Willie Elwood Padgett 71, of Castle Hayne died Wednesday February 10, 2016 at his home with his family at his side.
Willie was born in Wilmington on May 31, 1944 the son of the late Bennie Elwood and Rebie Mobley Padgett.

Pope and husband Philip all of Wilmington ; a sister Bea Singletary and husband Billy of Wilmington; special niece and nephew, Dawn Dowell and Brian Merritt; six grandchildren and one great-grandchild.
Willie retired as a Carman from CSX Transportation after 32 years of service. He was a loving husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather. His love for his family was only exceeded by his love for his lord and savior, Jesus Christ. Other passions included woodworking, love for animals, and spending time on the “Back Porch” with his family and close friends Bob and Karen Morgan.
He will be missed but we look forward to our next “get together” in heaven.
