Wayland Duke McGlohon Jr of Greenville, NC passed away January 13, 2020 at the age of 79 after a long battle with Parkinson’s. Wayland was born on March 23, 1940 and was raised in Ayden, NC. He attended NCSU where he fell in love with Florence Overton Scott and married her on September 29, 1961. They raised three daughters, Elizabeth, Kimberly and Melinda. Wayland was in the banking industry in Raleigh for many years. He left banking and moved to Greenville to pursue his passion for boating. He finished his career in the insurance business which suited his personality well. Wayland spent many summers at their river cottage in Bayview, NC where he really enjoyed time with family and friends.

Wayland enjoyed the workmanship of furniture building and guns in his spare time, as well as sitting peacefully and listening to music. His home was furnished with beautiful mahogany pieces that he made by hand. It was also full of the latest gun catalogs and reloading equipment. He was a Life Member and past Treasurer at the Pitt County Wildlife Club where he enjoyed spending time with good friends and target shooting. Wayland was an amazing husband, father and friend. He was a compassionate soul and touched all parts of life with patience and positivity.

Wayland was preceded in death by his parents, Wayland Duke McGlohon and Maggie Campbell McGlohon, and by his cherished grandson, William Joseph Schweibinz.

Artie, David and Family,
I was so sorry to learn of Wayland's passing. I grew up around the corner on Snow Hill St. Your family was one of the kindest in Ayden. I have wonderful memories of playing football in your side yard and your mother coming out and yelling, "Y'all be careful and don't run over my cedar tree." Now that tree is maybe 50 feet tall. I ran with the football by grabbing onto Wayland's belt and heading toward the goal line.
I know you will miss him. Please pass my good wishes on to your family.

Florence and Wayland were the best neighbors one could ever have. They welcomed us to the South in the early 1970's. When our son turned 16, Wayland gave him a job at the bank as a Courier. It was tough seeing them move away from our neighborhood.
We send our deepest sympathies to Florence and her girls. May Wayland rest in the arms of our loving Savior.

Florence and family, We remember Wayland with such fondness. Please know that we have all of you in our thoughts and prayers. Just found this out. At the Dr’s okay, we are on the way to visit Chip and Jen. Just wanted you to know that we are thinking of all of you. I will see you when we return. Not sure of return date. A couple weeks I think. Love to all

Worked with Wayland "way back when,' @ Wachovia. I will always remember his delightful laugh and infectious smile. My condolences to the family and also his friend Tracy Holder. It was a pleasure to have known Wayland.
