Mr. Albert F. Macklin, 91, passed away peacefully on Monday, January 9, 2023 in his home surrounded by family. Albert was born July 4, 1931 in Mineola, New York but was reared in Boydton, Virginia. He was the son of the late Talmadge and Jean Macklin and a brother of the late Roslyn Macklin and Bessie Macklin Ellis.

Left to cherish his memories are his wife, Jocelyn Macklin; his two daughters, Zeryn Macklin and Samantha Macklin of Goldsboro; his brother, Douglas Calap Macklin of Goldsboro; two sisters, Joann Macklin Stevenson and Alfreda Carson of Boydton, Virginia and a vast number of loving nephews, nieces, cousins and friends. 


Albert retired as a Chief Master Sergeant after serving 20 years in the US Air Force. Albert also retired in 1991 after working 20 years at the Boystown Correctional Facility in New York. Following his retirement, he relocated to Goldsboro, NC and made this his permanent residence until his passing. 


Albert took great pride in maintaining his yard and growing his fruitful garden in which he shared his harvest with loved ones and members of the community.
