Silous Isaiah "Buddy" Owens

May 17, 1940 ~ November 16, 2019 (age 79)


Isaiah "Buddy" Owens, age 79 of 3527 June Rd., Sanford, NC passed on Saturday, November 16, 2019 at Westfield Rehabilitation & Health Center, Sanford, NC. 

I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: 2nd Timothy 4:7

Mr. Silous Isaiah (Buddy) Owens, the son of the late Jerry Owens, Sr. and the late Metres Ray Owens was born May 17, 1940 in Harnett County. He quietly took his Heavenly flight on Saturday morning, November 16, 2019 at Westfield Rehabilitation and Health Center in Sanford, N. C. at the age of 79 years.

He was educated at Johnsonville High School and graduated in 1962. He retired from Sanford Tobacco Company.

Everyone knew and loved him for his sweet personality. He would always help everyone he met. He loved all of his nieces and nephews, just like his own and would do everything he could for them. That’s the kind of person he was.

He joined and attended White Oak Missionary Baptist Church and served wherever he was needed until his health failed.

He was preceded in death by two sisters, Mary Willa Owens Kelly and Mattie Ruth Owens Shoffner, three brothers, James C. Owens (J.C.), Roosevelt Owens and Jerry Owens, Jr.

 He leaves to cherish his sweet memories: Four sisters, Margaret O. Dixon (Paul) of St. Albans, NY, Doretha O. Nelson (Larry) of Broadway, NC, Minnie O. Judd (Carlester), and Cleo O. Bryant both of Sanford, NC; one brother, his twin Ezekiel Owens (Annie) of Lillington, NC. and a host of nieces, nephews, relatives and friends that he loved very much.

Sunset and evening star and one clear call for me! And may there be no moaning of the bar, when I put out to sea.
