I found a few old newspapers in my father's belongings. One being The Charlotte Observer, dated Monday, 25 Nov 1963. From this paper, I transcribed all of the "North Carolina And South Carolina Deaths And Funerals", the Mecklenburg Obituaries, & other death/funeral information that I saw.
One article I transcribed is: Man Dies Month Before He Is 102 [William David Stoker]
