Welcome to the memorial page for

Mr. Willie Lee Spry

May 13, 1959 ~ May 2, 2018 (age 58)

Willie Lee Spry was born on May 13, 1959 in Manning, South Carolina to Gabe and Willa Mae Spry.  He entered Heaven’s gates on May 2, 2018. 

Willie gave his life to Christ and was baptized in the Jordan River as a child, while a member of St. Matthew Baptist Church.  He was the second of five children. 

Willie was educated in the public schools of Clarendon County and was a proud Manning Monarch, Class of 1977.  He graduated from the University of South Carolina in 1982 with a Bachelor of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering.  Previous to graduation, he accepted a position with DuPont at Savannah River Works.  He progressed through the company and lived in North Augusta, SC, Beaumont, TX, Placentia, CA, and Tustin Ranch, CA eventually heading the sales organization for DuPont North America. 

From the marriage of Willie and Goya came two children, Allison and Allan.  He owned several patents, and enjoyed retiring so he could maximize his entrepreneurial craft.  He relocated to South Carolina in 2001 to launch his own company, WA2 Enterprises, LLC in honor of his children. 

Willie loved watching football games, but none mattered more than those of his son Allan Spry.  He enjoyed driving to Baton Rouge to support his son and partake of Cajun cuisine.  He found joy in mentoring youth and challenging young men to attain all their dreams and remain successful. 

His passions included watching basketball games, tennis matches, traveling the world, and enjoying the simplicities of life.  He liked jazz, comedy, and loved taking his family to tour homes and attend car shows.  He was a parking volunteer at Brookland Baptist Church Northeast each Sunday in the extreme weather, and enjoyed being a servant for the Lord.  The pride of his life was his children, and his joy came from watching his only grandchild, Trey develop and grow.  Through all his health challenges, he never complained, and remained a believer in the goodness of God’s grace and mercy.  His meek and humble spirit will be missed by all.  His life was an example of his faith.

Willie leaves to cherish memories to his daughter, Allison (William, Jr.) Waymyers and son, Allan Spry all of Blythewood, SC; mother, Willa Mae Spry of Columbia, SC; sisters, Carrie and Mable Spry, of Columbia SC; brothers, Curtis Spry and Gabe Spry, Jr., both of Sumter, SC; grandson, Trey Waymyers of Blythewood, SC; and a host of other loving relatives and friends.
