Cecil A. "Doc" Wainwright, Jr. passed away on September 6th, 2021 at the age of 61. He was born January 1st, 1960, to Cecil Wainwright, Sr. and Doris Poole Wainwright. He was the first baby of the decade of the 1960s born at Singing River Hospital in Pascagoula.
He is preceded in death by his parents Cecil and Doris Wainwright and other family and loved ones that have passed on before him.
Doc is survived by his wife of 41 years, Nina Wainwright; his daughter Angela (Michael) Gibson and their children Jonathan, Jacob, Luke, and Sarah Joy; his son Derek (Susan) Wainwright and their children Anna and Isaac; and all of his other family, church family, friends, and loved ones.
Doc was pastor of Independent Church of God for over 20 years. He also worked as a commercial fisherman for over 50 years. Doc never met a stranger and loved to jump in and help anyone in need. He gave his time, money and anything he could to others and did it with a cheerful heart.
He was an avid outdoorsman, his love for the outdoors was contagious. His favorite time of the year was deer hunting season, but he loved to hunt and fish anytime he could. He would even pay for his hunting lease with the fish he caught as a commercial fisherman.
He loved with his whole heart. He loved Jesus, his family, his friends, his church family, and even strangers on the street. He was humble, compassionate, and so steadfast in his faith. He wanted the whole world to know Jesus. That was his life’s purpose.
He had a lot of sayings, such as "I just can’t understand how somebody can say they are a Christian and then say they are bored. There’s too many people out there that need help for anybody to be bored."
Celebration of life services will be held at Independent Church of God in Irvington, AL on Tuesday, September 14th, 2021 at 6 PM. Visitation will take place before the service from 4 PM until 6 PM.
