Robert Michael "Sonny" Hamby

SUGAR GROVE, Va. ROBERT MICHAEL "SONNY" HAMBY, age 65, passed away Monday, April 1, 2019 at Bristol Regional Medical Center, Bristol, Tenn. Sonny was the kind of guy everybody liked and knew. He was always smiling, laughing, and talking to people. Poor Joyce always had to load the groceries in the car while Sonny finished up his conversation. He worked several years as a truck driver for Southern States, as a mechanic at the sawmill, and on his farm. His family and especially his grandchildren were the absolute loves of his life. Sonny was known and loved by many, and will be missed. He was preceded in death by his father, R.C. Hamby and mother, Shirley Presley. Sonny is survived by his wife, Joyce Horne Hamby of Sugar Grove, Va.; sons, Michael Hamby of Sugar Grove, Va. and Joey Hamby and wife Carolyn of Saltville, Va.; father-in-law, Wade Horne of Sugar Grove, Va.; sisters, Patricia Nichols of Atkins, Va., and Sherry Puckett of Bristol, Tenn; brothers, Michael Presley and Jason Presley, both of Marion, Va.; four grandchildren; three great-grandchildren; and several nieces and nephews. Funeral services will be held Thursday, April 4, 2019 at 7 p.m. at Seaver-Brown Chapel with Pastor Kenny Price officiating.
