Carroll E. "Bull" Durham, 79, passed away early Thursday morning, March 27, 2014, at his home.
"I, Carroll E. "Bull" Durham am writing this obituary to ease some of the pressure from my survivors making arrangements. I was born Sept. 7, 1934 in Charlottesville, Virginia, to Annie L. Durham and George L. Durham Sr. I was preceded in death by my parents; my first wife, Shirley Norford Durham and one brother, George L. Durham Jr. My survivors are Misty D. Turner (Jeff) of Mount Sidney, Richard Daryl Durham (Kris) of Ruckersville; three granddaughters, Emma, Samantha, and Sara Turner of Mount Sidney; two brothers, Charles R. Durham of Hermitage and Merlin W. Durham of Earlysville; also, my best friend and caregiver, Kit Hudson of Waynesboro. My entire adult life was involved with country music-playing with local bands, doing studio and T.V. work. I joined the Statler Brothers organization where I spent 20 years as band member and band leader, traveling the entire United States and Canada many times. The highlight of my performances was performing at the White House for four presidents. It's been a long hard road, but I enjoyed almost all of it, even the uphill grades. And with this said, I will now bid you all adieu."
The family would like to thank Dr. David Herring and also Meagan Clayton of Augusta Health-Hospice of the Shenandoah for their support and care during his illness.
A graveside service will be at 1 p.m. Monday, March 31, 2014 at Augusta Memorial Park, Waynesboro. Family and friends will assemble at the cemetery for the service.
Honorary pallbearers will be Billy James, Kit Hudson, Donnie Lawhorne, Randy Layman, Johnny Quillon, Donnie Day, Quinter Garrison and Garry Dudley.
The family will receive friends from 6 to 8 p.m. Sunday, March 30, 2014, at Charlton and Groome Funeral Home, 619 Lifecore Drive (formerly 961 Goose Creek Road), Fishersville, Virginia.
