E. Wayne Argo, 73, of Bethany Beach went home to be with the Lord Thursday, Sept. 23, 2021, while surrounded by his loving family in the comfort of his home.
Wayne was born April 5, 1948, in Dover, son of the late Lambert Earl Argo and Marguerite (Dixon) Argo. He was a graduate of Dover High School Class of 1966 and obtained his associate degree from the University of Delaware.
Wayne made his career with Southern States Cooperative holding various positions within the company. After 34 years of service, he retired as director of independent markets. Following his retirement, Wayne started his own lawn care business, Wayne Enterprises LLC, that served the Bethany/Ocean View area. He enjoyed boating, reading and spending his winters in Florida. The most important thing was the love of his family, and he would faithfully be found attending all of his grandchildren’s school and sporting activities.
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his sister, Nancy Lea Argo, and nephew Lenny Legar. Wayne is survived by his loving wife of 51 years, Sandra (Timmons) Argo; three children, Patrick W. Argo and his wife Jenna of Millsboro, Kenneth W. Argo and his wife Leigh of Millsboro, and Susan Mutz and her husband John of Dagsboro; seven grandchildren, Grant Argo, Wyatt Argo, Arabella Oliva, Maxwell Oliva, Chase Mutz, Noah Mutz and Cale Argo; and a sister, Karen Sue Davis and her husband Roger of Felton.
