Death is never easy to accept. I pray that God’s Holy Spirit is with the family to provide comfort. Soon there will be a ressurection that will take place and also death and sickness will be no more. This hope is found at Revelation 21:3-5. Visit jw.org for more beneficial and comforting hope.

The Segner family: I have known Dr. ken for over 35 years first as a student , him teaching graduate classes to community college administrators working on advanced degrees. He was an excellent instructor and represent N C State University very professionally. Then when I came back to my home town of Elizabeth City to work in the family hardware business he and his wife became customers and friends. Dr ken and I had an on going joke about it was not to late to change my grades from “A” to something lower. I saw him one day last week in the parking lot of the drug store and of course the grade joke ended our conversation. He was always grateful for any thing you did for him wheather it was visiting him and his wife in the nursing home are fixing his fishing equipment are making his flash light work. He called several times just to say thank you for caring and taking up time with his family. He will be missed not just by Judy and me but buy many. We are truly sorry about his passing and will miss him, but he is no longer in pain.

Condolence from Kent and Becky Pritchard on January 12th, 2015 4:15 pm

Louise, we shall miss Ken. You and Ken have been really good neighbors over the years, and friends always. Ken had a wonderful sense of humor which I never appreciated until after I’d been a neighbor for a while. The two of you have been a tribute to both the state, county and this little neighborhood for many years. Hopefully, you will remain and enjoy the solitude and relaxation of your future years. I hope everyone will remember Ken only as an intelligent, and caring person who became frustrated with the ills of age which consume us all. I’ll miss Ken and his jokes about…da wives. He knew, as I, that our wives keep us in line. You were HIS rock. Now relax a bit, and enjoy the rest of your life. Ken will be watching over you in his new life. We will be trying to watch out for you a little, in this life. Know we are close if you need us; and know that we do appreciate you as a GOOD neighbor.

Condolence from Martin and Sue Spry on January 13th, 2015 7:07 am

Louise, I am very sorry for your loss. Ken always had something to say and had a wonderful wit about him. We will miss seeing him walking down the street with a big smile upon his face. We will keep you in our hearts and prayers. I can see him now walking down the road with his beloved dog “Pattie”.

Condolence from Charlotte Underwood on January 15th, 2015 1:53 pm

Condolence from Mark & Melissa Harnly on January 17th, 2015 9:58 pm

Louise, so sorry to hear of Ken’s death. Mark and I so enjoyed the times he visited the gym and showed his enthusiasm for the Bruins. He always had so much zeal and enthusiasm for “round ball” as he liked to call it. Prayers and hugs for you as you grieve your loss.
Love, The Harnlys

Condolence from Albert and Melinda DelGarbino on January 17th, 2015 10:36 pm

Dear Louise,

Condolence from Larry Cooper on January 18th, 2015 8:03 pm

Louise, so sorry to hear about Ken’s passing. I didn’t know until today. I will let Tracey know at work. I will miss him greatly. He was not only a loyal client but a dear friend.

Condolence from Gabriel Hilbert on January 18th, 2015 8:46 pm

Just wanted to say that Ken was a wondorous and great man with many quirks, but a good heighbor. I actually did not get to know him until recent years and then not all that well, but I have to say he was a very intriguing man and an inspiration in ways I cannot even explain. He was moest and humble in many ways that are probably not even realized by many people who knew him, but I have to say he earned a place in my memory that will remain always up till my passing, and may that take as long as his. He was a special individual often misunderstood but never the less loved. Rest in peace old friend and familiar sole.

Condolence from Harvey Fryer on February 15th, 2015 2:48 pm

I just spotted this obituary today. I did not know Ken Segner. We both had Henry Segner as 2nd great grandfather and I traced from Henry Segner down to Kenyon Bertel Segner III a year or so ago. I am sorry to see another cousin no longer with us. Please accept my condolences.
