Wayne Gill

Funeral Services for Wayne Gill, age 85, of Carriere, MS, who passed away Wednesday, January 1, 2020, will be held Tuesday, January 7, 2020, at 1:00 pm at First Baptist Church of Picayune.

Visitation will be Tuesday, January 7, 2020 from 11:00 am until 1:00 pm at First Baptist Church of Picayune.

Burial will be in McNeill Cemetery under the direction of McDonald Funeral Home.

Dr. Keith Warden will officiate the service.

A native of McNeill, he served in the USMC for 12 years and completed his long career of military service upon his retirement from the MS National Guard 890th unit in Picayune.

His civilian career began in 1965 at Stennis in cryogenics with the space program and ended with NOAA and the Data Buoy Program, where he helped to deploy Weather Data Buoys all over the globe. Over the span of is lifetime he traveled the entire world and never met a stranger.

Always a faithful servant of God, he was ordained at Goodyear Baptist Church in 1975, where he enjoyed serving as deacon and teacher. He served in various youth and children’s ministries and wherever there was a need. Later he became an active member at First Baptist Church of Picayune, serving as a teacher, counselor and as a faithful prayer partner of the pastor every Sunday. He leaves a legacy of love for God, family, and country through Christian children, grandchildren, and other family members because he found God’s grace so amazing that he could not keep it to himself.

Wayne was preceded in death by his parents, James “Jim” Washington Gill, Jr. and Eva Mae Burton Gill.

Left to cherish his memory are his loving and devoted wife of 63 years, Ruby Parker Gill; his loving and devoted daughters, Lisa (Paul) Treuting, and Pamela (Hal Mark) Schrock; his grandchildren, Scott (Amanda) Prazak, Jay (Natasha) Romero IV, Jennifer (Jeromy) Blakeslee, and David Gordon IV,  and 3 step grandchilden; 9 great-grandchildren; his brothers, Milton Gill and Anthony Gill; his sister, Donna Lynn Gill Smith; and  numerous nieces and nephews.
