Remembrance services for Warren C. Judge III, 65, of Kill Devil Hills, a Dare County commissioner who was running on the Democratic ticket for N.C. House of Representatives District 6 seat, will be held this weekend.
Judge died Nov. 5 following a brief illness and hospitalization in Sentara Norfolk General Hospital, Norfolk, Va.
The family will receive visitors from 6 to 8 p.m. Saturday in St. Andrews By-the-Sea Episcopal Church, Nags Head. A celebration of Judge’s life will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday at the same church.
Burial will take place immediately following the service at Southern Shores cemetery.
Friends and relatives are invited to join the family for a reception at Duck Woods Country Club, Southern Shores, immediately following the burial.
Born, Nov. 30, 1950, Judge was the Democratic candidate for the N.C. House of Representatives District 6 seat, which includes Dare, Hyde, Washington and Beaufort counties. Though he died three days before the election, his wife, Theresa “Tess” Strickler Judge, had stepped up at the behest of the District 6 Democratic party executive committee to take his place should he win the election.
However, Beverly Boswell-R, Kitty Hawk, on Nov. 8 captured the popular vote 21,805 to 20,246.
In lieu of flowers, the Judge family requests that donations be made to All Saints Episcopal Church Building Fund, 40 Pintail Trail, Southern Shores, NC 27949, or to the Outer Banks Community Foundation Disaster Relief Fund, 13 Skyline Road, Kitty Hawk, NC 27949.
Born in Queens, New York, Judge was a son of Ruth and Warren Cameron Judge, Jr. and raised in Charlottesville, Va.
In addition to his wife of 42 years, Judge is survived by his children Montague and his wife Katherine Dixon, Michael Dixon, Mary Elizabeth (Dixon) Levy, and Mark and his wife Wendy Dixon.
He is survived by two brothers, Carl and his wife Maren Judge and Robert Judge, and a sister Ruth, wife of Doug Bridgeforth; and 10 grandchildren and 13 nieces and nephews.
