Vance Robert Wynn

February 2, 1951 — July 14, 2022

Mr. Vance Robert Wynn resided in Selma NC until he entered into eternal rest Thursday, July 14, 2022.
He is preceded in death by his parents-Vance Wynn, Edna Johnson, and Roxie Wynn, spouse Betty Lou Wynn, and siblings- Lemon Williams, Kenneth Bell, Katie Lackey, and Stacy Bell. We know that they greeted him with open arms and are enjoying their reunion in Heaven.
To cherish his loving memory, he leaves behind 2 siblings in Benson-Cleo McKinnon (James) and Horace Bell (Vanessa).
His 8 children-Vance "Tony" Wynn (Jenifer), James Wynn, Ashley Wynn (Keisha), Shirley Smith, Lisa Mangum, Ricky Williams (Linda), Tonia Durant, and Anthony Magnum will continue his legacy.
He also leaves behind his special friend Cinquetta Brockington, a host of grand and great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, extended family, and many friends who will greatly miss him.
Vance was a very hardworking man with many talents. He ran a successful scrap iron metal business with his son Tony. As an experienced commercial truck driver, he also operated a dump truck for his son James. He served honorably in the US Military for many years. His most enjoyable moments were spending time with loved ones.
The family would like to thank everyone who has shown love and support during this difficult time. May God continue to bless the family and the many lives Vance touched.

~May these words give you comfort & hope

1 Thessalonians 4:13-18
Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope.
For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in Him.
According to the Lord's word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep.
For the Lord, himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first.
After that, we who are still alive and left will be caught up with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so, we will be with the Lord forever.
Therefore encourage one another with these words.
