Obituary

With humbled hearts and consoling minds, the Horton Funeral Home Family serves notice that Lessel Jackson also know as  “Shakka” has layed down the cares of this world while resting in Greenville,NC. From there, he picked up his new wardrobe and golden keys for his everlasting Life in Heaven.

The Glorious and Triumphant Life Celebration events have been methodically orchestrated and will proceed in the following order.  Beginning on Saturday, December 17,2022 between the evening hours of 4pm and 6pm a public gathering will come forth as “Shakka” lies in tranquil repose at Horton’s Funeral Home Cremations. On Sunday, December 18,2022 being called to order promptly at 1 o’clock Post Meridian, the Celebration of Life will take place at Edenton United Methodist Church with Elder Colon James, officiating.

Now all can find peace knowing he is now sitting at the welcome table hearing the Master say “Well-Done” thou good and faithful servant, you have been faithful over the things on earth, now I will make you ruler over many.
