Thomas Caverly, 55, a case worker at Baptist Children’s Homes of North Carolina Kinston campus since August 2007, and his wife Debbie, 51, were killed in a two-car collision Sept. 22.
“The Baptist Children’s Homes’ family across the state is saddened by this tragic news,” said BCH President Michael C. Blackwell. “Tom, with the support of Debbie, was dedicated to the ministry of helping children and families at BCH. Our hearts and prayers go out to the family.”
The Caverlys are survived by daughter Michelle, a former BCH child care worker, as well as their son David and his wife and their two children.
The accident occurred shortly after noon Monday (Sept. 22) when the Caverly’s vehicle collided with another car on U.S. 70 a short distance from Kennedy Home. The Caverlys were pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the other vehicle sustained non-life threatening injuries.
Funeral arrangements are pending.
“We ask everyone to be in prayer for the family as well as Baptist Children’s Homes staff members during this difficult time,” Blackwell said.
