Cary Wayne Wofford, 84, went to be with his Lord and Savior on September 28, 2018 in Dallas, Texas.

Mr. Wofford passed away after a long battle with dementia. He was born June 6, 1934 in Crockett to Lafette Wayne Wofford and Maisie Celeste (Moore) Wofford.

Cary spent the majority of his life in Tyler. He graduated from John Tyler High School in 1951 and continued his education at Tyler Junior College, Texas A&M and graduated from the University of Texas in 1955. After graduation, Cary was a proud Marine and served the USMC for 4 years.

Cary's passions in life were family and football, but mainly his loving wife Mary. "Gran Cary" was adored by his grandchildren. He was a great encouragement to them all! On any given weekend during the fall, Cary was watching either one of his grandsons play football or watching Texas football on television!

Cary was a member of Patriots Church in Tyler, Texas since 1973. The church was pastored by his lifetime best friend the late Albert Hill.

Cary was preceded in death by his wife, Mary of 37 years. He is survived by his son, Clint Wofford and wife Laura; step-son, Ray Harvey and wife Carol; step-daughter, Mary Harvey; grandchildren, Cody Wofford and wife Maggie, Mallory Wofford Hunter and husband Daniel; step-grandchildren, Grace Harvey, Harrison Harvey, and Hallie Harvey.
