August 3, 2023, 65, Kenly —
Luby Linwood Narron, 65, was freed from the cares of this world on Thursday, August 3, 2023, at his home. Born in Wilson County on February 14, 1958, he was the son of the late Luby Lester Narron and Mildred Ann Horne Deans.
Many knew Linwood as a great electrician. No matter the job, the community knew when they saw L.L Narron Electric that the job would be done right. When not working, Linwood could still be found fixing things in his free time. Working in the sewing shop for years, one of his favorite things to fix was old sewing machines.
Linwood loved his community. Growing up in Kenly, he was known as “Big Man.” No matter where he was in Kenly, he was always able to find a friend, and if someone was just passing through, he was able to make a friend. He volunteered his time coaching little league baseball in the Glendale community. He loved his church, New Jerusalem Free Will Baptist Church. He loved the chicken sales each year and could often time be found next to the grill. He preferred to be behind the scenes helping in any way that he could.
Linwood had no greater love than that of his family. He loved his father, mother, and stepfather dearly. He had many aunts and uncles that he also loved, even if they were not blood kin. His brothers and sister also hold a special place in his heart. He loved his wife, Cami Jo, and their children with all his heart, but to Linwood, nothing was sweeter than his grandbabies. His love for his family knew no bounds and each moment spent with them was a cherished memory he held on to forever.
Per his request, no formal services will be held.
Linwood is survived by his loving wife, Cami Jo Kemp Narron; children, Jerald Linwood Narron and wife, Cassi, Matthew Garrett Narron and wife, Caroline, and Casey Joe Narron and wife, Mairin; grandchildren, McKenna, Connor, and Lennox Narron; brothers, Michael Narron and wife, Jan, and Terry Narron and wife, Amy; nieces, Brittany Narron and wife, Mardi, and Brooke Pate and husband, Gabe. Linwood is also survived by his special canine friend Cooper (Pete), who could often be seen riding in the truck with him all over Kenly.
In addition to his parents, Linwood is preceded in death by his step-father, Luther “Punk” Deans; and sister, Christi Pearce.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorials be sent in memory of Linwood to

501 St. Jude Place
Memphis, TN 38105
