Mr. Pipkin was born on Nov. 29, 1927, to the late Lois and Ethel Pipkin. He was a carpenter until he retired and enjoyed fishing, working with his hands and gardening. He was a devoted family man and never turned down someone in need. He had an "open door policy" with family and friends alike.

He is survived by four sons; Rodney Pipkin and his wife, Barbara, of Pikeville, Ronnie Pipkin of Kenly, Johnny Pipkin of the home, Donnie Pipkin and Lynn Crow, of Goldsboro; two daughters, Brenda Carter and her husband, Douglas, of Dudley and Darlene Stafford and her husband, Joseph, of Goldsboro; three brothers, Mark Pipkin, Edgar Pipkin, and Clifton Pipkin; sister, Lois Edwards of Bethel, and Mary Pierce; five grandchildren, Richard Carter, Kira Pipkin, Amy Capps, Ronnie Pipkin Jr., and Rodney Pipkin Jr., and one great-grandchild, Alex Carter.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by three brothers, Wesley Pipkin, Needham Pipkin, and Jimmy Pipkin; and a sister, Agnes Melvin.

The family will receive friends at the home of Darlene Stafford at 105 N. Martin Road, Goldsboro, N.C. 27530.
