Brian Keith Hassell

BODY OF MISSING BOATER FOUND - The body of a Manns Harbor man missing since Saturday in the Croatan Sound was found Wednesday afternoon, according to the N.C. Wildlife Resource Commission.  Brian Keith Hassell, 28, had been missing since Saturday night after he fell out of a boat in Callaghan Creek just south of Manns Harbor.  According to investigators, alcohol was involved in this accident.  Sgt. Earl Brinkley, supervisor for the NCWRC in this area, said investigators are ruling this as an accidental drowning.  Added Brinkley, "We interviewed the other man in the boat and we feel he's telling the truth."  Greg Winsett, the second man aboard the boat, told investigators that he and Hassell were drinking when their boat ran out of gas.  About an hour after sunset, he explained, Hassell fell out of the boat and tried to swim to shore.  That was the last time Hassell was seen until his body was located just after 1 p.m. on Wednesday, according to reports.  The U.S. Coast Guard suspended its search at 8:40 Sunday night after searching for nearly 13 hours.  The NCWRC. the Civil Air Patrol, the National Park Service, the Dare County Sheriff's Office and close family members continued searching until he was found.  Investigators have ruled out any signs of foul play.  An autopsy of Hassell's body is planned.  (The Coastland Times [Manteo, NC] - Thursday, October 18, 2001; pg. 4B)

CAPT. DAN HAYMAN'S CAREER REVIEWED BY HIS BROTHER, REVEREND LOUIS HAYMAN - (Note: the following article has been prepared by Rev. Louis D. Hayman, Methodist minister of Carolina Beach, and will be included in the files of the Hayman Clan which will hold its annual reunion in Manns Harbor in July. It concerns his only brother, Capt. Daniel W. Hayman, whose death was recently reported in these columns.)  Daniel Webster Hayman, better know to northeastern North Carolina, Norfolk and the Atlantic seaports from Boston to the Gulf of Mexico as "Captain Dan", has completed his last earthly voyage and tied up his ocean-going tug, the John E. McAllister, at her home port of New York, reported to the office of his company, the McAllister Brothers, Inc., and took leave of his friends there and his officers and crewmen, departing for his home in Norfolk, the first week of April 1952. His ship being called in for inspection and repairs, and he to await sailing on call of this company. His sailing days are over. The first of last July, Capt. Hayman entered the Norfolk Marine Hospital for treatment of injury received in the line of duty on his vessel previously three weeks ago. The doctors found that he had a bulging arterial injury on his left side and decided on operating in order to save his life. The operation, while it proved to be immediately helpful, his people were told that at best he would hardly survive a year, as the history of such cases are generally fatal even though operations are resorted to, within a few weeks to within a few days. Dan outlived his illness by almost a year, However, after a short visit to his old home on Roanoke Island, and mingling with boyhood friends there, he returned to Norfolk and in a few days was compelled to return to the Marine Hospital where his doctors found his condition beyond the help of medical skill. He lingered but a few days, passing quietly and peacefully to his eternal home at 11:15 a.m. May 8, 1952.  Capt. Hayman's funeral was conducted at the Oliver Funeral Home on Colonial Avenue in Norfolk by Rev. A. Irvin Orndoff, pastor of the Wesley Memorial Methodist Church of this city. At the Forest Lawn Cemetery, the final rites were said by a detail of Scottish Rite Masons with the Grand Honors of the Order. His body rests in this beautiful cemetery hard by the Harbor where for more than forty years his entry and departure were frequent occurrences. At the service, the musical selections (music only) were "Brightly Beams Our Father's Mercy" from the hymn "Let the Lower Lights be Burning" and "The Old Rugged Cross". In closing, the minister read by special request Tennyson's "Crossing of the Bar"--a most fitting characterization of Dan's life as a Master Mariner since boyhood.  (The Coastland Times [Manteo, NC] - Friday, May 23, 1952; pg. 1)

Memorial of Rachel Hayman (photo included)
Rachel Hayman was a lovely woman, a wife, mother of two children who made a remarkable fight against cancer. Encouraged by those who cared about her and given enormous support by her husband Mike, Rachel had to pursue life, to participate and to be active. Rachel had professional experience as a model and was called on to make her striking appearance in the most popular local fashion shows. In one of the last shows Rachel appeared in she was poised and graceful. Afterwards she told me that before she came out she felt really shaky but when she came on the walkway and saw me there, grinning and holding my camera ready, she knew she was going to be okay. Of course, everybody there was pulling for Rachel because they knew she had one of the ultimate attributes--pure courage. Now there is not much more to say except her spirit prevailed, her body could not, and we are the ones who will feel shaky when we don't see her.  (The Coastland Times [Manteo, NC] - June 1978)

