Wayne Lucas Guilford, son of the late Ernest and Mary (Dewitt) Guilford, passed away peacefully at home with his wife and two daughters on May 12. Wayne, a Walterboro, SC native, was maintenance manager at Stevens Creek Commons for more than 30 years. He spent many years on Clarks Hill Lake fishing and camping with family. He also loved time at Edisto Beach, Clemson sports, summertime baseball and fall football, auto and boat racing, especially the NHRA, and motorcycle riding with his SCC buddies. However, there was little more he loved than spending time with "his girls" and "his boys". He leaves behind his wife of nearly 40 years, Kay; children Michele Guilford, Crystal (Danny) Williams, Daniel Russell; grandchildren Trevor, Jason, Kelcie, Dawson and Camie; great grandson Eli; daughter-in-law Shana Russell; in-laws the late Bert and the late Madeleine Boatwright; siblings the late Winston (Beth) Guilford, the late Elmer Guilford, Earl (Loretta) Guilford, the late Juanita (Norris) Smoak; the late Eddie Boatwright, Kathy McLerren, the late Larry (Barbara) Boatwright, and Lynne (Ricky) Bruins; 12 nieces and nephews; and long-time and special family friend, Tom Franklin. The family would like to thank Courtney at Encompass Hospice (Care South) for her compassionate care during Wayne's final days. Family and friends are invited to drop in and celebrate Wayne's life Sunday, May 14 at the Stevens Creek Commons Clubhouse, 100 Bon Air Dr., Augusta between 5 and 8 p.m. A small graveside gathering for family and friends will be held at Live Oak Cemetery in Walterboro, on Friday, May 19, 2017 at 12:30 p.m. Condolences can be sent to 2317 Lions Gate Dr., Augusta, GA 30909. In lieu of flowers, the family asks for donations made in Wayne's honor to The Lydia Project in Augusta thelydiaproject.org, a cause very near and dear to the family's heart.
