Hearldine Gunnoe, 61 of Beckley, WV, formally of Naoma, WV, went to be with the Lord on May 10, 2020, after a courageous fight with fungal pneumonia. He was born on July 10, 1958, and was the son of the late Fred and Zella (Osborne) Gunnoe.
Hearldine faithfully attended the Cornerstone Freewill Baptist Church in Crab Orchard, WV. He took pleasure in the simple things of life. He had a great love for God, his wife, and his family. One of his most cherished times was family vacations. He was best known for his ready smile and gentle soul.
Hearldine is survived by his loving wife of 35 years, Susan Ackley Gunnoe; sisters, Coetta (Richard) Toler of Glen Daniel, Retha Armstrong of Pineville, Lilly Cook of Beckley, Joselene Stewart of Oceana and his twin, Geraldine Aliff of Georgia; brothers, Dale (Debbie) of Fairdale, Danny (Carol) of Lynchburg, Ricky of Fairdale and Ronnie (Helen) of California; Brothers-in-law William (Patricia) Ackley of Imperial, PA and Ray Ackley of Midway, PA; Niece Michelle (Richard) Leas and daughter Madyson; Nephew Dustin Ackley and numerous nieces and nephews on the Gunnoe side.
According to his wishes, Hearldine is being cremated and a private family gathering to honor his life will be held at a later time.
The family would like to thank Raleigh General Hospital and Ruby Memorial Hospital for their dedication in trying to find a treatment for Hearldine and their efforts to ease the separation between him and his family during this especially trying time.