Naomi Augusta Collins Hester

MANTEO - Naomi Augusta Collins Hester of Manteo went to be with her Lord in Glory while surrounded by family in her Manteo home on April 22. Naomi was born in Manteo, North Carolina on July 28, 1938 to the late Marshall Claude and Gussie Berry Collins. Naomi (Augusta, as family knew her) was well known and loved throughout Dare County.  Naomi completed her formative schooling in Manteo where she enjoyed playing basketball and was competitive with any type of sporting activity. She went on from high school to graduate with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Education from North Carolina Central University, where she was a member of the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. Her first work as a teacher brought her to Virginia and Maryland until finally coming back to teach at Manteo High School from 1974-75 as the first black teacher after integration.  Her lifelong legacy not only as a teacher, but also as a community servant and friend was bringing people of all cultures together to work in harmony. She went on to complete her Master’s Degree in Social Work at Norfolk State University and worked for Dare County Social Services with older adults at risk. She moved on to a position as Coordinator of Student Services with Dare County Public Schools, working with students throughout the County where she retired in 1998, after being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease.  Always concerned with the welfare of youth and community, Naomi was involved with many aspects of Dare County, including founding Monday Night Alive for children at risk. She was an early member of the Freedmen’s Colony Association, Volunteer at Outer Banks Hotline, member of the Patient Advisory Advocacy Program, President of Dare County Heritage Club, and she served as a Board member for NC Aquarium and Centura Bank Planning Board. A life-long member of Haven Creek Missionary Baptist Church, she served in many roles throughout the years, in addition to being a Sunday school teacher and Deaconess. She was the founder and chairperson for the Dare County Interagency Council and even after her illness, Naomi delivered meals on wheels, and continued to sing in the Echoes of Heritage, which she co-founded. She also used her beautiful voice to entertain her friends at GEM and sang at many other events throughout Dare County to spotlight Alzheimer Awareness. She once promoted a motivational seminar at Manteo High School with the famous neurosurgeon, Ben Carson as the keynote speaker, always with the goal of inspiring us all to be the best we can be. She was a featured speaker in the Coast Guard documentary, Gladdened Hearts, speaking about the importance of working together to serve each other and accomplish goals. She was selected as Dare County Citizen of the Year in 2004 and received many other community service awards throughout her lifetime because of her devotion to others. However, her most important legacy was that she was a child of God and she always told us, it’s all about Jesus. Left to cherish Naomi’s memory is her loving husband of over four decades, Osborne (Chuck) Hester of Manteo. She also leaves her three children, son Frank Osborne Hester of Manteo (daughter-in-love, Lynda); daughter, Gussie (Buffy) LaKathryn Hester Shavers of Leesburg, VA (son-in-love, Sjon); and son, Radcliff Collins Hester of Gastonia, NC (daughter-in-love, Abeer). In addition, she leaves seven grandchildren: Raechel (Harrisonburg, VA), Sara (Laurel, MD), and Renae Hester (Manteo, NC), Makenzie and Madison Shavers (Leesburg, VA), Ameena and Adam Hester (Gastonia, NC). She also had five stepchildren; Calvin Hester (Cindy) of Biloxi, MS; Shelia Gatlin of Altanta, GA; Quincey Hester (Daun) of Norfolk, VA; Dennis Hester of Hempstead, TX; and Ernie Faye Williams (Larkin Sr.) of Columbia, SC, and many step grandchildren and step-great grandchildren. Finally, she leaves her twin brothers, Herbert M. Collins (Gert) of Olney, MD and Hubert Z. Collins (Bernice) of Norfolk, VA. She leaves her sisters-in-love, Vanessa Green and Thelma Hester of Morehead City, NC and brother-in-love, Romeo Hester of Alpharetta, Georgia and a host of aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, and loving friends. Naomi was predeceased by her five brothers Claude, Darmon, Vincent, Rudolph, Frank, and one sister, also named Naomi.  The family would like to especially thank all of those who assisted in caring for Naomi in the last several years including family, friends, her dear friends at GEM, Dare County Social Services, Visiting Angels, and Dare County Home Health and Hospice. The family would like to send heartfelt thanks to her special caregivers; Tina, Cleo, Neeva, Jowanna, Marlene, Barbara, Jennifer, Toni, Janie, Debbie, Jan and many more. Since Naomi always believed that flowers should be for the living; in lieu of flowers, we invite those who knew and loved her to make donations in her honor. The family recommends donations to the Hester Family Legacy Fund with the Outer Banks Community Foundation so we can continue her lifelong legacy of community service and helping those in need; especially older adults, veterans, and children at risk. Other recommended charities are GEM, Visiting Angels, DC Home Health and Hospice, DC Social Services or the Alzheimer’s Association. A service of Remembrance will be held at First Assembly of God in Manteo from 2:00- 4:00 pm on Saturday, April 25, 2009 to celebrate Naomi’s life and legacy.

