Wade Lewis Puryear's life journey came to end on Friday, April 23. Wade started his life journey in Mecklenburg County Virginia being the son of George and Bonnie Puryear. Wade was preceded in death by his parents, a son Wade Lewis Puryear Jr, his siblings George T. Puryear Jr, Ruby Weston and Rachel Kuhr. He is survived by his brothers Floyd Puryear and John Puryear, a Son Dewyane, and a grand-daughter Brooke Puryear.

Wade served in the US Army and then worked many years in various sales jobs. Over 30 years ago Wade, using his faith in Christ and his own personal strength, overcame his personal addiction to alcoholism and became a counselor and leader with the Sandalwood group. Through this association he developed many long-lasting friendships during his time working to help others become overcomers in life. Wade was an active member at the Timberlake Church of God and a Memorial service will be held at the Church on Wednesday May 5th with a visitation at 6 PM followed by a service at 7PM. Pastor David Thurman, Chaplain Tim Gore and long time friend Robin Rockefeller will be leading the service with special music by Tim Davis and Brenda Gore. Wade was greatly loved. His friends wish to thank the staff of CFVMC 6 south second floor, Woodlands Nursing facility and the team from Liberty Hospice for the care they gave Wade in his final days.

Wade and I were friends since my daughter was 2-years-old. She’s now 14 and a half. We went to Bible study together for a while. My daughter grew up with him in our lives. He was a very dear friend to me and we will miss him! 🤗
