January 13, 1950 – April 7, 2024

Dr. John White Menius III passed away unexpectedly on Sunday, April 7, 2024, at Cone Hospital in Greensboro, NC. He was 74 years old. 

Dr. Menius was born on Jan. 13, 1950, to Henrietta Menius and Dr. John White Menius Jr. 

A true Tar Heel, he attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill for all of his higher education accomplishments. He completed his undergraduate education in 1971, his Doctorate of Dental Surgery in 1975, and a 2-year residency in 1977. Then he moved back to Asheboro, NC, to set up his practice, where he attended to hundreds of patients until he retired in December of 2021.

Dr. Menius was preceded in death by his father and mother, and is survived by his wife of 45 years, Joy; children, Alex (Maegan) and Meredith; grandchildren, Eleanor and Elijah; siblings Tom (Megan) and David (Donna); nieces and nephews.

In addition to being a lifelong Tar Heel, Dr. Menius enjoyed taking care of his yard, playing golf at Pinewood Country Club, snowboarding and skiing, and traveling with his wife and children across the US and out of the country. 

He was an active member of the Asheboro Rotary Club (Paul Harris Fellow), and a former member of the Randolph County Dental Society and the Guilford County Dental Society. Doc, as he was known to some, will be greatly missed by all who know and love him.    

The service will be Sunday, April 14, at 2 p.m. at First United Methodist Church Asheboro (224 N Fayetteville St, Asheboro, NC 27203) with a visitation to follow.