Louise Wescott Hill

 

SOUTHERN SHORES - Louise Wescott Hill, 90 of 105 Chicahauk Trail, Southern Shores, NC died Wednesday, July 1, 2009 in Winslow Memorial Home. She was a native of Dare County, NC; daughter of the late Captain John and Mrs. Eugenia Midgett Wescott; and widow of the late David Hollowell Hill. They were the former owners and operators of Hill’s Confectionary, a member of the City Road United Methodist Church and attended the Kitty Hawk United Methodist Church.  Mrs. Hill is survived by two daughters Gwen Hill Bray of Elizabeth City, NC, Helen Hill Hoppe and husband Lou of Kitty Hawk, NC, one son David Hollowell Hill Jr. and wife Janet of Hatteras Island, NC, one sister-in-law, Helen Hill Kleyla of Nags Head, NC, nine grandchildren - Jeanne Jackson and husband, Andy, William Bray and wife, Julie, Judy Kovac and Maria, Millie Bray McPherson and fiance, Randy Culpepper, Evelyn Bray Gregory and fiancé, David Eves, Caroline and Louie Hoppe, Terry and Trey Hill; and six great grandchildren – Ashley McPherson, Jordan Bray, Russ and Adam Bray, Madison Gregory, Brandon, Nicholas, Ava and Colton Hill.  Louise Wescott Hill has left us, and we, her family and friends, are all the poorer because of her death. She, however, would want us all to think of “The Good Times,” both the song that she & her late husband, David, loved to dance to, and the good times that we all shared with her and David and their children, Gwen, Helen, David, Jr. (“Duck”), and her extended family. “For the Good Times,” her mantra, was on a plaque in her kitchen where everyone could see it.  Louise was born in Manteo where she shared many good times with her family and her friends. However, she met the love of her life, David, and she lived her adult life in Elizabeth City on Raleigh Street. Louise believed that love does not exclude; love includes. She could make anyone feel better with her loving smile, her humor, her love for others. Numerous people were “raised” by Louise and David who ran Hill’s Confectionary for years and years. They fed many a teenager, loved many a person, and opened their hearts and their door to all who came to “the town’s meeting place.” She and David moved back to her beloved Dare County where Louise and he relished the sun, the sea, and the “good times” with her family, friends, and her “ adopted” family. Sitting on her porch at Chicahauk, enjoying conversation, and feeding her red fox friends was something she loved.   Life is meant to be enjoyed and Louise made sure everyone around her knew that. Any little thing was cause for a celebration. She would throw a party on short notice, and would provide, at times, the entertainment: “the rabbit dance” – a dance, which was popular in her youth, being a favorite.   Her house and heart were always open to her friends and family. Labor Day, Thanksgiving, birthdays and the 4th of July, which always included a parade around Riverside and back to Raleigh Street. She especially enjoyed watching her beloved “Tar Heels” play and win in the ACC Tournament. Celebrations of these events will still be “good times” for those of us who loved her, but won’t ever be the same, without our beloved Louise Wescott Hill.   Funeral services will be conducted Friday, July 3, 2009 at 2:00 p.m. at the City Road United Methodist Church by Rev. Charles McKenzie. Burial will follow in Old Hollywood Cemetery. The family will receive friends at Twiford Funeral Home, Memorial Chapel, 405 East Church St. in Elizabeth City, NC on Thursday evening from 7:00 until 8:30 p.m. and also immediately following the Church Service in the Fellowship Hall of the Church. All other times, the family will be at the residence of her daughter, Gwen Bray, 1323 Horner Street in Elizabeth City, NC.  Twiford Funeral Homes, Memorial Chapel, 405 East Church Street, Elizabeth City, NC, is assisting the Hill family.  (The Coastland Times [Manteo, NC] – Thursday, July 2, 2009; pg. 10A)
