March 15, 1946 — May 26, 2024

Interment will follow at Zion Hope Baptist Church Cemetery. The family will receive friends from 6:00 to 8:00 P.M. on Wednesday, May 29, 2024 at the funeral home.

Wayne was born on March 15, 1946, in Berrien County, Georgia, to the late Thomas Musselwhite and Lois Conger Musselwhite. 


Wayne was known for his dedication as the owner and operator of Wayne's Body Shop until his retirement in 2010. His commitment to his work was evident to all who knew him. Beyond his professional success, Wayne's proudest accomplishment was being a member of Zion Hope Baptist Church, where he found solace and community. Wayne led a fulfilling life surrounded by love and laughter.
 
In the hearts of his surviving family members, Wayne leaves an irreplaceable void. He is survived by his beloved wife, Sandra Marchant Musselwhite, who stood by his side through thick and thin. His legacy lives on through his children: Tina and Bill McGrath of Florida, Sherri and Travis Bennett of Tifton, and Stephen and Liz Musselwhite of Florida. Wayne cherished his grandchildren deeply: Amber Bennett Stewart and Jeb Stewart, Austin and Alex Bennett, Aubrey Musselwhite, and Jase Musselwhite.
 
Wayne will be dearly missed by his siblings: Daniel and Janice Musselwhite of Mystic, GA; Johnny Musselwhite of Nashville, GA; Joyce and Randy Willis of Tifton; Millie and Ken Kroboth of Rochester, New York and his brother-in-law and sister-in-law, Robert and Sue Marchant of Tifton. 


In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his sister, Betty Kennedy and sister-in-law, Wanda Musselwhite.


Apart from his professional pursuits, Wayne's fondest memories revolve around being a loving husband, dad, and grandpa. He adored his Grand Dogs like family members—a testament to his kind heart and gentle spirit.
 
Wayne will forever remain in our hearts as a beacon of love, strength, and unwavering faith. May he rest in peace knowing that he was cherished beyond measure.
