Obituary For Paul Jeffery Dail

Paul Jeffery Dail, age 62, of Jacksonville NC, passed away on August 14th 2022, surrounded by his family. He passed away due to injuries sustained from an accident.

Paul was born in Washington DC to Preston and Violet Dail. As a teen, he loved spending his time on a motorcycle. As he got older, he shifted his focus from tending to tobacco fields towards small engine repair. This sparked his passion to learn a trade, start his own business and become a lifelong Electrician.

In his high school years, he met Rowena Deaver. They fell in love and treasured 42 years of marriage before he passed away. Within 4 years they had started a family, complete with a son named Ryan (wife, Marlyn; grandson, Elijah) and a daughter named Stephanie (husband, Aubrey, granddaughter Sophia). He had a passion for collecting historic guns and coins, riding motorcycles, hunting, and fishing.
Being a role model and dependable father was of the utmost importance to Paul and he certainly did not disappoint when it came to wholeheartedly loving and providing for his family.

In addition to his wife and children, Paul is survived by his two grandchildren, Sophia and Elijah, sister Deborah Lockhart, and brother Roger Dail. He is preceded in death by his parents Preston and Violet Dail, sister Donna Jacobs, and brother Howard Dail.

The funeral services will be held at Johnson Funeral Home, 2685 Henderson Drive Ext. in Jacksonville. There will be a viewing for family and friends on Friday, August 19th , 6 to 8 pm. There will also be a memorial service on August 20th at 2pm, performed by Pastor Pat Patton. His family will be present to welcome loved ones.

In lieu flowers, please consider memorial donations to Baptist Children’s Home of NC (PO Box 338 Thomasville, NC 27360) in memory of Paul Dail.

    I remember when I first worked with Paul started out as temp. I couldn't believe how much of a hard worker, go getter, leader and teacher Paul was until worked with him in 2006. I learned a lot as a apprentice electrician taking classes and field trips to advance in this Trade still do today. Paul you will be missed and not forgotten. May God's glory be you and the Dail Family always.

    I was very sorry to hear of Paul's passing into Eternity. Paul was the model to me for what a good ElectricIan, Bossman, and Owner should be, and Pauly, as I called him, was the best of all to me. I treasure my time working for him at Intrastate and the times talking with Paul and he working right alongside us on projects. He will definitely be missed.

    I remember the first time I made a birthday cake for Pete and it didn't turn out so good. Paul said it was really good I liked it. And we all kind of laughed because it actually came out like rubber. He had a good sense of humor. I always appreciated him asking about how my parents were doing. Rowena, Ryan and Stephanie we love you and if there's anything we can do for you to give you peace please don't hesitate to call. I love you all and I am praying that you have peace ,comfort and strength during the days to come.
