March 26, 1955 - August 10, 2023

Ronald R. Barkley, 68, of Staunton, went to be with the Lord on Thursday, August 10, 2023 at Augusta Health. He was born in Texas on March 26, 1955, a son of the late Tina Barkley.

Ronald attended Jersey City State College. He retired as a mail handler with the United States Postal services where he was a very hard worker and provider for his family. Ronald was a devoted church member of Bethel and Miracle of Faith Seventh Day Adventist Church. He greatly enjoyed bowling, playing football in his college days, and watching basketball on TV. Riding his bicycle, fishing with his children, and working on puzzles were a few of his favorite hobbies. Ronald will be remembered for his devotion and care for his family and friends.

In addition to his mother, Ronald was preceded in death by his son, Jesse Barkley.

Left to cherish his memory is his loving wife of 33 years, Evelyn Jane Barkley; children, Hanna and Jordan Barkley; special friends: Jillian Clark, Lee Johnson, Pastor Jackson, Odis Murray, Joan Carpenter, and Carlos Hernandez and his wife, Carlis; as well as his church family and extended family.

A memorial service will be held at a later date.

Memorial donations may be made in Ronald’s memory to his beloved church.

The family would like to express a heartfelt thank you to the doctors and nurses for their loving care of Ronald; as well as a thank you to his church family for their support during this difficult time.

Arrangements have been entrusted to Charlton and Groome Funeral Home.
