Wayne Peveto

ORANGE — Wayne Peveto was born April 24, 1924 in Mauriceville, Texas, to Coleman and Mabel Clark Peveto. He passed from this life on April 8, 2014.

Wayne graduated from Mauriceville High School then served his country in World War II. He was drafted into the Navy and served on the submarine USS Pollack in the Pacific Ocean.

While stationed at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard in Kittery, Maine, he met Trudy Silsby. They married and returned to Mauriceville, where they raised their family. His beloved Trudy passed away December 14, 2013.

Wayne was employed by Bethlehem Steel as a ship fitter and retired after 34 years of service.  He truly loved to be at his home place, the land his family settled over 100 years ago in Mauriceville, farming, raising cattle and driving his tractor. After a hard day’s work, he enjoyed passing the evening in a rocking chair on his front porch.

Preceding him in death were his parents; brothers Merten Peveto, Ira Peveto, James Peveto, Malcolm Bruce Peveto, Emmett Peveto, Thurman Peveto and Elmo Peveto; and sisters Rene Reynolds, Lucille Peveto and Zula Pollard.

He will be deeply missed by his children, Coleman and wife Linda of Mauriceville, Coleen Owens and husband Aaron of Rosenberg, Steven and wife Renee of Mauriceville, Alan and wife Marilyn of Buna, and Melissa Mulholland and husband Brett of Bridge City; 10 grandchildren; 14 great-grandchildren; and one great-great grandchild.

 

Wayne’s family would like to thank Deanna Brown for her service as a loyal and loving caregiver.

 

Visitation will be Friday, April 11, from 5 to 9 p.m., at Claybar Funeral Home, 504 N. 5th St. in Orange. Funeral will be at 10 a.m. Saturday, April 12, also at Claybar Funeral Home.

 

Pallbearers will be grandsons Bruce Peveto, Shane Peveto, Michael Owens, Kyle Peveto and Patrick Owens; and great-grandson Casey Peveto.
