Lennon Junior Judd

February 8, 1952 ~ November 4, 2020 (age 68)


Lennon Junior Judd age 68 of Carthage, North Carolina transitioned into eternal rest on Wednesday, November 4, 2020, at Moore Regional Hospital.

Lennon Junior Judd (Buck) was born on February 8, 1952, to the late John H and Lula Judd in Harnett County. He transitioned to his heavenly home on Wednesday, November 4, 2020, at Moore Regional Hospital in Pinehurst, NC. At the tender age of 68.

            Lennon attended Benhaven High School in Olivia, NC. He was known for his big smile and for always being happy. He loved fishing, kickball, baseball, riding a bicycle, coloring, arts and crafts, and bingo. He loved watching television, anything having to do with Westerns, Walker Texas Ranger, The Andy Griffith Show and I Love Lucy. Lennon loved the outdoors, but for some reason, he didn’t like to exercise and would sit outside all day if you would let him. He didn’t care if it was 90 degrees outside, you would always see him in an undershirt, T-shirt, jacket, and hat. Lennon, believe or not, was also big on fashion and would help Alexis pick out her outfits for school. Whatever shirt, belt, shoes, or other items he would pick out for her she would gladly wear it without questioning his pristine judgment. He loved to be around family and wouldn’t miss any family functions if he could. One time when trying to get him to hold a baby, he said “No, they too little.” When asked if he would hold them when they got bigger, he said ”Yeah.”

            Lennon was very independent and liked to do for himself. He was a natural when it came to fast cars just like the rest of his brothers and liked to talk about them. He would always go to bed early, around 6 pm, and wake up at the crack of Dawn around 5 or 6 am. Sometimes we would have to convince him to stay up and watch television later hoping he wouldn’t get up so early, but no, he would still wake up with the chickens.

Lennon believed in going to church and enjoyed it so much that he would get a little upset if he missed it. He was a member of St. Paul CME Church and always paid his tithes before moving from Holly Springs, NC to Peak Pinelake Nursing Home in Carthage, NC. While at Peak Pinelake, he attended all of the Church Services and would partake in every activity they had. Lennon was the most popular person at Peak Pinelake, truthfully, he was the most popular person at every facility he visited. Everyone loved him and his big heart, probably because he was a firm believer in sharing and would always share his snacks. He was so popular and loved that in February of 2020 Lennon was crowned Pinelake King.

            Lennon has joined his siblings in the heavenly realm Bertha McDougald, Rebecca Williams, Norwood Judd (John Lee), Dorse Judd, John Glenn Judd, Leo Judd, Dorothy Mitchell, and Clifton Judd (Ed).

Lennon Junior Judd leaves to cherish his memories two sisters, Geneva Judd (Carthage, NC), Brenda Williams (Holly Springs, NC), and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives, and many friends.
