What wonderful memories I have of Uncle "E"! He had a great sense of humor, a generous spirit and a wonderful heart. So many people love and will miss him, but we are thankful for the legacy of faith, love and laughter he leaves behind.

I was a student in Mr. Pardue's American History class at Glen Oaks high school in the late 1960's. He was a great man & teacher who taught history the way it should be taught. He really enjoyed teaching us the Civil War portion of american history. Mr. Pardue was a very honorable man and heavan will be a better place with him in it. I will close by using a phrase that he ended his class with on many days and it was "Good Night Irene". Take care my friend, Harry Breeden

Uncle A.E. was a man of integrity and honor. I do remember his passion for wanting the same for his country, government and mankind. I know the angels sang and celebrated joyously when all the Pardue men and ma maw went
home to be with their Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Celebrate his life and know that my heart is with my family today. My love to all of you.

I remember Mr. Pardue from his days as a social studies teacher at Glen Oaks High School. He was a wonderful teacher and a nice man. All of his students always respected him for his knowledge, fairness, and ethics. There are few teachers who were his equal! My condolences to his wife, children, grandchildren, gr-grandchildren, and extended family.
