Kevin Leon Wade, age 69, of Anderson, S.C., went to be with his Lord and Savior on Wednesday, Sept. 1, 2021.

He was born July 20, 1952, in La Cygne, Kan., and was the son of Evelyn Miller Wade and the late Norman Wade.

Mr. Wade held a bachelor’s degree in plastic technology as well as a degree in seminary. He worked in the family business in Kansas for 17 years and pastored for 10 years in South Carolina. After moving to Anderson, he and his wife were the owners of Concord Produce Market for 21 years, serving the citizens of his community with the best local produce around as well as the best selection of Christmas trees. Mr. Wade loved people, never met a stranger and always enjoyed a good conversation. He was a history buff and sports fan, especially cheering on the Kansas Jayhawks. His family was his pride and joy, and he loved spending as much time as he could with them.

Left to cherish his memory are his loving and devoted wife of 48 years, Daleine Gaylord Wade; mother, Evelyn Wade; children, Stephanie Brougher (Jeremy), Danae Sellers (Nathan), Jenna Wade and Caleb Wade; grandchildren, Jordan Wade, Elliana Brougher, Zane Brougher, Camilla Sellers and Leon Sellers; brother, Mark Wade (Jenise); sister, Roxanne Martin (David); and sister-in-law, Vicki Wade (Greg).

In addition to his father, he was preceded in death by his brother, Greg Wade.

The funeral service was held Sunday, Sept. 5, 2021, in the chapel of The McDougald Funeral Home with Pastor Butch Moore and Rev. Mark Pollard officiating. Burial followed at Memory Gardens in Clemson.
