Richard L. Godfrey, 64, passed away on Friday, September 4th. Richard was a retired Media Specialist for Durham Technical Community College and worked part time at the State Employees Credit Union in retirement. Richard’s favorite hobby was extended rides on his Harley, surrounded by other favorite two-wheel enthusiasts. Another favorite pastime was his daily Zen time with his cat, Gracie. He was an accomplished woodcrafter and photographer. He was a loving husband and father, immensely enjoying dinnertime with his family. Richard had a personable soul and enjoyed a close network of friends coast to coast.

Surviving are his wife of 41 years Sherri Sluder Godfrey, daughter Ashley Grace Godfrey, mother Marjorie E. Godfrey, and sister Terri M. Godfrey. Also surviving are mother-in-law Shirley B. Sluder, brother-in –law Rusty Sluder and wife Trudy, brother-in-law Philip Sluder and wife Sherry, niece Amanda Sluder, nephew Josh Sluder and wife Ashley, niece Kelly Logan, and nephew Colby Payne.

Hello, sorry for your loss. I was a suite-mate with Richard "Dick" when in college at WCU. John Cannon my roommate then, called and let me know about his passing. We had good times together, he taught me photography, lead molding (for diving weights) and probably a few other things. I remember well his giving me about 5 chickens when I first started in the ministry.
I pray the Lord will give you and the family strength during this time of loss and grief.
Rev. Frank Gordon

Hi my name is Kayla and I am a local bible teacher. I am so sorry for the loss of your loved one. There is a very comforting scripture at Isaiah 25:8. It says that soon Jehovah will swallow up death forever and that he will wipe away all of the tears. So we can all look forward to a time when death will be no more. I hope that this scripture can bring some true comfort during these difficult times.

I worked with Richard, and I really enjoyed his company. He always had a funny story and a smile. He will be missed very much and I was very saddened to hear of his passing. I am so sorry for your profound loss and hope you will find peace with his passing in time.
