MOCKSVILLE - Mr. Kelly Nathaniel Ward, 72, of Foster Dairy Road, passed away peacefully with his children by his side on Tuesday, March 8, 2022, at Forsyth Medical Center in Winston-Salem. He was born on February 10, 1950, in Davie County, to the late Owen Franklin and Opal Louise Foster Ward. Kelly was one of the hardest working men you would ever meet. He was a Dairy Farmer in Davie County for approximately 17 years. Later, he started his own lawn care business, Ward's Lawn Service and after retirement he worked with Cozart's Handyman Services. When he wasn't mowing grass, you could bet he was out riding one of his Harley's. Kelly loved the outdoors and enjoyed going to the river fishing. He loved spending time with his children and grandchildren, especially watching them ride their dirt bikes and just spending time with them outside. The grandkids always loved Pawpaw’s house because he would always have them chocolate chip cookies. Kelly loved the occasional family gatherings as he was always ready to fellowship with everyone and enjoy the home cooked meal and desserts. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by a sister, Martha Jo Ward. Survivors include two children, Samatha Whitaker (Eric Godbey) of Mocksville and Matt Ward (Samantha) of Advance; five grandchildren, Jacob Whitaker and Brysen Godbey of Mocksville, Bridget Wood, Connor Vannoy, and Cade Ward all of Advance; a brother, Gene Ward (Nancy); a sister, Linda Adams (Alford) all of Mocksville; and several nieces and nephews. The family would like to thank all the doctors, nurses, and additional staff of ICU 2nd floor for the upmost care and attention that was given to Kelly during his stay at Forsyth Medical Center. A funeral service will be conducted at 2 p.m. Friday, March 11, at Eaton Funeral Chapel, with Rev. Chris Cantrell and Rev. Mike Duffield officiating. Interment will follow in Smith Grove United Methodist Church Cemetery. The family will receive friends from 12:30 to 2 p.m. Friday, prior to the service. Memorials may be considered for Smith Grove United Methodist Church Cemetery Fund, 3492 US Hwy 158, Mocksville, NC 27028.
