Carl Edgar Wessinger

CHAPIN - Carl Edgar Wessinger’s journey on this earth came to an end on March 8, 2013 after an inspiring journey of faith and trust in our Lord. Carl has now won the battle over cancer and achieved the ultimate victory. Carl’s journey in his new body with the Lord has now begun. Carl was born March 20, 1944 to the late Cecil Edgar and Stella Frick Wessinger. Carl was a loving son, husband, father, grandfather, brother and friend. He was so greatly loved by all that knew him. Carl had a tenderhearted spirit that loved completely. Carl’s last few months were filled with words of faith and trust in God for His will to be done and that God receive the glory and praise and use Carl’s journey to turn others to Christ. The family will receive family and friends at Caughman-Harman Funeral Home, Chapin Chapel on Sunday, March 10, 2013 from 5-7. A celebration of Carl’s life will be held at St. Peter Lutheran Church, Chapin, SC on Monday, March 11, 2013 at 4:00 with interment in the church cemetery. Pall bearers will be Kenny Sandel, Billy Sandel, Ricky Cannon, Eddie Cannon, Bryan Wessinger and Jim Owens. Honorary pall bearers will be employees of Mashburn Construction Company. Carl was recently retired from Mashburn Construction Company where he had been employed for thirty-three years. Carl’s love and dedication to his company was an example to everyone. His co-workers were not just that, they were his family also. Carl is survived by his loving wife, of forty-two years, Sherill Steverson Wessinger; his children, Edgar Lee (Susan Barrett) Wessinger and Sherri W. (Joshua) Thompson. Carl is also survived by the light of his life on this earth, his grandchildren, Kathryn Anne Wessinger, Elijah Thompson, Chaya Thompson, Abigail Wessinger, Ezra Thompson and Aliyah Thompson. Carl’s love for these “babies” and all children knew no bounds. Carl is also survived by his siblings, Melverta W. (Bill) Sandel, Kathy W. (Larry) Cannon, Lynne W. (Richard) Fulmer and Danny L. (Belinda Yonce) Wessinger, all of Chapin. Left also to cherish the memories are Carl’s brothers-in-law, Wade (Linda) Steverson of Escondito, Ca and Al (Sandra) Steverson of Lexington, SC; step-father-in-law, Michael Latham; numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, his family at Mashburn Construction Company, friends and other extended family. We would like to extend our appreciation to Blue Ridge Hospice Care for their love and care of this amazing man especially Krista Kell, Kristi Morris, Sue Bestwick, Susan Fellers and also to all of you who have cared so greatly and visited so often. You all have been a constant blessing. One of Carl’s great concerns was for the children who are stricken with cancer and children that were left homeless. Memorials may be made to: St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital, 262 Danny Thomas Place, Memphis, Tn. 38105 or Bet Elazraki Children’s Home in Israel at their website
