Always Remembered

Photo of Ronnie Medlin  - 1946-2021

Ronnie Medlin of Haywood County passed away unexpectedly, but peacefully in his sleep the morning of Wednesday, September 22, 2021.

He was a faithful and loving husband of 50 years to wife Linda, a proud father to Ronna and Sean and an absolute rock star to his grandchildren, Ryan, Jessica, Kiana, Brandon, Andrew and Taylor.

Ronnie was preceded in death by his parents, Henry and Annie Medlin who had resided in Canton and is survived by his sister, Dianne.

Following his retirement from Champion International, Ronnie enjoyed his days of “ loafing” around town, tinkering in the garage and reading.  He was a wealth of knowledge, knowing a little bit about everything and constantly entertaining family with stories.

 A private family service will be held at a later date for Ronnie to be laid to rest at Oak Grove Baptist Church Cemetery where he was a member of the church.

In lieu of flowers, please support the Wake Forest Burn Center, Medical Center Blvd., Winston Salem, NC 27157.  It was because of their great care that we were able to receive 19 extra years with Ronnie that truly changed the course of our family.

Crawford / Ray Funeral Home and Cremation Service is honored to be caring for the Medlin family.   

Condolences from family and friends

My deepest sympathy to nLinda and all of Ronnie's family.

Sean and Linda, I was sorry to hear of Ronnie’s passing away unexpectedly. I remember when he had the accident that put him in the burn center. How he and you suffered those weeks and months. A lot of tears, fears and pain. After all that God blessed him with a peaceful passing. Go to sleep and wake up in the arms of Jesus. Hallelujah. You will all see him again. May the Lord comfort you and your family as only He can. Love and prayers,

So sorry to hear of Ronnie's passing. We went from first grade at the old North Canton Elementary School through graduation at Canton High School in 1964. I can still remember some of the good times we had in class and playing ball in physical education classes. My thoughts and prayers are with Linda and the family during this difficult time. Here for you!
