Mr. Ronnie Lee Hensley, age 82, passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, October 7, 2017 at his home following several years of declining health.  Ronnie was born in McDowell County to the late Lawrence E. and Flora Fowler Hensley on July 11, 1935.  He was a faithful member of Zion Hill Baptist Church.  Ronnie worked for over 20 years at Drexel Heritage and following that worked at Broyhill Furniture and Universal Furniture from which he eventually retired.  Ronnie loved the Lord, his family and friends and his truck.  Everyone who knew him will miss him very much.  His beloved wife, Florence “Tootie” Duncan Hensley, preceded him in death in August of 2014.  Also preceding him in death were two sisters, Maphery Sisk and Aileen Simmons.

 

His devoted daughter, Rhonda A. Hensley of Marion, several nieces, nephews, and great-nieces and great-nephews, and his dear friends, Paul and Frances Baker survive him.
