Deceased Name: HENRY CARRINGTON, 109
Henry Carrington, who always had a smile and some kind words, died Sunday at age 109.
He was born on Christmas Day in 1887.
He was a farmer in Nelson, Va., until 17 years ago, when he moved in with his daughter, Laura Parker, of West Oak Lane.
Carrington was born and raised in Nelson.
"He didn't have any education," Parker said.
"He could only write his name. But he was a good religious man. He was smart.
He had common sense.
"I can't begin to tell you how he is going to be missed . . . He didn't get bedridden until about two months ago."
Parker said Carrington "always had a smile, always had kind words to say" and often joked with his grandchildren.
He belonged to Wharton Memorial Baptist Church in Nelson.
Other survivors include his son, Willie Hoover Carrington; another daughter, Evelyn Moses; stepdaughter, Emma Edmonds; 10 grandchildren; 22 great-grandchildren; and nine great-great-grandchildren.
Friends may call from 9 to 11 a.m. Friday at Christopher G. Kent Funeral Home, 5911 W. Girard Ave. Services will be at 11 a.m. at the funeral home.
