Wayne Darwin Landreth, age 68, went to be with our heavenly father on Friday September 13, 2019. Knowing him, he is up there dancing with his mom to Elvis Presley, or swimming in the ocean. He was a resident of Soddy Daisy, TN retired from Tennessee Valley Authority who served his country in the Air Force as a medic. In his retirement he worked as the Family Services Counselor for Williamson & Sons Funeral Home.
Wayne was a loving father & grandfather as well as a dear friend to many in his community. He was a dedicated Christian and attended The Ministry Center in Hixson, TN where he was a member of the church choir. He was always off on the next adventure especially if the trip revolved around good food and laughs. Wayne was the son of the late Robbie Landreth Sneed & W. D. Landreth.
Surviving family includes daughter Amanda Landreth Niel (Erik), grandson Cade Preston Niel, brother James Mitchell “Mickey” Landreth (Mel), and his sister Judy Collier (Buddy).
