Welcome to the memorial page for

Bud Godfrey

September 8, 1939 ~ February 13, 2017 (age 77)

Ronnie L. “Bud” Godfrey, age 67, of the Davistown community of Old Fort, went home to be with the Lord on February 13, 2017 at the Memorial Campus of Mission Hospitals in Asheville with his loving family by his side.   Bud was born in Buncombe County on September 8, 1949 to the late Dewey and Althea Carr Godfrey.  Those who knew him appreciated his sense of humor and mischievous, but good-natured picking at them.  His devotion to his family was unquestioned and his love for them was a driving force in his life.  Bud got along with everybody and all who knew and loved this man will miss him very much.


He leaves behind his wife of 46 years, Glenda Davis Godfrey of the home; four children, Gary Godfrey and wife Donna, Michael Godfrey and wife Stephanie, Kimberly Hartwell and husband Joey, and Tommy Godfrey and wife Carolyn, all of Old Fort; three brothers, Billy Godfrey and wife Ruby of Asheville, Johnny Godfrey of Old Fort, and Dean Godfrey and wife Jean of Burnville; a sister, Shirley Key of Asheville; ten grandchildren, three great-grandchildren, and numerous nieces and nephews.


The family will receive friends on Wednesday, February 15, 2017 from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. at Westmoreland Funeral Service and Cremations in Old Fort.  A funeral service will be held on Thursday at 2:00 p.m. at the funeral home in Old Fort with Rev. Donald Hare and Rev. Kenny Schultz officiating.  Burial will follow in the Davistown Free Will Baptist Church Cemetery.  Flowers are appreciated, however, those desiring to make a memorial contribution in his memory are encouraged to consider the National Kidney Foundation Serving the Carolinas at 4819 Park Road, Suite C, Charlotte, NC  28209.
