Rondell T. Sims

August 18, 1970 ~ July 26, 2021 (age 50)


Rondell Torquez Sims made his earthly presence on August 18, 1970, and was born to Terest Sims and Sandra Rodgers. He grew up attending New Stoney Hill United Holy Church of Goldsboro, NC. As a child, attending Vacation Bible School was one of his favorite summer activities.
Growing up Rondell enjoyed playing basketball as well as rebuilding electronic devices with custom made speaker attachments to make them better. He also loved his family and found joy in spending time with and conspiring against his sister LaTonya.Though they often worked to see who could get the other in the most trouble, the siblings loved one another fiercely. 
Rondell was very close with his graduating class, the Goldsboro High School class of 1988. Though he was generally quite and shy, when he was among his classmates his spirit came alive. Many of his classmates describe him as being funny and most likely to get everyone in trouble and blame everyone else particularly for making beats while in class. They also remember him as being a great source of encouragement both during and after high school.

Throughout his life, Rondell enjoyed seeing the east coast. He found his long-term home within Virginia where he married Pam Levenberry and worked at Garrette Newspaper Company as a paper processor. During their time together Rondell and Pam shared two daughters who he lovingly referred to as his “queens.  Though the union between Rondell and Pam did not last, their friendship will stand the test of time. 

Rondell had a special interest in keeping the things around him in great condition. He expressed this most in the way he dressed as well as detailing cars.  He detailed cars at Davis Car Wash in Virginia for several years. 

The most important thing in Rondell’s life was his family and friends. On more than one occasion he has been referred to as ‘the best man” they have ever met. He had an easy-going temperament and even spoke lovingly when angry. Rondell had a deep love for his family and friends and would always do what he could to make sure they were happy and taken care of.

 Cherished memories of Rondell are carried on by his parents Sandra Rodgers and Terest Sims (Shirley); his sister LaTonya Barnes (Phillip); his brother Cameron Sims; his uncles Tommy L. Johnson and Hakeem Muhammad (Donna Rodgers); his aunts Teresa Sims & Shirley Rodgers; his daughters Dionda Fugitt and Dominique Cross; his grandchildren Sániyah, JáSai, and Zeyda; his nephew Trel Rodgers; his niece Shaloná Rodgers; seven nieces and nephews Quan, Ny Ny, Shyia, Paris, Zaelon, Zoey, Zyell; special cousin Antoine Durham; special friends Pam Sims and Michell Daniels in addition to his extended family and numerous friends.
