Edward "Pete" Ager

Edward Dale “Pete” Ager III., 37, of Vass, passed away suddenly on Tuesday Aug. 6, 2019.

Born on Valentine’s Day, 1982 in Aurora, Colo., he was the son of Edward Dale Ager Jr. and Sharon Ager. A military move brought Pete to Moore County when he was 7 years old. He attended Vass-Lakeview Elementary School and was a graduate of Union Pines High. He went on to attend Sandhills Community College. While growing up, he was active in the Boy Scouts and received a black belt in tae kwon do. He later ran his own business, “Ager Pro – Painting.” Pete had a gift for music. He played in bands in high school and as a young adult and was featured in Rolling Stone Magazine. Pete was a kind soul and humanitarian. A poet and romantic with a talent for prose; he was a wordsmith. Much of his inspiration came from his love for the outdoors, nature and his unrivaled love for his children.

Pete is survived by his parents Ed and Sharon. He is also survived by his sister, Sandra Denese Rhodes, her husband Chris, and their children: Aislinn Willow and Connor Sonny. He is also survived by fiancee, Laura Jenkins. He was the loving and doting father of Makayla Elizabeth Ager McCann, Lydia Aspen Ager, Scarlett Dahlia Ager and Atticus Fox Ager. He was the grandson of Eva Ager and is survived by many caring aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
