Ronald "Ronnie" L. Hundley, Sr.

*INCLEMENT WEATHER UPDATE*

Funeral service will be held at 2pm on Saturday, at Wilkerson Funeral Home

Ronald Lee Hundley Sr, 78, went to be with the Lord January 17, 2022.

Funeral services will be held at 2PM on Saturday, January 22, 2022, at Wilkerson Funeral Home with Rev. Nina Miller officiating. Burial will follow at Evergreen Memory Gardens. The family will receive friends on Thursday evening at Wilkerson Funeral Home from 6:00-8:00PM and other times at the home of his daughter, Lee Ann Anders.


Ronnie was born October 10,1943 to the late Rubin Benjamin “Benny” and Georgia Handy Hundley. He was a 1962 graduate of Wentworth High School, where upon graduating from Appalachian State University, he returned serving many years as a high school math teacher, girls basketball coach, and vice principal. Teaching was his heart and calling in this life. In 1977, he became a full-time rural letter carrier for the Reidsville Post Office where he enjoyed working and made many lifelong friends. After retiring with 25 years of service, he then returned to teaching, working a short time at Reidsville Senior High School and later at Rockingham Community College. Nearly every time he went out, someone would come by to say “Hey, Mr. Hundley!” His family would then get to hear stories of how proud he was of his students.

Ronnie was a devoted Christian. He modeled the example that Jesus set before us to be a servant to others. He had a love for people, never met a stranger, and once he knew you, you quickly became a friend for life. He was a member of Bethlehem United Methodist Church where he had attended since his childhood. He served as a lay minister and Sunday School teacher, sang in the choir, served many years on the Board of Directors, and loved attending the annual conferences at Lake Junaluska. He could always be found at any church function and until his health failed, he spent many hours visiting the sick and those that were no longer able to attend services. He loved his church and his church family.

His family spent many, many hours listening to his “tales”, as he called them. Tales from his childhood, from the many years spent farming with his brother R.B. and his father-in-law Robbie Jones; tales from his college days at ASU and from years spent coaching girls high-school basketball; tales of how proud he was of his wife, his children and his grandchildren, and tales of the many wonderful friendships he had made through the years. We will miss those tales.

Along with his parents, he was preceded in death by his sister Linda Miller and his two best friends, Ronald McCollum Sr. and Richard Greenlaw.

Left to cherish his memory are his loving wife of 53 years, Barbara “Bobbie” Jones Hundley; children Lee Ann Anders and husband Kevin, Ronald L Hundley Jr and wife Sally, Kenneth Hundley and wife Angela; grandchildren Jacob Anders and wife Haley, Sarah Hundley and Ronald L Hundley III (Cub); brothers Rubin (R.B.) Hundley and wife Hazel, Milton Hundley and wife Linda; sister Rowena Shinault; brother-in-law, David Miller; his loyal four legged friend, Buddy, and a large extended family.


We would like to thank the staff at DaVita Kidney Care for the care they provided over the past 3 years as well as the ICU staff at Annie Penn Hospital, and Dr Courage Emokpae for the compassionate care they have shown to our family.

In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to Bethlehem United Methodist Church, 1891 Bethlehem Church Rd, Reidsville, NC 27320.

We are so sorry to learn about Ronnie, he was such a dear, special friend! He was the one instructor that I had who really made sense of algebra and I had just about given up on that subject. Our prayers and thoughts are with you in these difficult times!

Barbara and Family, In your sadness you can rejoice in knowing Ronnie is well once again and in the more immediate presence of his Lord and Savior. I knew him as a wonderful teacher and lay speaker. I am sure he held the record at Wentworth Church for the times he served as our lay speaker. Ronnie was a most dedicated and humble worker for the Kingdom. "Well done, good and faithful servant...enter into the joy of thy Lord." May the Lord comfort and sustain you all.
