Obituary For Alexander Flemings

Mr. Alexander Flemings passed away on January 5,2022.

Alexander “Alex/Flem” was born to M/M Thomas R. and Callie C. Flemings in Roanoke Rapids, NC Halifax County on August 1, 1945. Alex accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior at an early age becoming a member of London Missionary Baptist Church, Roanoke Rapids, NC. His demeanor was so humble as he was often asked if “He was a Minister.” He was easy spirited and polite. It was no mistake that he was born to be a Child of God.

Alex met and married Patricia Bethea on October 5, 1970 and upon this union was the birth of three daughters – Alexis, Alisa, and Dara. He had a strong love bond for his family and was a majestic provider. Alex attended and graduated from NCA&T State University, Greensboro, NC where he received his Bachelor’s Degree in Music Education and his Master’s Degree in Human Resources - Counseling. He had a listening ear and was known for his mediation sessions while employed in management at the US Postal Service. He retired after 30 years of service. Mediations continued both on and off the job, as he was always willing to listen and to assist anyone in any way possible. Having an entrepreneurial spirit, he was a successful owner of Flemings Music Studio where he provided piano lessons and music services. Music has always been his passion, even as a young child sitting at the family piano playing beautifully without one lesson. We knew that it was a God-Given talent. He began playing at his home church until relocating to Greensboro to attend college. Upon arriving, he was known quickly in the city, and began to play at several Greensboro local churches. Over the years, he served as Minister of Music at Trinity, Greensboro Triad Ensemble, East White Oak Missionary Baptist Church and Music Director at his home church, Providence Baptist.

Cherished and fond memories that reflected happiness of Alex are: His Wife of 51 years, Patricia, (3) Daughters, Alexis, Orlando, FL, Alisa, Cummings, GA, and Dara (Tron), Cary, NC; (1) Brother, Ernest (Joyce), Rocky Mt., NC; (1) Sister, Cathy, Whitsett, NC; Sister-in-Laws, Davina Godwin, Smyrna,GA, Lula Flemings, Temple Hills, MD; (1) Aunt, Jennie Melton, Richmond, VA, (6) Grandchildren, Josh and Graylann (Alexis), Ciara and Taylor (Alisa), Dominique and Denel (Dara) , and a host of beautiful nieces, nephews, cousins and additional family members and friends. Preceding Alex in death in addition to his parents and in-laws, M/M David Bethea, are (2) Brothers, Thomas Jr. and Raymond Flemings, Sister-in-Law, Linda Bush and two Brother-in-Laws, Jerry Godwin and Dexter O. Battle.

A service honoring his life will be held on Sunday January 23, 2022 at 2:00 pm. at Providence Baptist Church 1106 Tuscaloosa St. Greensboro NC 27406. Visitation will begin at 1:30 pm.
