German Hoyos-Carvajal Obituary

“When peace like a river, attended my way, when sorrows like sea billows roll.  Whatever my lot, thou hast taught me to say, it is well, it is well, with my soul.”

German Emilio Hoyos-Cervajal entered eternal rest on November 8, 2023, at ECU Health Chowan Hospital in Edenton, North Carolina.

Everyone knows of someone that stands out in the myriad of humanity. That individual who shines bright enough to be noticed by others. That individual who positively influences the lives of everyone they meet because of their good intentions. That's our German...

German lived a life governed by principle and integrity. God our father, bestowed talents and an indelible drive for excellence within our German. Set forth on a journey into a life full of personal challenge.

German Emilio Hoyos was the eldest son of 3 sons and 2 daughters born in Bogota, Colombia, South America. Named in part to carry his father’s name, Emilio. German’s parents - Emilio Hoyos & Leonor Carvajal were joined in marriage at a very young age. The distinguished families of Hoyos y Carvajal genetically blessed all 5 of their children with an array of exceptional qualities...

German Emilio Hoyos excelled in many areas. As the eldest son, he made a valiant attempt to set the bar as high as possible in all areas. An athlete of notable excellence in his childhood and adolescence was only the beginning. German’s academic accomplishments were nothing short of outstanding. His prowess of academic achievement includes student of the year at Pensacola Junior College, a Bachelor’s degree in social work from the University of West Florida, a Master’s degree in Social Work from The University of Georgia, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) licensure, and a PHD for his final accomplishment. Dr. German Emilio Hoyos excelled in all areas of his life.

During and throughout his academic years., German distinguished himself as a proud member of the United States Navy (USN).  Beginning as a humble E-1 and steadily rising up through the ranks. German retired from the USN as a Commander after serving for twenty years.

German’s contributions to family advocacy in the USN were Director of Social Services multiple times at different Naval Bases throughout the world. German attended and contributed at Think Tank Meetings held in Washington DC regularly. In fact, his final assignment was held at the National Security Agency. He distinguished himself there by personally counseling and treating the families that were directly affected by the infamous terrorist attack on the Pentagon on 9/11. Honestly though, German advocated hardest for the average, good willed, hardworking American. He routinely carried a personal case load for families in need during his multiple tenors in his years of practice and administrative duties.

Let us not forget his service in the area of foreign wars. Beginning with the evacuation of Guam. Then his service in 2 separate conflicts in the Gulf War. Although he was incredibly accomplished and dedicated to the field of Social Work.

German was hands on in the battlefield, a true Warrior. Our German lived by the creed that those in need deserved assistance. German fought on several occasions on and off the Battlefield for justice and equality for all deserving. Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 " For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven..."

Finally, it must be noted that German held a belief that God, then family was the essence of existence of the human experience.

Every part of his life was dominated by God's influence upon him to love his fellow person. Especially, the 5 most important people in his life here on earth…

His wife and soul mate Vicki Elaine who was there to meet him in heaven. His one and only beloved daughter Jessica Maria. His beautiful and intelligent granddaughter Abi Elaine. His handsome and loving grandson Anakin Emilio Ikaika. And his compassionate and full of life son by choice Matthew Ryan.

German was the preverbal life of the party, full of the zest for living a life worth living. In his 70 years - German lived at least 140 years of living. His Hobbies and interests are so numerous that it is sufficient to mention he excelled by merit and certifications in all the areas he attempted. A true Renaissance Man.

Thank you German for being all that you were and will continue to be for those who knew you. You were loved by so many people and have touched the lives of those around you. You never met a stranger and loved making new friends wherever you went.

God Bless your soul and may we all meet again one day. May your soul rest at peace and in paradise.  We love you always and will keep you with us in our hearts.

Jessica Maria
