Zollie "Zeke" Gupton

May 27, 1944 ~ January 27, 2020 (age 75)


    Zollie "Zeke" Gupton, son of the late Zollie and Lillie Mae Gupton was born May 27, 1944. He made his transition to his heavenly mansion and eternal resting place on Monday, January 27, 2020 at Maria Parham Medical Center in Henderson, North Carolina.

    Zollie received his education in the Franklin County School System, he worked in logging for many years until his health failed. 

    Zollie was a member of Jones Missionary Baptist Church until his passing.

    Zollie was a well known man in the community and would help anyone that he could. He enjoyed his animals, and cutting fire wood when he was in good health.  If you knew him, you knew he would make you laugh at least once and it was probably because he said what was on his mind.

    Zollie was preceded in death by one son, Charlie Gupton, four siblings including one brother, Otis Lee Gupton, and three sisters, Lottie Pearl, Annie Marie, and Gracie Mae Gupton.

    He leaves to cherish his memories: his loving wife, Brenda Gupton of the home; one son, Zollie Gupton, Jr. (Natalie) of Louisburg, NC; two grandchildren, Ze'Asia and Zaire Gupton both of Louisburg, NC; one sister, Ernestine Gupton of Louisburg, NC;  one niece, Lois Gupton of Louisburg NC; four nephews, Kelvin Gupton (Yvette) of Augusta, GA, Willie Earl Gupton,  James Gupton and Thomas Earl Gupton all of Louisburg, NC; a special little fellow whom he said made his day, Daniel "Boope" Dockery of Louisburg, NC; a host of great nieces, great nephews, cousins, other relatives and friends.
