John Wayne Yount
Rev. John Wayne Yount, 72, of Stagecoach Road, died Wednesday, May 20, 2020 at Rex Hospital. He was born on September 20, 1947 in Durham County to the late John Ray Yount and Lora Mae Yount. He was a small business owner and pastor at Stovall United Methodist Church for 42 years. He was ordained in 1968 and served churches in Aurora, NC and Fayetteville, NC until he moved to Oxford. He was a veteran who served in the Navy and Marines.
He loved the Lord and the time he was given to preach the Gospel. He was a caring man who gave freely and unselfishly to his community and loved every minute of it. He loved his family and his church and was his happiest when he was riding his horses. His grandchildren were most precious to him and he always enjoyed seeing them. He will be greatly missed by many because of the lives he touched throughout his ministry.
Due to Covid-19, a private family memorial service will be held at Stovall United Methodist Church. Livestreaming will be available to view the service at 3PM on Sunday May, 24, 2020. You may access the funeral service by clicking on the following link:
