Stan and I had the privilege of knowing Wellon for many years as our neighbor in Harbour Place. He Lived across the street and was always welcoming, friendly, helpful, and overall kind and caring. He was quick to speak and ask about our children or our grandchildren and really took an interest in us as well as the neighborhood. He served many different terms on our homeowners board, usually as the treasurer, and was exceptional at all he did. Even though he had been gone from our neighborhood for a few years we still thought of him when we looked over at his house and missed him then. We will continue to think of Wellon and miss him here, but he lived his faith and we know we will see him again in glory.

So sorry to learn of Wellon's passing. I enjoyed golf with him when we played together on senior mornings at CCofL. Wellon was quiet but had a wonderful and dry sense of humor. We senior golfers shall miss him!
Peace and blessings to his family.

To the second cousins I never really knew: I’m first cousin to Wellon, my mother being Bernice. I’m Glenda’s age and as Wellon was older and living away from Duplin, I didn’t have as much interchange with him as I did the other siblings. But I do remember him very well when we were all younger. I just want you to know how sorry I am for your loss and the loss of our handsome and sweet cousin. Bertha and Wyatt and their children were all very special to me ... they raised some very special and good kids. May your hearts be light. God be with you all! Your cousin Betsy Cavenaugh Easter

With deepest sympathy to the family for your loss.
Sam and I got to know Wellon at the Gathering Christian dance in 2004. We became close friends with Wellon as well as Nancy and in addition to dancing the four of us enjoyed traveling together, yearly trips to Edisto Beach, playing board games and home tailgating for sporting events. It did not matter what you had to eat at these events as long as there was dessert. And- he loved his ice cream. He was a kind and gentle friend and the many good memories are cherished.

I will miss my good friend Wellon. We shared so many wonderful times together. We were both seniors when we met at a Christian Singles Dance and we continued to dance through the next twenty years of our lives together. We enjoyed family get-togethers and exciting trips with church groups. We enjoyed close friends and all the joys that friends bring into each others lives.
Wellon was faithful to his God and faithful to his Church. He was dependable. He was quiet and gentle, kind and compassionate. He was caring and most of all he was loving. I will miss him.

Uncle Wellon was an amazing person. He was a loving father and grandfather. He was a dedicated Christian man. I can still hear in my heart Uncle K.R, Uncle Wellon and my Dad laughing at their childhood antics. My heart goes out to Monica, Steve, Brian and Kyle, and their families. Love you
