Ronald Edward Seamon
June 29, 1943 – November 18, 2019
Mr. Ronald “Butter” Seamon passed away unexpectedly on Monday, November 18, 2019 at Atrium Health Cabarrus. Born on June 29, 1943 in Rowan County to the late James Lee Seamon and Margaret Alexander Seamon, he was a 1961 graduate of China Grove High School where he was all-county in football his senior year. After high school, Butter spent his career as a carpenter and exceptional brick mason, providing excellent artisanship in all aspects of his work. He took a great deal of pride in building his own home and did the same for any job he undertook.
Butter was a real southern gentleman and had a true servant’s heart and lived his life to serve the Lord. He was an avid hunter and fisherman and loved to talk politics with anyone who would listen. Most of all, he loved his family. They spent Sunday evenings at family gatherings enjoying wonderful family fellowship. He and his precious Brenda attended all of their grandchildren’s sporting events, dance recitals and anything else they were a part of. They could also be found watching their Atlanta Braves on television and he even convinced Brenda to watch the hunting and fishing shows with him. His love for family and for helping others will be remembered always.
Those left to cherish his memory are his loving wife of 52 years, Brenda Smith Seamon of the home; his daughter, Rhonda Seamon Jones and husband, Alan and his son, Todd Edward Seamon and wife, Lisa along with his brothers, Bill Seamon (Grace), Tommy Seamon (Venay), and Jimmy Seamon. He lovingly leaves behind his grandchildren, Ryan Mack Jones, Jared Scott Seamon, Tyler Andrew Seamon and Coralie Elaine Jones.

Funeral service will follow at 2:00pm officiated by Pastor Curtis Goforth. Burial will be at West Lawn Memorial Park in China Grove immediately after the service.

Dear Todd and family, I understand the heavy hearts you all have this day. While I did not know your father, from the sounds of his lovely tribute he raised a son very much in his image, and lives on within each of you. My sincere condolences ~ Donna Preslar
