Rev. Robert Wayne Poston

March 31, 2022
Rev. Robert Wayne Poston, 76, passed away March 28, 2022, at his residence.

The Tennessee native was a Congregational Methodist Pastor serving in Louisiana, Texas, and Georgia before joining the South Georgia United Methodist Conference in the 70s and retired pastoring from Black Creek United Methodist Church in Newington. Robert loved music, genealogy, and was a loyal Tennessee Volunteers fan. Above all else he loved his family, spoiling his children and grandchildren.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Frank and Martha Wayne Powell Poston; son, Timothy James Poston; and brother, Franklin Poston.

Survivors include his wife, Joyce M. Poston; children, Missy Lee (Steve), Chris Poston (Mandy), Rob Spence (Juper), Chuck Spence (Hazel), and Shelley Spence (Jake Dent); 11 grandchildren; four great-grandchildren; siblings, Ralph Poston, Marilyn Hickey, Nancy Brasher, and Ann Hartman; and a number of nieces and nephews.

Services were held Friday, April 1, 2022, at Black Creek United Methodist Church.

Interment followed in the church cemetery.
