Alfred Ray Squires

Alfred Ray Squires went home to be with the Lord on April 17, 2024. A resident of Bolton, NC, he was born in Kelly, NC on February 27, 1946. He was a lifelong resident there until being displaced by Hurricane Florence in 2018.  He was preceded in death by his parents JD Squires and Sadie Squires as well as brothers Odell, Elvin (Buddy), sisters Kathellen Malpass, and Cherry Sholar.

He is survived by his wife of 52 years, Frances of the home. He had two sons, Jackie (Sarah), and Brian Squires. Alfred is also survived by two granddaughters Abigail Squires and Marcie Squires, sister Carolyn Buie (Howard), brothers Claude, Jerry (Sherry) and countless nieces and nephews.


Alfred was a member of Centerville Baptist Church and was active at Natmore Baptist Church. He retired after working 32 years at International Paper Sawmill in Riegelwood as a boiler operator. Alfred spent many years balancing farming along with his job. He also loved to fish with his boys. His favorite thing to do was to throw a popping bug bait while drifting the banks of the Cape Fear and Black Rivers. The true love of Alfred Ray’s life was his family whom he meticulously cared for and loved. He had all the patience in the world and let no outside influences take precendence over them. He modeled a wonderful example of a husband and a father and left no doubts about what that was supposed to look like. He has left a big hole that will be hard to be filled.


The family will honor him on Saturday April 20, 2024 with visitation at 1:00pm and funeral services after at 2:00pm at Centerville Baptist Church with Rev. Allen Murray and Rev. Teddy Lawson officiating,  Burial will follow at Natmore Baptist Church Cemetery.
