He dedicated many years of work to the Carolina Power and Light/ Duke Energy Sutton Plant in Wilmington, where his coworkers greatly depended on his expertise. He was beloved by his community, which he served for many terms as the President of the Crosswinds Homeowners Association.

    I will miss Wade dearly. I knew Wade though his daughter whom I went to high school with. His love for his wife and his daughter was so apparent and evident whenever I was around him. His laugh was infectious and warm, and he had the sort of aura as a dad that all other dads aspire to have. He was a kind soul that will dearly be missed here, however I have no worry as his faith was strong in the Lord. I wont say goodbye Wade, I will simply say I will see you later.

    We are deeply saddened to hear the news of our amazing neighbor. Wade was always looking out for and keeping all of us in the community up to date on the ins and outs of the happenings in our community. He was always so happy and loved talking about his kids and grandkids!! Such a proud father!! We will miss hearing him sing all his favorite songs while mowing the grass. Rest in peace in the arms of the heavens, Wade.
