Obituary for John Selby Wade

John Selby Wade, 83, passed away on Thursday, October 24, 2019 at Kitty Askins Hospice Center.

John was born in Greene County on January 11, 1936 to the late John D. and Alma Wells Wade. He was married to the late Maxine Hicks Wade. For many years he worked with Kemp Furniture and later worked with his son as well as Wayne Wholesale in Goldsboro. John had a wonderful sense of humor and never took himself too seriously.
