Carlos A. McNair

ASHBURN —  Funeral services for Mr. Carlos A. McNair, 84, of Ashburn will be held at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 9, 2013 at the Ashburn First Baptist Church. Interment will follow at the Rose Hill Cemetery. Mr. McNair passed away peacefully, Wednesday at his home in the company of his loving wife of 59 years.

The son of the late Felix Ashley and Annie Frances Yarbrough McNair, he was born in Mt. Dora, Fla. and was retired from management with Golden Peanut Co. He had lived in Ashburn since 1987. He was a faithful member of the Ashburn First Baptist Church where he was a deacon, former Sunday school teacher and choir member. He was also a former longtime member of the Ashburn Rotary Club. He was also retired as captain in the U.S. Army and served in the Korean War.

He leaves behind a powerful example of a life lived with integrity, faith, perseverance, humility, generosity and love. He was an example of Proverbs 22: “A good name is more desirable than great riches.”

Survivors include his wife, Harriet Brown McNair of Ashburn; and his children, Kimberlin (Steve) Kincaid of Blowing Rock, N.C., Deborah Ann (Ian) McTurk of Valdosta, Bonnie Lynn McNair of Macon and David Ashley McNair of Hahira. Also surviving are his grandchildren, Amanda Kincaid, George Kincaid, Nathan Lyon, Kristin Altepeter, Ashley Fletcher and Hannah Fletcher; his great-grandchildren, Zeb Fletcher, Anna Altepeter, Ella Fletcher, Lily Altepeter and soon-to-be-born, Tye Fletcher; and a brother, Lee Audrey McNair of Towanda, Kan.

The family will receive friends from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday at Perry Funeral Chapel.
