JC “Carson” Womack III, 84, died on Saturday, December 4, 2021 at Sovah Health after his health deteriorated for several years.
Carson was born in Danville on October 18, 1937, to Martha Cecile Cox Womack and JC “Spinks” Womack.
He lived all his life in the Danville area, but had many happy times as a child on his grandfather’s farm in Caswell County.
He attended George Washington High School and graduated with the Class of 1956. He enlisted in the US Air Force from 1957 to 1963 and served in Korea.
After the war, he became auctioneer and member of the Danville fire department. He also worked for Shields Auction Realty as a real estate broker, appraiser and auctioneer for over 40 years. His skills as an auctioneer remained intact even with declining health, and he could still perform on the spot when called upon.
Carson is survived by his wife of 26 years, Lorraine P. Womack of Danville; children, Lincoln Koontz (Jennifer) of Newland, NC and their children, Emily, Andrew, Ember and Eyrie, Logan Koontz (Sarah) of Danville and Lorien Deaton (Michael) of Greensboro, NC, and their son, Rowan. Her brother-in-law, Louis Michael Tate, is also a survivor; his nieces, Lynne Michelle Saiz (Greg) and Jennifer Leigh Tate, all of Bluffton, SC; first cousin, Louis Armistead Womack and his son, Oscar Womack (Ann-Christine) and their children, Louella and Armistead from Lund, Sweden.
He was predeceased by his parents and sister, Dorothy Ellen Womack Tate.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to God’s Pit Crew or Toys for Tots.
A private family service will take place at a later date.
Townes Funeral Home and Crematory, 215 West Main Street, serves the Womack family. Online condolences can be made at www.townesfuneralhome.com
