Obituary for Maurice Andrew Person
Maurice Andrew Person went to be with the Lord on August 13, in his home, surrounded by family. Born in Capron, VA to Walter and Elsie Person, Mr. Person was the youngest of nine children. During the Great Depression, the family left Southampton County and moved to Portsmouth, VA where Mr. Person graduated from Cradock High School. After graduation, Mr. Person went on to earn a Bachelor of Science Degree in Civil Engineering from the Norfolk Division of the College of William and Mary. After college graduation, Mr. Person was commissioned as an Engineering Officer where he was stationed at Lowery AFB, achieving the rank of Captain. After being honorably discharged, Mr. Person returned home and earned a Master of Science degree in Civil Engineering from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University. Mr. Person then joined Hampton Roads Sanitation District where his work and expertise led him to become the Director of Engineering culminating with forty years of service. In his spare time, Mr. Person was an avid golfer and spent enjoyable time with the many dogs he adopted over the years. Left to cherish his memory are his wife Barbara Jean, daughter Wendy (Neal) Porter, grandchildren, Noah and Brooke, Brother-in-Law Eddie Creekmore, Nephew Mark Person, Niece Gina (Chip) Artz and a host of other nieces and nephews. Mr. Person always loved his annual family reunions, therefore a celebration of life will be held at the upcoming family reunion to be held at Person’s Church, in Drewyville VA, on September 15th at 9:45am. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to Persons UMC attn.: Mark Person, Treasure. P.O. Box 14121 Richmond, VA 23225, in memory of Maurice Person.
