Ronald “Lee” Harden, Jr.

Stapleton, GA  – Ronald “Lee” Harden, Jr., 28, loving son of Janice Sue Neal Harden and the late Ronald Lee “Ronnie” Harden, Sr., entered into rest Friday afternoon, August 2, 2013 as a result of a tragic automobile accident in Augusta. A Celebration of Life will be held at 11:00AM Wednesday, August 7, 2013 at Bethel United Methodist Church with Rev. Tommy Anderson officiating.

Lee grew up in Stapleton and graduated from both Sandersville Tech and Augusta Tech hoping to pursue a career in the medical field but was currently employed by the GA Youth Correction Facility. Lee was a very sensitive and intuitive young man who had a passion and love for music, playing his guitar, singing and writing songs. An amazing, devoted and loyal uncle, cousin and friend, he had a great love for life.  Lee will be greatly missed: his death leaves us a heartache that cannot heal, but his love leaves us memories that no one can steal.

Lee was also preceded in death by his grandparents, Lloyd Felton Harden and Leola Virginia Williams Harden; and his aunt, Debbie Poston. Other survivors include his siblings, Ronnie Turner, Jr. and Mandy Harden Gonnella (Anthony); six nephews, Kolby Gonnella, Kayden Gonnella, Justin Turner, Brandon Turner, Kameron Turner and Karsen Turner; special cousins, Tara Cruz, Johnny Sanders, Laney Farmer, Sue Wren, Sabrina Cameron, Stephanie Flagg and Tiffany Rapp; and many friends.

The family will receive friends at Bethel UMC after the services Wednesday, August 7, 2013.

Because of this unexpected tragedy, the family respectfully requests that memorial contributions be made to James Funeral Home, PO Box 588, Wrens, GA  30833.
Young Life Cut Short

Do not judge a song by its duration
Nor by the number of its notes.
Judge it by the richness of its contents:
Sometimes those unfinished are among the most poignant...

Do not judge a song bu its duration
Nor by the number of its notes.
Judge it by the way it touches and lifts the soul:
Sometimes those unfinished are among the most beautiful...

And when something has enriched your life
And when it's melody lingers on in your heart,
Is it unfinished?
Or is it endless?
