James Alvin Leigh

"God has always stood by my side, He has always been my guide
Whatever I need I just pray,
Because I know the Lord will make a way, He stood right by my side"

Our beloved, James Alvin "Spook" Leigh, age 59 of Elizabeth City, NC, silently left this world on Sunday, June 17, 2018 at his residence.

"Through many heartaches and Pains, Through the storm and through the rain
Sometimes I was too weak, To carry On
But He gave me strengh, made me strong
He stood right by my side"
