Billy Lee Gunnoe

DANESE — Billy Lee Gunnoe, 70, went to be with the Lord on Feb. 2, 2014, after a long illness.

Billy was born May 19, 1943, in Greenbrier County, Rainelle, to Leland and Helen Gunnoe.

Billy was a loving husband, devoted father, and loving brother.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Leland E. and Helen M. Gunnoe; an infant brother, Larry Gunnoe; sisters, Barbara Moorman of Virginia Beach, Va. and Berneice Queen of Galax, Va.; a daughter, Darleen A. Gunnoe of Smithfield, Pa.; grandson, Alexander D. Gunnoe of Meadow Bridge; brother-in-law, Gary Martin of Springdale, W.Va.; nephew, Steven Martin of Springdale; brother-in-law, Billy Joe Cook and Rita Windon of Charmco, W.Va., daughter-in-law mother who Bill dearly loved.

Those left to cherish his memories are: his wife of 40 years, Nancy Gunnoe of Danese; daughter, Donna L. (Gunnoe) Tranberg and her husband, Jerry of Whitehall, Wis.; daughter, Diane M. (Gunnoe) Rogers and her husband, Jeff Rogers of Buckhannon, W.Va.; son, Billy L. Gunnoe and his wife, Lisa of Dunbar, Pa.; son, Bruce Gunnoe and his wife, Michelle of McClellandtown, Pa.; son, Randy Gunnoe and his wife, Jennifer (Windon) Gunnoe of Charmco; son, Robert (Rob) Gunnoe and his wife, Meranda (Ward) Gunnoe of Meadow Bridge; his grandchildren: Brea and Dalton Gunnoe of Dunbar, Pa., Abby and Bruce Gunnoe of McClellandtown, Pa., Joshua Kayser of Whitehall, Wis., Aaron Sellers of Buckhannon, W.Va., Andrew J. Gunnoe of Meadow Bridge, Aurora M. Gunnoe of Charmco, W.Va.; Jennifer’s father, Bud Windon of Charmco, W.Va., Meranda’s parents, Rex and Melinda Ward of Meadow Bridge; sisters, Betty Allen and her husband, Jim Allen of Shady Spring, Beverly (Sue) Polen of Parish, Fla., Bonnie Martin of Summersville, W.Va. and Bonita Shinault and Harold of Hillsville, Va.

Bill was a Christian, read his Bible daily and tuned into his favorite TV ministry programs to feed his soul. He gave his heart and soul to Christ many years ago. He never forgot that without God, we are nothing. His family, friends and others who knew him well, appreciated that: He was true to his word, his honesty, and his knowledge in various areas. Second only to the love for his Lord, was the love for his wife and children and family members. He treasured the fact he was going to be with Jesus although it broke his heart that he had to leave his wife, children and other family members until they can all join him someday in Heaven. In heaven he will rejoice with the family and friends gone before him.

 Bill worked as an auto mechanic for many years in Maryland and Washington, D.C. areas, drove coal truck and eventually settled down as a sort-of horse whisperer; he loved his horses, any size, shape, age or breed. He loved them one and all. Not sure he ever met a horse he didn’t love. He enjoyed his tractors, cutting hay in the summer; loved to cut/rack/bale hay more than any man ever known. He loved to trade and swap for just about anything. He enjoyed the company of his many friends, some who visited him regular such as Mike and Teresa Gilkerson of Layland. Mike was his best buddy in the hayfield; some others include but not limited to: Jerry C., Gary D., Backus, William H. and too many to list.

Bill wanted everyone to know our Lord and Savior ... That’s where the true meaning in life lies for all of us.

John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son”

God bless him and keep him.

Service will be 2 p.m. Friday, Feb. 7, 2014, at Wallace & Wallace Chapel in Rainelle, with Pastor Steve Martin officiating. Burial will follow in Wallace Memorial Cemetery, Clintonville.

Friends may visit with the family from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday evening at the funeral home.

Arrangements entrusted to Wallace & Wallace Funeral Home of Rainelle.
