Dawson Hunter Maness, 16,  passed away Tuesday, September 22, 2020.   

 

Dawson was a native of Moore County and a student at North Moore High School.  He was a loving son and brother.   His family and friends were very important to him and he enjoyed time spent with them.  Dawson loved the outdoors and anytime spent outside was the best time for him.  Hunting and fishing were some of his favorite pastimes, especially sharing those times with his father and brother.  He hunted deer, doves, ducks and any body of water was a place to try out his fishing abilities.  He liked to fish at the beach but loved fishing on the lake at Tillery, Badin or Jordan.  Dawson would have been considered quiet to some folks but if the conversation was about fishing or hunting then he was ready to talk.  He also enjoyed riding dirt bikes and ATVs with his friends. Dawson was preceded in death by grandfather: Monroe Maness  

 

Dawson is survived by parents: Teddy and Rita Scott Maness; sister: Dana Maness; brother: Daniel Maness; grandparents: John and Louise Scott, Linda Maness; aunt: Rosanne Monroe; uncle: Travis Scott; many cousins and friends.

 

Graveside service will be 2:00 PM, Saturday, September 26,  2020 at Bascom Chapel United Methodist Church Cemetery with the Reverend Rebecca Chapman and Reverend Vic Hill officiating.  The family will receive friends from 6 to 8 PM, Friday, September 25, 2020 at Kennedy Funeral Home and at other times at the home. Please remember suggested COVID 19 precautions.

 

Kennedy Funeral Home is honored to serve the Maness Family.
