Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
Darville Wakely Deveaux, 82, of Charlotte, passed away on Sunday October 25, 2015 at Novant Rowan Medical Center in Salisbury. Mr. Deveaux was born on December 23, 1932 in Nassau Bahamas to the late Robert Nesbitt Deveaux and Lillian Gertrude Wake. He proudly served his country in the United States Army.
Mr. Deveaux was a Jehovah’s Witness and he loved to witness to others about his faith. Darville worked as a Toll Booth Operator in the New York Transit System, which suited him perfectly, because he never met a stranger in his life. Darville was an avid reader, he loved life, he loved to travel, and he loved to spend time with his family and friends.
In addition to his parents, he is preceded in death by his brother-in-law and friend, Guy Kirton.
He is survived by his wife of 47 years, Carolyn Lorene Deveaux of Charlotte; a daughter, Stacy Deveaux Roberts and husband Jerome of Charlotte; a sister, Joan Valencia Kirton of Queens, NY; and his grand dog, Bella.
A Celebration of Life will be held on Tuesday November 3, 2015 at 12:00 PM at the Jehovah’s Witnesses Kingdom Hall at 6200 Wilgrove Mint Hill Rd., Mint Hill, NC 28227.
