Obituary of Billy Pope
Billy Todd Pope, 89, of Roanoke County took his last breath here on earth and first breath in Heaven, as he went to be home with the Lord on Thursday, November 29, 2018. His parents, Albert and Mebus Pope, and a brother, Robert A. Pope, preceded him.
Billy was a graduate of William Fleming High School. He served proudly in the United States Air Force and the United States Air Force Reserve. He made many friends through his career involving the selling of automobile parts as Owner / Operator of B & R Auto Parts of Vinton.
Billy was a member of Bonsack Baptist Church and the Seekers Sunday School Class. He was a former member of Villa Heights Baptist Church where he served as a Deacon and on various committees, and enjoyed visiting the homebound and nursing homes where he strived to leave the people with a smile on their face.
Left to cherish his memory are his loving wife of 68 years, Virginia “Jenny” Pope; sons, Michael (Teresa) Pope, Gerald (Pam) Pope; daughter, Jennie (Ronnie) Wood; six precious grandchildren, Todd Pope, Melody Pope, Jason (Jessica) Pope, Brandon Pope, Brian (Caitlin) Wood, Laura Wood and a Great grandchild due in May 2019. Along with a sister, Betty McGee and host of other relatives and friends.
