Obituary

Carlacy Haith III was born on December 18, 1946 in Greensboro, N.C. He was affectionately known to many as Carl. His family and close friends called him by his nickname Duke. When he was young his parents Carlacy Haith Jr. and Edna Haith moved to Boston after a brief stay in New York City. He was the eldest of thirteen children. After attending Boston Public Schools he joined the United States Army where he served three years in Vietnam. He received an honorable discharge in 1969. Carl married Velma Jordan in 1969 and this union produced 4 beutiful daughters, India, Lawana, Carlisa and Carla

Carl loved to golf, play pool, dance, and he loved being a Mason. Carl served as Worthy Grand Patron from 1975 - 1985 for John G. Jones Grand Chapter, O.E.S under the jurisdiction of M.W.GW. Carver Grand Lodge A.F.& A.M. He served as Worthy Joshua, Rahab Court No. 56, Heroines of Jericho, and Supreme, Vice Worthy Joshua; Sir Knight Ambassador, Martha Eyum Council No. 1, Lady Knights Templar; III Patron, Isadora Court No. 2A. A.O.D.OS.: Patron, Betty Meridith Sunbeam Circle No. 1; Supreme trustee O.E.S and was Patron for Ruth Chapter No. 4 from 1971 - 1987. Carl joined the M.W.G.W Carver Grand Lodge in 1969 and was initiated into John G. Jones Lodge No. 8. After several years he and several brothers petitioned the Grand Lodge to start a new lodge for which he became the First Master of Eureka Lodge No. 15 in April 1974. He was the Supreme 2nd Ceremonial Master and Deputy Grand Master of the M.W.G.W. Carver Grand Lodge A.F.& A.M. It is quite evident that Carl had love for his Masonic family and he enjoyed working in the various houses. He was an outstanding Masonic brother.

However nothing gave Carl more joy than being a Grandfather to Makya age 13 and Carmello age 8 who affectionately call him PaPa. He made sure to attend all school events and enjoyed spending quality time them. He especially enjoyed bringing them to Ihop for pancakes.

His work experience consisted of 19 years with Prudential Insurance Company where he was a Field Office Planning Consultant in marketing operations. Carl was also the former President of The Boston Branch NAACP. On June 29, 1982 he was the co-chairperson on the steering committee for the 73rd Annual NAACP Convention held in Boston, Ma.

Carlacy is survived by his four loving daughters India Haith of Boston, MA, Lawana Haith of “Atlanta, GA”, Carlisa (Marcello) Holliday of Boston, MA, and Carla Haith of Boston, MA. Two grandchildren Makya and Carmello Holliday. Siblings: Ida Haith of Boston, Ma, Nina Haith of Greensboro, N.C., Angela Haith of Boston, MA, Gloria (Lynn) Woods, Howard (Pamela) Steward, Sharon Sumpter, Michael Haith, Pamela (Dennis) Lawrence, Sylvester Haith, Colestia Haith and Lacy (Eulyssa) Haith all of Greensboro, N.C. Also an adopted sister/cousin Judy (Rufus) Oatman of Willingboro, New Jersey and a host of many loving cousins, nieces, nephews, dear friends, as well as his Masonic and O.E.S brothers and sisters.

He was preceded in death by is loving parents Carlacy Haith Jr. and Edna Haith, two younger brothers Frank & Clark Haith and his lovely wife Velma Haith.

Gloria, My Dear & My entire Haith Family,
There are no adequate words that I can convey at this most difficult time. There is ALWAYS comfort in God's word the Bible. Death is our enemy and it will be swallowed up forever as found at Isaiah 25:8. Jesus came that we might have life and have life more abundantly. Today, we all have beautiful memories of Duke to cherish until we see him again as promised at Revelation 21:4 "And he will wipe every tear from their eyes, and death ill be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." What a wonderful reunion awaits us!

I give my condolence to the Haith family. Bro. Haith was a dear friend to me. When I was in my early 20's he took me to get my 1st license and in my 30's he adopted me into the masonic family. We have always been close and talked a lot of junk to each other. He will be forever missed!!! -Sis. Kiesha Harrison
