Lea Roy Dameron, 93, of Burlington went home to be with the Lord on Tuesday, January 28, 2020.

His funeral service was held Saturday, February 1, 2020 at Lowe Funeral Home in Burlington.

Mr. Dameron was born September 9, 1926 in Caswell County, NC, to the late Walter and Lillian Fuqua Dameron. Retired from AT&T (Western Electric), he was a veteran of the United States Army, serving during WWII in the European Theatre.

Survivors include his wife, Margaret Woodell Dameron; son, Ronald Dameron and wife Cindy of Siler City; daughter, Cathy Evans and husband David of Burlington; granddaughters, Jennifer Bridges and husband Tyler of Siler City, Lisa Rambeaut and husband Josh of Liberty, and Alexis Dameron of Siler City; sisters, Mable McKinney of Elon, Nancy Dameron of Burlington, and brother, Grant Dameron of Winston-Salem; and several nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by brothers, Eugene, Joseph, Maxie, Glen and sister, Ruby Pierce.

Lea was a beloved family man; his granddaughters were the light of his world. He was especially known for his giving nature, witty humor, and contagious, radiant laugh. He constantly stayed busy, as he was a skilled mechanic who enjoyed working with his bands. Lea cherished working with his son on the farm and spending time in his garden with his granddaughters. His granddaughters could always count on his smiling face front row, cheering them on at every dance recital, science project, sporting event, graduation, and anything else they embarked upon.
