V.B. Munday passed from this earth to his heavenly home on Sept. 25, 2019, in Hamilton.

A celebration of the life was held Saturday, Sept. 29, at First United Methodist Church of Hamilton. Rev. Samantha Chambers officiated the service with Barbara Sanders, soloist, and Alice Eakins, pianist. Interment was in Oakwood Cemetery.

Mr. Munday was born Jan. 12, 1921, to Julius Edward and Edna Pearl (Stanford) Munday in the Hamilton County community of Shive.

On July 12, 1945, he married Nelda Emily Wagner and had one child, Connie Lynell. After Nelda passed on Aug. 25, 1973, he married Movelda (Swopes) Burks in 1982.

For many years, V.B. owned and operated Munday’s Cleaners under the motto: “Munday’s Cleaners for Sunday’s Clothes.” To young and old alike he was known as the “Lemon Drop Man” due to always-accessible lemon drop candies in the glass jar by the cash register.

V.B. was an active member of First United Methodist Church in Hamilton where he served on the administrative board and various committees and ushered. He was known for his love of God and for his family and friends. His selflessness was apparent to all who knew him.

Nothing tickled him more than a game of Wahoo, 42 or croquet at Grandpa and Grandma Wagner’s farm.

He was preceded in death by his parents, his wife Nelda and eight siblings.

He is survived by daughter Connie; his son-in-law Robert Dale Sills; grandson David Sills and wife Lacey and their daughters Hadley, Hensely and Hollyn; his wife Velda; sister Myrtice (Munday) Phears; brother-in-law Raymond Charles and wife Verlene Wagner; sister-in-law Betty Wagner.

Surviving children include Debra (Burks) Recindus and husband Richard; Dick Burks and wife Renee; Dennis Burks and wife Lou; and Donnie Burks and wife Carrie.

Other survivors include 11 grandchildren, 12 great-grandchildren; and numerous nieces and nephews.

Memorials may be made to the church organization of choice.

Pallbearers were Doyle Munday, Mike Holt, Ronnie Munday, Ronnie Wagner, Cliff Crumley, Trevor Tumlinson, David Sills and Payne Burks.

Honorary pallbearers were Dale Munday, Butch Munday, Thurlow Rowe Jr., Ricky Stagner, Raymond Wagner, Jack Sauer, Rick Schneider, Zachary Burks, Ryan Burks and Aaron Burks.
