Wilbur Lee Couch

Services will be Private

Wilbur Lee Couch, 79, was born in Oxford, Alabama and passed away in September, 2019. He was a resident of Newport News, Virginia for over 60 years. Wilbur worked for the Newport News Shipyard for many years before becoming a Hydrant Inspector for Newport News Waterworks, which he retired from in 1999. During his time at Waterworks, he received many commendations for his work and interaction with the public.

Wilbur was proud to volunteer and help others.  During hurricane Hugo, he was part of the crew who responded to assist Charleston.  Wilbur enjoyed working on his vehicles and kept his vehicles immaculate.  He enjoyed the thrill of playing the lottery, Nascar, and bowling. Wilbur was a member of Deer Park Baptist Church.

Wilbur is survived by his children, Kathy, Pam and Kevin; his five grandchildren, Cassie, Aimee, James, Kirsten and Stacey; and seven great-grandchildren. Wilbur loved his neighbors Megan and Alex and their sweet girls, Kailey and Alana who also called him Pawpaw.

A private Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. Arrangements are by Weymouth Funeral Home.
