Archie Palmer Adcock, 84, of Siler City died Monday, March 23, 2020 at Chatham Hospital, after 3 1/2 years of declining health.

Mr. Adcock was born in Chatham County on February 17, 1936, the son of Paul C. and Pauline Marie (Smith) Adcock. Archie began his work career at Dependable Hosiery in Liberty and later transferred to the Siler City Plant and worked hard and tirelessly during a 50-year career. He diagnosed and maintained the factory machines, a job that was never quite complete. When the plant was sold in the 1990’s the new owners told Archie he had done an amazing job.

Archie was an avid NASCAR enthusiast from the age of 14, spending time in Daytona, watching and learning the skills and talents required for the sport. He had attended the races in Daytona for 57 years.

He is preceded in death by his parents and a brother, Pat Adcock.

He is survived by his wife of 60 years, Louise Buckner Adcock; sisters, Cathren “Chigger” Tillman, Clara Langley, Carol Hammer (Garrett), Ann White (Bob), Brenda Fields (Gary); brother, Bill Adcock (Barbara), all of Siler City; and numerous nieces and nephews.

The body will lie in state, Tuesday, March 24, 2020 from 12 to 5 p.m. at Smith & Buckner Funeral Home, 230 North Second Avenue, Siler City. A private graveside service will be held with Rev. Jim Whitaker and Rev. Carl Belcher officiating.

The family wishes to thank their friends and neighbors for the many acts of kindness, phone calls, and meals shared during this time.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to West End United Methodist Church, 1104 N. Chatham Ave., PO Box 1017, Siler City, NC 27344 or First United Methodist Church, PO Box 212, Siler City, NC 27344 or Chatham County Council on Aging Meals on Wheels, PO Box 715, Pittsboro, NC 27312.
