Lyter – Wayne H. Lyter, age 83, of Sanderson, Florida went to his Heavenly home on November 20, 2021 at Community Hospice Center for Caring at St. Vincent’s Medical Center Southside. Wayne was born on December 19, 1937 in Beaver Springs, Pennsylvania to the late Clyde Lyter and Margaret Pecht Lyter. He was raised in Pennsylvania and after graduating high school, Wayne joined the United States Navy. He proudly served our country from February of 1956 until February of 1962. Wayne’s final station was in Jacksonville which is where he remained the majority of his adult life. Following his honorable discharge from the military, he started his longtime career in the lumber industry. He worked at Riverview Mill Works, Moore Handley Lumber, Wickes Lumber, Southeastern Metals, Holmes Lumber, and finally Lumber Unlimited until his retirement. Wayne met the love of his life, Virgie Melton, in the early 1970’s and they were happily married on August 31, 1972. Wayne and Virgie resided in Jacksonville until 1999 when they found their forever home in Sanderson. Wayne was a devoted husband, loving father and grandfather. He was passionate about woodworking and has made numerous furniture pieces throughout the years. He also enjoyed golfing, traveling to the mountains, camping, watching Atlanta Braves baseball, and attending Glen Baptist Church where he was a member for many years. More than anything, Wayne loved his family and enjoyed spending time with them. He was preceded in death by his parents; loving wife of 46 years, Virgie Lyter; son, Michael Moser; brothers, Morris and Earl Lyter; and sister, Jean Lyter. Wayne is survived by his loving children, Nancy Moser and Timothy (Patricia) Lyter both of Jacksonville, FL; sisters, Grace Wieder of Elmira, NY and Audrey Ritter of Hersey, PA; granddaughter, Brittney Lyter; and great granddaughters, Londyn and Zailyn.
