Milton Ronquest

WHITE STONE—Milton MacArthur Ronquest, 79, of White Stone went to be with the Lord Wednesday, December 27, 2023. He was born on May 22, 1944, to Ernest Lee Eston Ronquest and Florence Norine Edwards Ronquest in Richmond. He later was raised by his loving foster parents, Cleveland Liddell “Pete” and Enid Somers in White Stone.

Milton is survived by his longtime sweetheart, Barbara Owens; his son, Robert Ronquest; five grandchildren, Catherine Paige, Parker and Faith, John and Stephen Ronquest; and two great-grandchildren, Henry and Alexander Shaffer. He is also survived by his siblings, Gloria Jean Craig, Eston Ronquest, Wayne Ronquest Pointer, Linda Heagle, Donna Mason, Mark Ronquest, Marcia Combs and Ricky Ronquest.

Milton was preceded in death by his parents and foster parents; his wife, Nancy Wolfenden Ronquest; his son, Liddell Ronquest; and brothers Donald Ronquest and Elbert Ronquest.

Milton was a wonderful, generous, humbling man who loved life, his family and Jesus Christ with all his heart. He loved to encourage people to be the best they can be. He allowed us to use his building for An Extra Helping Hand but he didn’t stop there. He gave of his labor and his finances. 

He enjoyed hearing and telling jokes. He knew no strangers, as he enjoyed talking with everyone he met. He was a perfectionist in all he did and it showed in his upholstering and floor covering work. He was always determined to not let anything beat him at anything he did, including his computer. He was a deacon and longtime member of White Stone Baptist Church. He always said earth is not his home, but he is home now, and he will be greatly missed.

A celebration of life was held at 2 p.m. Wednesday, January 3, at White Stone Baptist Church. Family received friends an hour prior to the service.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to White Stone Baptist Church’s An Extra Helping Hand Ministry. 

Currie Funeral Home LLC of Kilmarnock handled the arrangements.
