December 22, 1944 - August 2, 2021
PARDUE WALKERTOWN Michael Edward Pardue, 76, went home to be with his Lord Monday afternoon, August 2, 2021, at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center. Michael was born in Forsyth County on December 22, 1944, to Thomas Pardue Jr. and Hilda Futrell Pardue, who preceded him in death. He is survived by his loving wife of 38 years, Brenda Trivette Pardue; 2 children, Pamela McCarthy (Daniel) and Elizabeth Carlin (Joseph); 5 grandchildren, Ally, Noelle, Charlotte, Liam, and Ben; and brothers Tommy and Joe of Walkertown and their wives Pat and Ellen. Michael served in the US Navy on active duty in Vietnam, working on the flight decks of carriers USS Midway (’64-’66) and USS Constellation (’66-’68) as an Aviation Boatswain’s Mate (Fuels). He entered service in the Naval Reserve in 1980 as an Operations Specialist and retired as a proud First Class Petty Officer with over 20 years of service. He was also retired from RJ Reynolds Tobacco Company with 33 years of service. Michael loved God and had strong faith. He loved this country, college football, and good music. He never missed an Alabama game and he loved the Carolina Hurricanes. He was an award-winning amateur photographer with great skill and considerable talent. Michael touched many lives in his time, but his family will most fondly remember the care, tenderness, and generosity he showed his children and grandchildren. The unsurpassed joy he felt, playing on the floor with his grandchildren, making them laugh, and sneaking them sweets (liberally), could be easily seen. He loved them often and well, and they will all treasure their memories of him. The family would like to extend their gratitude to the staff of the Burn ICU at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center for their exemplary care and compassion. There will be an 11:00 AM graveside service held on Saturday, August 7, 2021 at Gardens of Memory Mausoleum Chapel with Rev. Darryl Fulp officiating. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the donor’s choice in Michael’s name. Burroughs Funeral Home, Walnut Cove is honored to be serving the Pardue family.
