Jesse Wayne Lott
Jan. 3, 1945 – Sept. 27, 2012
Wayne Lott, 67, died of cancer in Holcomb, at the home of his daughter and son-in-law, Jessica and Chris Corbett, with his wife and other family and friends surrounding him in love.
He was born in Pascagoula, on Jan. 3, 1945, and was the only child of Jessie P. and Katherine Pate Lott. The family later moved to Holcomb, where he grew up and attended local schools in Grenada and Carroll counties and Holmes Jr. College. Regardless of where he was transferred, he continued his college education, majoring in Pre-Law and Political Science.
Wayne married Joy Stallings of Cascilla, on Jan. 21, 1966, while they were in college. He later joined the Army and served in Vietnam, where his exposure to Agent Orange eventually contributed to his death. Wayne enjoyed the Army and served 22 years active duty. Joy considered being a military wife an adventure. As a U.S. Civil Service employee with the Department of Army, she was able to transfer with him and pursue her own career. They enjoyed living in and exploring all the different locations and surrounding areas they were assigned. These included Washington, Georgia, California, Heidelberg, Germany, and Portland, Ore., where he retired from the United Sates Army, and resided for the past 28 years. Wayne received many honors, recognitions and medals during his career, including three Meritorious Service Awards.
Their only child, Jessica Joy Lott, was born in 1977. Wayne was so thrilled to be a Dad. He started taking her fishing when she was an infant in a stroller! With the birth of Jessica’s son, Jace, three years ago, he was instantly his granddaddy’s pride and joy and truly blessed Wayne’s life.
Wayne was a member of Oak Hills Presbyterian Church in Portland. He was passionate about many things, particularly his patriotism and politics. He was committed to helping anyone in need. After retiring, he had more time to dedicate to this passion, focusing on veterans.
Wayne was predeceased by his father, Jessie P. Lott of Holcomb and two long time close friends, Bob Crane of Glenns Ferry, Idaho and Col. (Ret) Kenneth Reusser of Portland, Ore.
Survivors include his mother, Katherine Pate Lott of Grenada; wife, Joy Stallings Lott of Portland; daughter, Jessica (Chris) and their son Jace, all of Holcomb. Wayne also leaves a daughter, Atlantis Kae Baron and her son, Carter, of Rohnert Park, Calif.
Services for Wayne were at 3 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 30, 2012, at Holcomb Baptist Church. The Rev. Kevin Tribble officiated. At Wayne’s request, he will be cremated. His remains will be buried at Magnolia Cemetery in Paynes on Saturday, Oct. 6, 2012, at 10 a.m.
Pallbearers were William Lott, David Goss, Marc Hayward, and Terry Williams. Honorary pallbearers were Julian Bloom, Luther Owens Sr., Sandy Goss, John Bloom, John Paul Staten, Johnny Madures, and Ray Monger.
Wayne’s love for this country was boundless. He requested that in his memory and for the security of our children’s and grandchildren’s future, please vote on Nov. 6 for the Republican candidates!
