As all remain in extreme sorrow and astonishing disbelief, S. Jones F. and C. has been charged with the solemn responsibility to announce that Pastor Teicher Patterson has transitioned from this life making his permanent change of address on Friday, July 17, 2020 at the Nash UNC Medical Center.
Mr. Patterson was the Principal of the Enfield Middle STEAM Academy and the Pastor of Shekinah Outreach Ministries.
Commencing on Saturday, July 25, 2020 in the sanctuary of Englewood Baptist Church 1350 S. Winstead Ave, Rocky Mount, North Carolina 27803, Pastor Patterson will lie in state for mourners to come and pay their respects during a Public Viewing from 12 pm - 2:00 pm with the Celebration of Life Ceremony beginning at 2 pm.
Final Rites will conclude with a Walk Through Viewing from 1 pm - 3 pm, Sunday, July 26, 2020 in the sanctuary of the Cape Fear Conference B. Headquarters Raeford, NC. He will be laid to rest in the Highland Biblical Gardens following the viewing.
(DUE TO COVID-19 PRECAUTIONS, MASK ARE MANDATORY TO ATTEND ALL SERVICES)
It will be streamed live beginning at 1:45 pm for those who wish to attend but can not via Facebook at 1:45 p.m.
Halifax County Schools statement
Mr. Patterson impacted the lives of many and we are delighted by the overwhelming desire of the staff and the Enfield community to celebrate his life with events ranging from the school district hosting a private viewing and ceremony to community initiated activities.
Indisputably, Mr. Patterson was “star power” and under normal circumstances, we would welcome any opportunity to let the fruits of his labor shine publicly.
Unfortunately, current times are far from normal. Halifax County Schools will celebrate the life of Principal Teicher Patterson when it is appropriate.
In the spirit of safety first and saving lives, HCS will show our love and respect for Mr. Patterson through participation in services rendered by S. Jones Funerals & Cremations Inc.
