Wayne Eugene McVay, 82, Logansport, passed away Friday, January 6, 2022, in the Monticello Healthcare Center.

Born December 12, 1940, in Flora, he was the son of the late Everett Wendell and Thelma Olive (Baker) McVay.

On November 1, 1981, he was married to Regena Ann “Reggie” (Francis) McVay, who survives.

Wayne was a 1958 graduate of Camden High School. He went on to proudly serve in the United States Army during the Vietnam War. Spending nearly two of his four years on foreign soil, Wayne earned the rank of Sergeant in the 100th Engineer Company Bridge Section.

In 2013, Wayne retired from Matthew-Warren where he had worked as a grinder for over 40 years. He was happiest when he was busy and he was a good provider. Many years ago, he had leased the Sunoco gas station at Main & Burlington. His hobbies might even be considered work to some, but to Wayne, he loved farming. Just spending time on the farm meant the world to him.

Surviving with his wife Reggie, are two stepchildren and their spouses, Rachel Ann Marguerite Scruggs Arnett and her husband, Daniel, and Richard David Scruggs and his wife, Samantha; six siblings, Marvin (Terry) McVay, Lyle (Madie) McVay, Roger McVay, Anita Miller, Linda Gulley, and Connie Davis; seven grandchildren, Wade McVay, Brandon, Paul, Colton, and Austin Scruggs, and Keaton and Carter Babb; three great-grandchildren, Rockne Scruggs, and Waylon and Weston Babb; and many nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by three sons, Gene McVay, Rockne Scruggs, Jr. and Danny Spencer; and sisters, Carolyn Spitler, Virginia Niman, and Faye Milligan; and one brother, Darl McVay.

Visitation will be held from noon until the time of the 2 p.m. funeral on Tuesday, January 10 in Fisher Funeral Chapel with Pastor Teri White officiating.

Full military honors will be accorded at the start of the funeral service by members of the United States Army Honor Guard as well as the Cass County Honor Guard. The Indiana Patriot Guard will assist. Burial, at a later date, will be in Marion National Cemetery.
