Lynton Crabtree Womble

d. April 29, 2016

Lynton Womble, 90, of 1958 West Third Street, Siler City passed away on Friday, April 29, 2016 at his home after a courageous battle with cancer. Lynton was born December 26, 1925, the son of Floyd Eugene and Delilah Elizabeth (Dillie) Ward Womble. He graduated from Siler City High School being in the first class to complete 12 years. Trained as a radio man he served in the Korean War. Following the war, Lynton worked for and retired from Alcatel-Lucent. He loved farming and following retirement devoted much of his time and energy to tending his cows. Lynton was a great sportsman, a softball pitcher of great renown and not bad with the bat. A St. Louis Cardinal fan to the end, he was also an avid fan of Jordan-Matthews team sports. He had a great pleasure watching the JM girls' softball games, attending a game this past Tuesday. In life, he led with his heart and represents unconditional love to one and all. He was a church man through and through and had a great love for Loves Creek Baptist Church and its members. Through the years, Lynton served the church as Sunday school teacher, Deacon, choir member and was always available to help in any way he could, especially helping with the men's breakfast as chief cook. Lynton was devoted to his wife, Fay Dean until her death in 2011. Lynton was a great story teller, had a fantastic memory and delighted family, friends, and caregivers with wonderful stories of his childhood and his life in general. He truly was a "gentle giant" of a man, always optimistic, saw the good in everyone and was a kind of kid himself to the end. In addition to his parents and wife, Lynton was predeceased by sisters, Leisel and Burdine Womble, Lila Brewer, Nancy Dunn, Emma Rue Yanchurak, and Mary Sue Womble (infant) and a brother, Lloyd Womble. He is survived by sisters, Irma Beal and Nadine Short, a brother-in-law Jerry Williamson (Elaine) and several nieces and nephews. The family wishes to express appreciation to Liberty Home Health and Hospice for their love and support and a very special thank you to his faithful caregivers, Faye Brooks and Regina Palmer.
