ROCK HILL, S.C. — Mr. James David Wylie, Jr. of 1516 Herlong Court, Rock Hill, SC passed away peacefully at his home on August 5, 2014 after a brief illness, with his family by his side.

A lifelong resident of Rock Hill, David was born on August 26, 1930 to James David (J.D.) Wylie and Blanche Sturgis Wylie. David was preceded in death by the praying parents he loved and respected.

As an only child, David grew up and reveled in the company of his many Wylie and Sturgis family relations and cousins. Later in life, his brothers and sisters-in-law loved him as a brother and David loved them right back. After graduating from the old Rock Hill High School in the first 12th grade graduating class, David married Mable Grier Clinton. From this union two daughters were born who were the “apples of his eye.”

In addition to Mable, his wife of 66 years, his daughters, Diane Wylie Thomas and spouse Dr. Goodwin Grove Thomas, Jr. of Rock Hill and Joyce Wylie Cox and spouse Albert Leslie Cox, Jr. of Sanford, NC, survived Mr. Wylie. David is also survived by his four grandchildren and five great-grandchildren, all of whom had the privilege, pleasure, and honor to be held and loved very much by their Granddaddy Wylie. He was proud of all his children.

For 50 plus years, David worked with his father at their family’s business, Wylie Texaco, one of the last full-service gas stations and garages in Rock Hill which was highlighted in an business article in The Rock Hill Herald on Sunday, February 19, 1995. They also ran Wylie Texaco, a Rock Hill oil distributor.

David was active in Rock Hill, York County and surrounding communities. He ably served in Jaycees, TPA of SC, Crescent Shrine Club and Masonic Lodge 111. He was a lifelong member of St. John’s United Methodist Church serving as an usher for many years as had his father before him. He was active in the Barber Hardin Sunday School Class, Methodist Men, and all other phases of Christian service at St. John’s where his service and leadership will be remembered and missed. David was a NASCAR fan from the beginning, especially of the Earnhardt family, attending many races over the years. David was a Gamecock fan, but he pulled for Clemson and N.C. State in support of his sons-in-law. He watched all sports all the time on television and was supportive of progressive politics and politicians.

David never met a stranger, he had a kind word to all, and he was willing to help anyone in need. David will be missed by his wife, his daughters and their families, and his many friends from all walks of life. He was a man’s man, his word was his bond, and he lived by the Golden Rule. David will be remembered as a kind and loving man, and he did his part to make the world a better place. As it was said about C.S. Lewis after his death in 1963, “His characteristic attitude to people in general was one of consideration and respect.” The same can be said about James David Wylie, Jr.

The family will receive friends at Greene Funeral Home Northwest Chapel, 2355 Ebenezer Road, Rock Hill, SC from 5-7 p.m. on Thursday, August 7, 2014 and others times at the home. Masonic Lodge 111 will perform the Masonic Rites at the beginning of the visitation. They will also receive friends after the service Friday in the Huddleston Hall at St. John’s United Methodist Church.

A Celebration of Life Service will be held on Friday, August 8, 2014, at 2 p.m. at St. John’s Methodist Church, 321 S. Oakland Ave., Rock Hill, SC with Rev. Debra Quilling Smith officiating. Burial will be held Friday, August 8, 2014, at 11:30 a.m. in Laurelwood Cemetery.

Memorials may be sent to St. John’s Untied Methodist Church, 321 S. Oakland Ave., Rock Hill, SC 29730 or one’s favorite charity.

The family would like to thank the St. John’s family, doctors, hospital staff, Home Health Care, Hospice and Community Care and many others that gave such kind and loving care to our husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather and friend David Wylie. Rest well, good and faithful servant. We know you are in heaven with Jesus walking those streets of gold.
