We miss you all.



Ernest Mauldin - KI4SYU

Became a Silent Key on June 1, 2020


Mr. Hubert "Ernest" Mauldin, 76 of Hamptonville, passed away Monday, June 1, 2020 at Forsyth Medical Center. He was born May 29, 1944 in Surry County to Hubert and Annie Trivette Mauldin. Ernest was a graduate of West Yadkin High School and a member of Zion Baptist Church. He was a farmer, a merchant, and truck driver. His greatest pleasure was being with family and friends. After a stroke 24 years ago, his involvement as a HAM radio operator brought him numerous friends he dearly loved and enjoyed. A true outdoorsman, his intense love of John Deere tractors and equipment was a source of pride.

He is survived by his son and daughter-in-law, Jerome and Donna Mauldin; grandson, Heath (Kayla) Mauldin; great grandchildren, Colton & Adlee; step granddaughter, Heather (Ritchie) Holbrook; step great grandchildren, Ross Holbrook and Sydni (Austin) Griffith; great-great step grandchild, James Griffith; a sister, Pattie (Hoyt) Reece; niece, Lucinda Reece; and several special cousins and friends.
