Rundawg was like family; always supportive, always had an ear to listen, and always willing to help;; we never had to ask Run for anything, he was just there with a lending hand and laughs, can’t forget the laughs !! Just a big heart. Our entire family will miss him dearly. Prayers to the kids and Runyon family! With love and support,, the Demps family.
