“Sad is the parting, no one can tell: So sudden on earth the sorrow fell,
The blow was hard, the shock severe; To part with one we love so dear.
Dearer still, as days depart; Our loved one’s memory will forever live within our hearts!”
CURTIS LEE PONTON, the oldest of five children, was born in Northampton County, North Carolina on Monday, July 29th, 1946 to the parentage of the late Elmo and Alma Ponton.
‘Bill’, as he was fondly called by his loving family and friends, was educated in the Northampton County Public Schools. In 1969, he enlisted in the United States Army. During his time of service to his country, he was awarded 6 medals before being Honorably Discharged in 1974. After his discharge, he returned home and became gainfully employed with Henry Ricks Farms of Seaboard, North Carolina, until his retirement. After which, he began enjoying his hobbies of hunting, fishing and mechanical work. Upon his special talents he made homemade grills. He was definitely a jack of all trades.
