William Nunalee III Obituary

William Marshall Nunalee III, age 71, of Burgaw passed from his earthly life Sunday, February 11, 2024 at home.

     He was born March 22, 1952 in Wilmington but spent all of his life in his beloved Pender County dividing his time between the beach and his country home. Marshall was the son of William Marshall Nunalee, Jr. and Marie “Bobby” Clemmons Nunalee.

     Marshall is survived by his wife of 39 years, Mary Dail Nunalee; son, William Daniel Nunalee and his wife, Robin; daughter, Rachel Elizabeth Nunalee; grandchildren, Reagan Nunalee and Addison Nunalee; brother, Mark Nunalee; and many extended family and friends.

     Marshall was the owner of Nunalee Lumber Company where he worked for over 40 years. He was a skilled wood craftsman with his expertise being designing and cutting specialty wood crafts.

     He loved the outdoors and was an avid wood duck hunter and enjoyed deep sea fishing. Country living was Marshall’s way of life. Most important in Marshall’s life was his beloved family. His passing leaves an empty place in our home and in our hearts.
