Rev. Ronald Lee Blakley Obituary

Reverend Ronald Lee Blakley, 81, retired minister, unexpectedly went home to be with the Lord on October 30, 2023.  Rev. Blakley was a dedicated minister of God serving nearly 40 years in the ministry. He was the pastor of Holloways Baptist Church, Southmont NC; Silver Springs Baptist Church, Norwood NC; Deep River Baptist Church, Ramseur NC and Southside Baptist Church of Thomasville NC. He led two of the churches through building programs.

Reverend Blakley led untold number of people to Jesus Christ and he always put God and family first in his life and ministry. He believed the Bible was the unchanging Word of God which stands as the final authority for present day and eternity. He lived each day knowing that Christ’s return is imminent and as followers we must walk by faith.  He loved his family; one of his greatest joys was spending time together.
