Willard Wayne Erwin, 72, died Saturday, Sept. 18, 2021, in Franklin.

Born in York, Alabama, he was raised in Boligee, Alabama and attended Green County Schools.

Wayne retired and worked part time for Oak Valley Baptist Church, where he faithfully served his lord and savior as a deacon, Sunday school member, mission team member, donut crew member and servant to many. 

Wayne was a devoted husband, father and grandfather. He loved to golf, fish and, at one time, played the drums in a band. He loved the beach and Alabama football.

He was preceded in death by his infant daughter, Leanne; parents W. G. Erwin and Willie B. Coleman; and his brother, Mack Erwin.

He is survived by his beloved wife of 33 years, Martha Kay Erwin; sister, Dorothy Bambarger; children Lorri Erwin Jackson, Jason Wayne Erwin (Kathleen), Steven Randall Walk (Laura) and Pamela Kay Stewart (Kevin); and 12 grandchildren.
