POINDEXTER, Ralph Lewis, 83, of Ashland, Virginia, passed away on Tuesday, November 16, 2021. He was preceded in death by his wife, Marian W. Poindexter; parents, James "Jimmy" Poindexter and Ellen Elizabeth "Queen" Poindexter; brothers, Roy F. Poindexter and Everett "Wills" Poindexter; and sister, Betty P. Hopkins. He is survived by his sons, Ronnie Poindexter (Pat) and Mike Poindexter (Judy); grandkids, Ellen Carroll (Ryan) and Daniel Poindexter; great-grandsons, Lucas and Tucker Carroll; brothers, Stuart Poindexter (Nancy), Genie Poindexter (Clara); sisters, Irma Adams (Alvin) and Linda Seay (Duck); sisters-in-law, Ann Poindexter and Ann Williamson; brothers-in-law, David Hopkins and Newbill Williamson; and a number of nieces and nephews. Ralph retired as the president of Ralph's Plumbing & Heating after over 50 years in the plumbing and heating industry. He developed many friendships and business acquaintances over the years. He was also a member of Winns Baptist Church. He was loved by all who knew him and he was committed to helping others with whatever their needs may be. He was quite the storyteller and would spend as much time as one would allow telling numerous stories. He will be sorely missed by many folks.
