Marion "Claude" Ledford, 79, of Leicester, went to be with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, Tuesday, January 8, 2019.

Claude owned a successful construction company. He took pride in providing a job well done, one that he left a bit of his heart and soul in each time.

He was an active member of Bethesda Baptist Church. He loved studying the word of God and left his family a Godly heritage.

Claude was preceded in death by his wife of 53 years, Joyce Williams Ledford; his daughter, Pam Ledford; his son-in-law, Jerry Rhew; and his brother, Bill Ledford.

Surviving are his wife, Freda Ledford; daughter, Donna Rhew; son, Jay Ledford; granddaughters, Heather Hudgins (husband Darin), April Fore (husband Bryan), and Miranda Turbyfill (husband Chad); 10 great-grandchildren; many step children and grandchildren; and sisters Faye Mathis and Sally Austin.

Funeral services for Mr. Ledford will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Friday, January 11, 2019, in the chapel of Trinity Baptist Church of Asheville. Rev. Chad Edwards and Pastor Allen Rash will officiate. Interment will follow at Pisgah View Memorial Park.

The family will receive friends from 12:00 to 2:00 p.m. Friday at the church, prior to the service.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Bethesda Missionary Baptist Church, PO Box 1357, Candler, NC 28715.
