Mr. Lemuel Donta Bunn, 40, of Roanoke Rapids, North Carolina.
On Thursday, August 11, 1977, on a beautiful summer day, God blew the breath of life into Lemuel “Donta” Bunn, born to Wonda Bunn Rice and William Boyd in Halifax, North Carolina.
At the peak of a summer Tuesday Morning, God decided it was time for him to leave this earthly world and gain his wings.
Lemuel, also known as Donta, accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior in September 2017 at Parrish Chapel Church in Graham, North Carolina, under the leadership of Pastor Ricky Hooker.
Donta received his education early on in Wake County School system in Raleigh, North Carolina. He later attended Weldon High School in Weldon, North Carolina.
Donta was employed in the Hospitality Industry as a Janitor and worked for Best Western Hotel in Burlington, North Carolina. He later continued the same line of work at Reser’s Foods in Halifax, North Carolina.
Lemuel leaves behind four beautiful children: Devante Edwards of Fayetteville, NC, Travonta Jarrell (Carlee) of Littleton, NC, Jazmine “Shante” Edwards of Roanoke Rapids, NC and Keyonde Harris of Rocky Mount, NC; his mother Wonda Bunn Rice of Roanoke Rapids, NC; father: William Boyd of Washington, DC; special parent: Robert Rice of Warrenton, NC; six siblings: Juandrell Rice (Brandaline) of Burlington, NC, Kevin McKinney, Brian McKinney, Lisa McKinney, Katrina McKinney, and Christopher McKinney, all of Washington, DC; six grandchildren: two grandparents: James (Mary) Bunn of Roanoke Rapids, NC; twelve uncles; two aunts; nieces; nephews; and a host of other relatives and friends.
Lemuel was preceded in death by two grandparents: William (Blanch) Boyd; two uncles: Clifford and Ray Boyd. On a typical day, you could find Donta talking on the phone, listening to music, enjoying special moments with family and friends, but don’t get it twisted, he enjoyed hearing the Word of God.
Funeral arrangements are incomplete and will be announced by the Roanoke Rapids location of H.D. Pope Funeral Home, Inc.

My deepest condolences for the loss of yourlove one, the Bible show that God is "God of all comfort" 2 Corinthian 1:3,4 and soon the prophecy at John 5:28,29 will become a reality the "resurrection of the dead", can you imagine what that will mean in the future on earth, a happy time.
