Wayne T. Goldsberry, 92 of Lufkin, was born February 9, 1931, in Nat, Texas, to the late Clarence Goldsberry and Ammie Greene, and died Tuesday, April 18, 2023, in Lufkin.
Mr. Goldsberry was a jack of all trades. If it was broken he could fix it. He loved the beach and looked forward to the annual family trip. Mr. Goldsberry was a member of the U.S. Army and served in the Korean War, where he was awarded a purple heart for his service in the Korean War. Mr. Goldsberry retired after 35 years as a maintenance supervisor at the Texas Highway Department. What we will remember most about him is that he was a loving father. Mr. Goldsberry will be missed by many.
He is survived by his wife, Charlene Goldsberry, daughter and son-in-law, June and Jim Turner, daughter, Phyllis Boyer, daughter and son-in-law, Amy and Brandon Tyer, daughter and son-in-law, Sarah and Clayton Sargent, daughter, Sheri Smith, great-grandchildren, Elyssa Turner, Noah Turner, Sadie Tyer, Brody Tyer, Parker Sargent, and Wyatt Sargent.
