Fred Bible

   Fred Bible, 92, of “Peaceful Pines”, in the Arrowhead Beach community, Edenton, NC, died Wednesday, March 29, 2023 in his home.

   Mr. Bible was born in Louisville, KY on March 1, 1931 and was the son of the late Leigh and Ida Loe Davidson Bible. In addition to his parents and his siblings, he was preceded in death by two daughters, Marie Bible and Freda White.

   A veteran, Mr. Bible served in both the Navy and Air Force. After his military service, he worked as a driver and retired from Greyhound Transport Company. He was a man with deep Christian beliefs and was a member of Faith Pentecostal Holiness Church where he served on the church Administrative Board and with the Men’s Fellowship. Time with his family, especially his grandchildren, meant everything to Fred. He loved to garden, tend his flowers, and both hunting and fishing.
