Date: 1/4/2019
Location: Thomasville

Mr. David Kirby Groome, 86, of Thomasville passed away Friday, January 4 at Providence Place after an extended illness. He was born May 17, 1932, the son of the late Kirby Asbury Groome and Amy Gertrude Stone Groome. For over 35 years he worked in various positions at Myrtle Desk Company and later retired from the Thomasville School System. He was also a US Army veteran of the Korean Conflict. David loved to rabbit hunt in his younger days and often volunteered his auctioneering services for church and community events…but many people will remember him as a weather fanatic. Folks would reach out to David to get the winter forecast and snow projections. He also was never caught without his favorite Juicy Fruit chewing gum. David was a member of Unity United Methodist Church and later attended Greenwood Baptist Church. Surviving are his wife of 61 years, Margaret Groome; son, Brent David Groome (Dana) of Conway, SC; a granddaughter, Kirby Elizabeth; a grandson, Evan Fletcher; brother, Billy A. Groome (Loretta). He also leaves behind a large extended family of nieces, nephews, and cousins. A funeral service will be held on Tuesday, January 8, 2019 at 11:30 AM at the J.C. Green & Sons Funeral Home Chapel in Thomasville with Pastor Donnie Durham officiating. Interment with military rites provided by the Randolph County Honor Guard will follow in Holly Hill Memorial Park Cemetery. The family will greet friends one hour prior to the service from 10:30 – 11:30 AM at the funeral home. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be directed to The Life Center, 601 W. Center St. Lexington, NC 27292 or to Hospice of the Piedmont, 1801 Westchester Dr. High Point, NC 27262. Online condolences may be sent to

God cares for the brokenhearted; Psalm 34:18 assures us that he is close to them. Psalm 147:3 says: "He heals the brokenhearted; He binds up their wounds." God will sustain you with his "right hand of righteousness" during this difficult time and through each passing day.Isaiah (41:10) Isaiah 41:13; I "am grasping your right hand, the One [God] saying to you,...'I will help you.'" Please accept my sincere condolences. Always remember God loves you and he cares for you!
