Roy McNatt

June 28, 1934 — August 3, 2021

Roy Lee McNatt was born to the late Minnie Gilmore McNatt and Bennie McNatt on June 28, 1934, in Fayetteville, NC. He transitioned from labor to reward and traded his earthly crown for a heavenly one on August 3, 2021.

Roy was educated in the Cumberland County School System. He accepted Christ at an early age while attending his home church, Lock’s Creek AME Zion Church. In his early twenties, he moved to Newark, NJ; there, he attended Faith Temple Freewill Baptist Church. He later met and married the late Mrs. Lena Wright McNatt; to this union three children were born: Roylnn, Malisha, and Sherry McNatt. They eventually migrated back to North Carolina and he continued attending his home church until his health declined.

Roy served the community as a plumber for over 40 years. After working so diligently for many years, the fruits of his labor came into fruition and he was later able to retire. He had a heart of gold and would give the shirt off of his back to anyone in need. Roy never met a stranger and by the end of the conversation, you would forever have a place in your heart for him.

Roy is preceded in death by: his wife, Lena Wright McNatt; two bothers, William McNatt and Paul McNatt; six sisters, Martha Viola Samuels, Annie McNatt, Ruby Patterson, Melissa Martin, Annie Rhone, and Winnie Lewis.

Roy leaves to cherish his memories: three daughters, Roylyn McNatt, Malisha McNatt, and Sherry McNatt; two brothers, Bennie (Dororthy) McNatt and Robert McNatt; two sisters, Christine Pounds and Iola Kelly; three grandchildren, Craig Faulk, La’Toi McNatt, and Coleman Robinson; five great grandchildren, Amare Faulk, Aisha Faulk, Mackenzie Faulk, Peyton Robinson and Preston Robinson, a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, extended family members, and friends. Roy will greatly be missed!
