In memory of
Ronald J. HUNTER
Ronald J. (Scottie) Hunter, 86, of Roanoke, went home to be with the Lord on Sunday, August 4, 2013. He was preceded in death by his first wife, Patricia Hunter; and his second wife, Lou Webb Hunter. Mr. Hunter started his work career with the Virginian Railway until the postmaster of the Mullens West Virginia Post Office recruited him; he worked there at the Mullens Post Office until he retired. He never lost his love for the Virginian Railway and its trains, from this love grew a model railroading hobby which spanned over 50 years. He set up his elaborate displays at many places including the Crossroads Mall and the Transportation Museum of Roanoke. He is survived by his son, R.J. "Ron" Hunter II and his wife, Donna, of Lakeland Fla.; daughter, Jenny Crawford and her husband, Roland, of Annandale; stepdaughter, Zelda Nester, of Roanoke; stepson, Layne Brizendine and his wife, Tracey, of Roanoke; grandchildren, Amy Wiley and her husband, John, Zack Crawford, Ethan Crawford, Chrystal Mosley and her husband, Robert, Emiley Roadarmel and her husband, Mark, James Hunter and his wife, Courtney; and three great-grandchildren. The family would like to acknowledge a wonderful caregiver, Bonnie Thomas, who took excellent care of Scottie during the hours the family needed to be at their jobs. Funeral service will be held 2 p.m. Wednesday, August 7, 2013, at the First Church of God on Hildebrand Road. The Rev. Jim Milner will officiate, and entombment will follow at Blue Ridge Memorial Gardens Mausoleum. The family will receive friend on Tuesday from 6 to 8 p.m. at Oakey's North Chapel, www.oakeys.com .
