Day is done, Gone the sun,
From the lake, From the hill, From the sky.
All is well, Safely rest, God is nigh.
Ronny Andrew Templeton, Jr., affectionately called ‘Temp” was born in Statesville, NC on June 22, 1972. He was raised in Harmony, NC by his mother Mary Ann Gaither Parsons. Ronny entered into eternal rest on Wednesday, June 26, 2019, at the Gordon Hospice House following an extended illness.
He attended Harmony Elementary School, went on to graduate from North Iredell High School in 1990 and began a collegiate experience at Barber Scotia College in Concord, NC. After a year of college, he joined the United States Navy where he served for four years and was honorably discharged. Upon leaving the military he joined the civilian workforce and was most recently employed at Lowes Distribution Center in Olin, NC as a forklift operator. He was preceded in death by his father Ronny Andrew Templeton, Sr., his paternal grandfather Robert Templeton and his maternal grandparents Alton and Mary Gray Gaither.
Ronny shared his life and love with Tonya Clark and family, residing in Mooresville, NC. He enjoyed bowling, playing cards, socializing with family and friends and coordinating outfits. He was a member of Piney Grove AME Zion church in Harmony, NC and served on various choirs there.
In addition to his mother, Mary Ann (William) Parsons, he leaves to cherish the memory of his life, his fiancée, Tonya Clark of the home; a daughter Ranajae Templeton of Charlotte NC, two sons Keenan Dobbins and Carter Weddin, both of Statesville, NC, his paternal grandmother, Lillie Mae Kate Templeton of Statesville, NC, four sisters Daphne Jordan of Gastonia NC, Patrice Templeton of Statesville, NC, Kendyll Parsons and Devin Parsons, both of Monroe, one brother, Justin Parsons of Monroe, NC and a host of aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins. His memory will be fondly carried by those who loved and knew him.
As he sleeps a peaceful sleep,
His memory we will always keep.

Celebration of Life Services will be conducted Sunday, June 30, 2019, at 2:30 p.m. at the Mary B. Bigham Memorial Chapel of Rutledge and Bigham Funeral Home. Reverend John Phifer will officiate and burial will follow in the Piney Grove AME Zion Church in Harmony.

I was Ronny's supervisor but he taught me how to do my job! The laughs we had in the RDC will not be forgotten. Over the 2 years that i got to know you, you weren't an employee you were my friend. I'll cherish all the memories and all of the crazy life experiences you told me about, that ended in side busting laughter. You will be missed my friend.

Your friend,
Crystal Hobbs
