The moment has come and the Horton’s Funeral Home Family has been given the solemn duty to announce that  OTIS COLTON PLEDGER, also known as “Crow” is no longer troubled with the cares of this world but he is now resting among the Heavenly Host. Mr.Pledger began his life of everlasting peace on Saturday August 14,2021 while resting at Peak Resources Outer Banks in Nags Head, NC.

He was born April 23, 1940 to the late Mary Ann Daniels Pledger and Charlie Henry Pledger, Sr. of Manteo, NC. He attended public schools in Dare County and worked for many years as a concrete mason. At an early age, he became a member of Haven Creek Missionary Baptist Church.

He leaves to cherish his memories: one devoted daughter, Veronica Brickhouse, of Manteo, NC; one son, Otis McMurran, of Kill Devil Hills, NC; eight grandchildren: Idasia Brickhouse, J’daiha Brickhouse, Dominique Nelson, Veronica McMurran, Jasmine Baum, Kaleb Diaz, Darias McMurran, Draven Fisher; four great grandchildren

The Services honoring Crow’s legacy will take place Saturday August 21,2021at 9am at Haven Creek Missionary Baptist Church Cemetery Manteo, NC. During this time, family and friends can gather and remember better days with Mr. Otis while relying on their faith to get them through this difficult time. As difficult as it will be for his family to dismiss from this earthly resting place without Crow, all will find solace knowing he is in that land where there is a tree and its leaves are good for the healing of all infirmities. There, he will rest by the brook flowing with living water, forever resting in eternal paradise.

The Compassionate Professionals at Horton Funeral Home and Cremations are humbled to be a part of this precious family and serve them with uncompromising dignity and love during this difficult time.
