Hubert Raiford, Jr., better known as June was a fixture in our community. His sweet, kind nature was infectious. June’s work ethic was remarkable. For sixty years he proudly worked "along side" Keith Hill. He was often called the “Egg Man” and the “Strawberry Man”. “June Bug” started following “Pop” around the farm at the age of fifteen (15). He learned everything about the farm and proudly considered it his own. June’s family never heard him utter a complaint or negative word. He always smiled and waved when he was on the tractor. His one of a kind “ self less” nature was unforgettable. June loved to plant flowers, dance and sing. He was like a son to Jan and Keith Hill and a brother to “Angie Rose” and “Mel”. The hole in our hearts will never be filled, but we take comfort knowing he is in Heaven singing with his Mother, Della.
He was preceded in death by his father, Hubert Raiford Sr, his mother, Della Raiford and brother, Nathaniel Raiford Sr.
Survivors are: One brother, Jimmy Raiford (Karen); one sister, Ernestine Lowe (James); several nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
