Ronald Delano Tedder

    Ronald Delano Tedder, 63, earned his eternal reward on February 18, 2024 surrounded by his loving family. Born in Wilson on June 28, 1960, Ronald was the son of the late Delano R. Tedder and Vonda Lee Barnes Tedder.

    For many years, Ronald worked as a roofer. Many people would call on him for his quality and exceptional work. In his spare time, Ronald could be seen on the back of a horse or by the water with a fishing pole in hand. Ronald was a faithful believer in Jesus Christ. He was faithful to church and loved worshipping the Lord.

    Family was paramount in Ronald’s life. His love for his family knew no bounds and each moment spent together with his family was a memory he would cherish forever. He loved having the whole family around, especially his grandbabies. Ronald will be remembered as a loving husband, father, brother, and of course, grandfather.
