Robert Lee Seabron, affectionately known as “Pete” was born on August 24, 1941 to the late Aaron and Minnie Seabron in Seaboard, North Carolina. Robert transitioned from this earthly life, to suffer no more, on June 10, 2020 at 9:40 am, in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.
Robert was raised in Seaboard, North Carolina during the sharecropping era. He later moved to Baltimore, Maryland where he met his wife, Bernice and they were united in marriage for more than fifty years and of this union, three daughters were born.
Robert had a strong work-ethic. He believed in providing and protecting his family while often helping others along the way. He loved to fish, hunt, cook and enjoyed a good party. When you saw him, he was always sporting his fanny pack which he took seriously.
Robert, through the wisdom and grace of God, stood as the giant he was, against all odds that were set against him and became the founder of several successful businesses. He had a true entrepreneurial spirit and would turn lemons into sweet lemonade.
Robert passionately loved life and people; his fun spirited personality, along with his contagious smile, would light up any room. He was a strong source of strength for many. It has broken the hearts of his family, friends and love ones to lose Robert. However, as the Lord wraps his arms around him and whispers “peace be thine”, this same peace shall be ours. To God be the glory, his life and legacy lives on.
Surviving to cherish his memories, three daughters: Robin (Howard) Hooker, Zebra Seabron and Teresa McDuffie, two grandchildren: Chine’ and William III, two great-grandsons: Elijah IV and Emory, two sisters: Lucille Moody and Louise Faison, three brothers: Aaron (Effie) Seabron, Willie Seabron and Willie (Angie) Seabron.
