so devoted. He was an avid farmer, fisherman, handyman of many vocations, loved gardening, which he shared the bounty with family, neighbors and friends. Lyman served on many committees with the Town of Angier.

He was as a lifelong member of Neill’s Creek Baptist Church serving as a Deacon and on many other committees. One of many of his noted efforts in the community was while serving the Town of Angier. He and his committee, along with the Woman’s Club of Angier planted Crepe Myrtles which resulted in the branding of Angier as “The Town of Crepe Myrtles.”

In his last couple of years Lyman was confined to a wheelchair due to severe arthritis, diabetes, and Parkinson’s disease, but was always willing to share a laugh, his knowledge of history, farming and other topics with anyone who spent time in his presence. Many thanks to Liberty Home Care and Hospice, caregiver Cindy, neighbors and friends who helped the family during his illness.

A graveside service will be held Wednesday, May 27, 2020 at Harnett Memorial Park in Lillington at 2:00 pm.
