Harold Geddie, 76, comedian with a zest for life

Harold Geddie

OAK ISLAND — Harold Geddie, 76, peacefully passed away Monday, May 31, 2021.

Harold was born May 15, 1945, in Fayetteville to the late Wilbert Henry Geddie and Pearl Holmes Geddie of Wade. Harold was employed by NCR as a computer technician for several years prior to becoming president and CEO of Sector Computer Systems of North Carolina in Raleigh. After 25 years of Sector, he retired and moved to Oak Island. He was an active member of the Oak Island Moose Lodge for many years.

Harold was quite a comedian with a real zest for life and a determination to reach his goals. During his later years, his health restricted him from doing many of the things he loved, particularly sailing. Even so, he loved to have family and friend gatherings, and loved oysters. He enjoyed watching the birds and squirrels at the feeders, and he so loved his little cat of 14 years, Gracie.

Harold was preceded in death by a sister, Patricia Geddie Barber, and her husband, Eugene Barber, formerly of Oak Island.

Harold is survived by his wife of 43 years, Ramona Reynolds Geddie; three daughters, Wendy Pleasants, and her husband, Donald, of Wake Forest, Robin Henderson, and her husband, Melvin, of Clinton and Sandie Cottrell, and her husband, Danny, of Oxford; stepson, Johnny Cyrus of Knightdale; eight grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren (with two more on the way!); niece, Mary Lou Barber of Oak Island; and nephew, Will Barber of Lenoir.

A celebration of life will be held at 3 p.m., Saturday, June 5, at Peacock-Newnam & White Funeral Home Chapel, 1411 N. Howe St., Southport.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to either Southport/Oak Island Animal Rescue (SOAR), 3376 St. Charles Pl SE, Southport, NC 28461; or St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
