Wayne Lee Shoemaker, 89, of Fayetteville, Arkansas, passed away March 24, 2019. He was born October 24, 1929 in Callao, Missouri to Luther and Cora (Mallett) Shoemaker, and moved to Fayetteville with his family in 1983. Wayne was a warm-hearted and generous husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather who worked hard all his life and always provided for his family. He was a machinist by trade, but so many knew him from his smile and humor while checking people out at Sam’s Club for nearly the last 20 years. He will be very deeply missed. He became one of Jehovah’s Witnesses on May 1, 1951, and continued his faithful course all his life. He adored the bible’s promise of a future resurrection on a paradise earth when pain and death will be no more (Revelation 21:3, 4, Psalms 37:10-11, 29, Acts 24:15, Isaiah 26:19). His family eagerly awaits that resurrection when they can welcome him back and he will be young and healthy again.

Wayne was an only child, preceded in death by his parents and his beloved beautiful wife Cora Shoemaker, who he married on June 29, 1957 and was married to for 61 years until her passing on July 19, 2018. He is survived by 5 children: Rebecca Sanford, Janie Parker, Mark Shoemaker, Kelly Davis, and Kimberly Shoemaker; 16 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren; and many friends and loved ones too numerous to mention.

A memorial service will be held Saturday, March 30, 2019 at 4 pm at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses, 2837 N. Old Wire Road, Fayetteville, Arkansas 72703.

Arrangements are by Westfield Chapel Funeral Home in Springdale, AR. Condolences, memorials, and memories: www.westfieldchapel.com.

Mr. Wayne is going to be missed by so many people. While my kids only knew him as Mr. Wayne from Sam's, they looked forward to the smiley faces that he drew on the back of my receipt. It might not seem like much, but those smiley faces made a difference to the thousands of people that he came in contact with while at work. Sam's Club won't be the same without Mr. Wayne. I'm so thankful for the small snippets of time that I got to be near him as you could tell that he was a happy and Godly man that loved to spread happiness.
