Obituary for Wade Clifton Laughter

Wade Clifton Laughter 80 of Rutherfordton went home to be with his Lord and Savior Saturday, June 22, 2019. He leaves behind his loving wife of sixty-two years, Margaret Creasman Laughter. Also left to cherish Wade's memory are his daughters Kathy Laughter-Fisher and husband Scott, Becky Laughter Dimsdale and husband John, and Lisa Laughter-Mitic and husband Mike. Wade was blessed to have five grandchildren; Michael Laughter and wife Genevieve, Clifton Cuthbertson, Morgan Laizure, Parker Laizure and Mattie Haynes. Wade also knew he would have a great-granddaughter arriving soon and it brought him great joy. He was preceded in death by his parents Carl Winslow Laughter and Mae Pauline Parker Laughter, a brother Jerry Laughter and a sister, Glenda Rhodes.
Wade was raised in the lumber industry and worked in that field his entire career. He fulfilled a lifelong dream and became owner/operator of A&L Lumber Company Inc. in Polk County NC, which he ran successfully with his wife for close to thirty years. He retired to their beautiful farm in the Shiloh Community and he enjoyed the remainder of his life loving the Lord, his family, his home and his dogs. He leaves a legacy of Christianity, integrity and humor which will be celebrated by all who knew him.
