Tony Eugene Ledford, 61, has gone to be with the Lord at the Davidson County Hospice, losing his short battle with lung cancer, on Thursday, October 4th, 2018 at 9:23 in the evening, surrounded by his family.

Tony was a Master Electrician servicing the Greater Greensboro area for over 40 years. He was an avid hunter and salt water angler, who’s favorite place in the world to be was on the water. He lived his life everyday for his grandchildren. His childhood best friend was Tony Atkins of Oak Ridge, NC. He had a natural ability to put others needs before his own, dropping what was needed to help others. He was much respected and loved by all survivors and friends.
