Wayne Gaskins

October 20, 1952 ~ January 27, 2020 (age 67)


Mr. Wayne Gordon Gaskins, 67, of Bloxom, VA, passed away on Monday, January 27, 2020 at Riverside Shore Memorial Hospital in Onancock, VA.

Born October 20, 1952 in Nassawadox, VA, Wayne was the son of Phyllis D. Young of Onancock, and the late Warner Gardner Gaskins. He was a lifelong self-employed mechanic.

At an early age, Wayne was baptized at Zion Baptist Church in Parksley, VA, and remained a Christian throughout his life.  He enjoyed reading the Bible, quoting scriptures, and hosting Friday gatherings in his garage, with music, fellowship, food and fun. Wayne had a generous nature, never charging what he should have to clients, family and friends, for automotive repairs.  He was an animal lover, including his three cats, Big Boy, Tigger and Kelly; and liked to go to flea markets, yard sales and thrift stores.

In addition to his mother, survivors include his daughter, Amber Marie Gaskins of Chincoteague, VA; a brother, Barry D. Gaskins of Seattle, WA; two sisters, Rita F. Hardison and husband Ken, of Watts Bay in Wallops Island, VA, (their daughters, Mindy Barber, Tammy Watford and Stacy Chaback; and grandchildren: Blake, Riley, Tyler and Laci); and Connie M. Owens and husband Tommy, of Greenbush, VA (their son, Josh Owens and wife Brittany; and grandson Zach); and his girlfriend of six years, Judy Franko (mother of Mark Franko, and her predeceased son Michael Gladding, Jr.).

Following Wayne’s wishes, a private burial will be held for family.
