Edmund P. HuntleyMay 11, 1925 ~ December 25, 2017 (age 92)
Morven – Mr. Edmund P. Huntley, 92, passed away peacefully on Christmas Day, 2017, at Presbyterian Hospital in Charlotte, NC.
Graveside services with Masonic Funeral Rites will be held at 1:00PM Thursday, December 28, 2017 at Bethel Cemetery. The family will greet friends following the service.
Edmund was born in Anson County on May 11, 1925, a son of the late George Huntley and Mary Pratt Huntley. He graduated local public schools and went on to a long and fruitful career with the American Tobacco Corp. Edmund was quick to point out that he brought the very first pouch of the very popular chewing tobacco, Red Man, to Anson County.
Edmund also had quite a distinguished career as an auctioneer. He was very proud to hold the 16th license ever issued by the NC Auctioneer Licensing Board and to have served as President of the Auctioneers Association of NC. In 2011, he was recognized for his many contributions to auctioneering and inducted into the NC Auctioneers Hall of Fame.
Edmund also enjoyed cattle farming and living in the Bethel Community. He was a member of Bethel United Methodist Church but was perhaps best known as a loving husband, father and grandfather.
Edmund is survived by his son, Eddie Huntley (Ellen) of Norwood; two grandchildren, Parsons Huntley and Katie Paige Huntley also of Norwood; a sister, Lela Flax Huntley Mueller of Houston, TX; and a very special friend, Pam Vernon of Wadesboro. In addition to his parents, Ed was preceded in death by his wife, Joan D. “Tot” Huntley; and two brothers, Robert “Bobby” Huntley and William “Billy” Huntley.
The family suggests that memorials be made to the Bethel Cemetery Fund, c/o Margie Leonard, PO Box 374, Morven, NC 28119.
