Bobby’s Life Sketch…
We’ll always remember that special smile, That caring heart, that warm embrace you you always gave us.
You being there for us through good and bad times, No matter what. We’ll always remember you, Dad,
Because there’ll never be another one to replace you in our hearts and the love we’ll always have for you.
The life of Bobby William Lundy began on Sunday, September 10, 1944 in Boykins, Virginia. He was born to the parentage of the late Joseph Lundy, Sr. and Bertha Lee Whitfield Lundy Hicks.
While a native of Southampton County, Bobby later in life moved to Staten Island, New York where he met the love of his life, Mary Elizabeth Edwards. After a lengthy courtship, they finally decided to unite in holy matrimony and their marriage spanned for over many years.
As Bobby stayed far away from his family for a long time while in New York, it was always a delightful joy of his siblings, nieces and nephews to see him when he returned home driving his big long cadillacs getting out of his car dancing and embracing his family with laughter, love, and big hugs. It was nothing like our “Uncle Bob.”
Having God as an integral part of his life, Bobby was baptized at an early age at Shiloh Baptist Church in Boykins, Virginia, but later worshipped and became a member of Rising Star Baptist Church in Branchville, Virginia.
During Bobby’s matriculation from Virginia to New York, he saw the need to provide for his family and became employed at Staten Island University Hospital, where he retired after 23 years of employment. After retirement, he decided to move his family back to Southampton County. He continued to work many other jobs to include Hancock Peanut Company, Courtland, Virginia and Phillip Morris in Richmond, Virginia.
Wings...Are carved surfaces that lift…Wings enable you to soar beyond all your self-imposed restrictions and take you to the lofty heights you dare to dream of. Wings can offer protection and comfort, as in “under one’s wing.” Wings remind us of the angels that guard and guide us from above, and of those angels that walk among us. Wings remind us that it is in our power to be an angel to the next person, who may just happen to need one. Anything is possible, when you have wings. On Monday, August 24, 2020, while in the serenity of his sister’s home, Bobby William Lundy, 75, peacefully gained his wings and entered into eternal rest. He is now reunited with his loved ones who preceded him in death: wife, Mary Edwards-Lundy, daughter, Bobbie Jean Carter, great grandmother, Cornelia Jane Evans Whitfield, two sisters, Elizabeth “Sis” Boone, and Melvyn Lundy Rimm, and grandson, Tristin R. Knight.
It’s sometimes hard to understand why these things have to be. Our sad hearts seek the answer, but it’s not for us to see we can only trust in God and know that in some way , It’s all a part of His great plan, we’ll understand someday. We who remain to honor his life and legacy are: Daughters; Gwendolyn J. Gay of Chesapeake, Virginia and Barbie Jo Day (Richard) of Margarettsville, North Carolina; stepdaughter, Louise Williams of Staten Island New York, Siblings; Joseph Lundy, Jr. (Mildred) of Branchville, Virginia, Mae Cavion Flythe of Pendleton, North Carolina, Johnny White of Emporia, Virginia and Bernice Grant of Murfreesboro, North Carolina, Grandchildren; Hakeem Dale, LaToya Williams, Ashley Williams and NiQuajah Simmons, nine great-grandchildren; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, in-laws and friends.
Memories are treasures no one can steal,
Death is the heartache nothing can heal,
Some may forget you now that you are gone,
But we shall remember you no matter how long.
