Mr. Herman Wilburn Leamon, 90, passed away at his residence on March 9, 2019. He was born on September 9, 1928 to Myrtle Hartness Leamon and James Hillery Leamon in Yadkin County. Herman served in the National Guard Reserves and retired from R.J. Reynolds. A member of First Baptist Church in King, he loved the Lord, served in prison ministry, and easily shared his testimony.

More than anything, Herman was a devoted family man. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his first wife, Edna Leamon; a son, Mark Leamon; brothers, Roy Lee and Larry Leamon; and sister, Mary Elizabeth Willard. Surviving are his loving wife, Sandy Leamon; daughters, Linda Carlsen (Craig) and Cindy Cates (Ken); grandchildren, Jacob Carlsen (Isabel), Casey Cates (Brian), and Logan Jones; great grandchildren, Daniel Carlsen and Sadie Grace Light; and sister-in-law, Jan Leamon.
