Jasper Wayne Tuten, 80, went Home on April 9, 2024 after a lengthy illness.

Jasper (Wayne), was born in Washington, NC on January 16, 1944 and graduated from Bath High School in 1962 and then obtained a business degree from Danville Technical Institute in Danville, VA. He married Frances “Annette” Paramore in 1963, had four children, and spent 60 years devoted to each other.

Jasper (Wayne) was a lifelong member of Everetts Church of Christ where he served as a board member for many years and as an Elder until his death. He worked hard for many years in the insurance business, farming, and as a small business owner until he finally retired from Perdue Farms in 2008, after which he continued to work hard at home and in his community. During the years his children were growing up, he served at Bath High School in the Boosters Club and PTO. He coached little league baseball for the Washington Youth Baseball League and spent many hours teaching kids to play ball and attending the games of his children and grandchildren. He loved working in his garden and his yard, woodworking, fishing, and was a sports enthusiast until his last day on Earth.

York, Glen Arnold, and Edgar Ray Paramore, Jr (Buddy), His mother-in-law Phrocine Boyd Paramore and father-in-law Edger Ray Paramore, as well as many of his close friends.
