Radford D. London

Radford D. London, age 84, of the Center Community, went to be with his many friends and loved ones in heaven forever to be in the presence of his Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ on Wednesday, February 14, 2018.  God graciously blessed him with many talents here in this life.  He loved to sing Bluegrass gospel music.  He used his voice to serve the Lord, as song leader for Allens Grove Baptist Church, among the many churches he was invited to sing at.  Over the years, he was a farmer by trade, but also made beautiful cherry & walnut antique reproduction furniture.  He was a native of Metcalfe County and a member of Savoyard Missionary Baptist Church, an avid sportsman who enjoyed hunting, fishing and horseback riding.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Raymond & Beulah Mae Young London, and two brothers, Lavon London & Ray Densel London.

He is survived by two daughters, Nova London, Hardyville, and Karen Greer (Zane), Horse Cave; four grandchildren, Nathan Jackson, Allison Hatcher (Lee), Jordan Greer and Tyler Greer; four great-grandchildren, Lucy Jackson, Garrett, Kate & Benjamin Hatcher; one brother, Billy London, Center; and several nieces and nephews.

Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday, February 17, 2018, at Winn Funeral Home with burial to follow in the Center-Asbury Cemetery with military honors conducted by D.A.V. Chapter #20 Glasgow.  Visitation at Winn Funeral Home on Friday from 2-8 p.m. and on Saturday, after 8 a.m. until time of service.

We are so sorry to hear of Radfords passing. We are Russell and Dee Janes, sister and brother-in-law of Clara and TJ Adams. We visited Radford different times with Clara and TJ. I know how close he and TJ were. Since TJs passing Radford has been at the shop several times. I always loved talking with him. We would have been at the funeral had we known. We are so sorry.
May God Bless each one.

We in Indianapolis (Mount Calvary Missionary Baptist Church in Acton, IN) are all sorry for the loss of Radford London. He would make it a point to travel up to Indy every homecoming in September (also to go to Gray Bro's Caf) and we know in 40 years he only missed twice. You can't count on church members that good...
Radford was not only a friend, acousin to Debbie and Bro. Bobby,but he wasalso a brother in Christ to all of us! He loved to play music and be with us at church services. Debbie, myself and our kids (Amanda & Amy) slept under his roof countless times over the years. We also, had him make us some of his wonderful furniture for us too. We will always cherish the times we spent with him and his family (Nova, Karen, Zane, Allyson, Nathan, Jordan, Tyler) We love you all and will be praying for you in the coming months.
Love from Indiana,
Jim & Debbie Means

My first remembrance of Uncle Radford takes place back around the late 80's at his home (I was around 3 years old). My dad and I stopped by to visit him. While they were taking, I found a stick and began to chase this old sheep that Uncle Radford had in his yard. I guess the old sheep got tired of me, and when I turned to walk away it charged me (hard) and knocked me down. He and my dad got a good kick out of that I imagine. I never liked that sheep
Through my years of growing up I was exposed to him very often (we only lived about 10 minutes away). I loved to hear him and my grandpa talk about the good old days, and how much the times had changed. Maybe they are partly the reason I have such an old soul today. I also enjoyed the stories of his military service and the stories about all of the trouble the four brothers managed to get into when their mother wasnt home. He could tell those stories so vividly. He taught me how to set a trotline too, and Ill always treasure those moments we shared out on the Green River. I could go on and on about all of the good memories I have of Uncle Radford. But I have to say that my favorite memories involve hearing him tell people about the work of salvation that the Lord had done in his life. He made sure that everyone he knew, knew where he stood with the Lord. Weve been in several blessed services together over the years around Allen Grove. We dont really realize how precious they are, until after weve gathered together for the last time on this side of eternity.
How thankful I am, that I know well be gathered together again on that great homecoming day. I believe that if Uncle Radford could send us one message from Heaven today, that it would be the same one he spoke here on Earth. I believe hed say, that no matter what you do in this life, be sure that you get right with the Lord. Be sure that you know Him, and that your name is written and recorded in the Lambs Book of Life. Eternity is forever, and it would be a severe tragedy to face eternity unforgiven. Dont stand before a just God, unprepared and without the blood of Jesus.
As Uncle Radford crossed his last valley on the morning of February 14th, he finally got to meet the precious One that made a way for him to have eternal life. He got to meet the One hes sang about all those years. Im of the upmost assurance that hes at peace with Him right now. Our minds truly cant comprehend the joy and peace that he is experiencing at this very moment. What a blessing and help Uncle Radford was to me. Im so thankful that through Gods perfect plan of salvation, I will see him again. God is so good.

He was an incredibly moral and ethical man. There was nothing he couldn't do and nothing he wouldn't do for his beloved daughters who actually did hang the sun and the moon. In my heart and mind Radford was right up there with Jesus, Elvis and John Wayne. Heaven rejoiced with such a wonderful new member and squirrels everywhere know the woods just got a little safer. I love you sir, your family and I'm a better man for having you all in it.
