C. Wayne Gilliam
C. Wayne Gilliam is survived by his loving wife of 35 years, Donna. Three children, Christopher, Danielle and Taylor. One grandson, Aiden. His father Landon (Step- mother: Mary). Step-father, Mark. Siblings: Nate, Dan, Reggie, Ree, Brian and Marky. He joins his mother, China Faye and siblings: Brenda and Dicky.
In his 58 years he worked at Elmer Dinner (NJ), Piper Pools (NJ), Ready Mix Concrete (NJ), Florida Rock Concrete (FL) and Dex Imaging (FL). At each job he seemed to leave a lasting memory as the family has had co-workers reach out to them after hearing the news of his passing. He always made sure to go out of his way for others in the workplace and at home. Wayne seemed to make everyone smile. He enjoyed being outside, fishing, walking through nature, working in the yard, hanging out at his fire pit with a beer in one hand and a cigarette in the other. He spent many days with his loving family and friends listening to music or watching his favorite football team The Philadelphia Eagles or Nascar. A simple man for the most part. There are many people with many stories of the years past up until his last days. He passed away at Suncoast Hospice Center, surrounded by many of his family members and friends and under the amazing care of various nurses and volunteers who made him comfortable in his final days of his battle with cancer.
