On the morning of Wednesday, April 28, 2021, Mr. Roscoe M. Penland, age 74 of Nebo, made the peaceful transition into his eternal home at his residence. The son of the late Arnold and Virgie Penland, he was born in Yancey County on July 24, 1946
A playful and youthful spirit, Roscoe was known for his humor and was always able to put a smile on your face. He enjoyed many things in life especially going to Carolina Hemlocks and spending time near the water. An excellent automotive mechanic by trade, Roscoe had a passion for working on cars. In his younger years, he enjoyed playing his guitar. A devoted friend, he was always true to his word. Through the years, Roscoe made many friends whom he enjoyed, but his biggest love was for his family. He was very loved and loved those around him, and his family and friends will hold his memories in their hearts forever.
Roscoe was preceded in death by, in addition to his parents, one sister, Marilyn Hensley.
Left to cherish his precious memories are his beloved daughters, Penny Williams, Deborah Brittian, and Jennifer Montoya; three siblings, Calvin, Jerry and Kathy Penland; eleven grandchildren, Alyissa, Thalia, Isaiah, Brooklynn, Breelynn, Bentley, Cody, Priscilla, Chad, Derik and Aniya. He also leaves behind six great grandchildren, a nephew, Jimmy; as well as his best friend, Kevin Dalton, and special friends, Kassandra Adkins and Dwan Logan.
