    Dewey L. Wilfong
    Dewey Lyle Wilfong, 79, a well known business man of Parsons, W.Va., and a resident of Holly Meadows, Parsons, departed this life early Thursday morning, Dec. 16, 2004, at his home. He had been in declining health.
    He was born Oct. 8, 1925, at Bartow, W.Va., a son of the late Elmer L. Wilfong and Clara Mae Washburn Wilfong. He was formerly married to Gail Ruth Ours Jenkins, who survives. Surviving is his fiancee, Dorothy Poling.
    Also surviving are one son, Daniel L. Wilfong of Parkersburg; two daughters, Alana W. Minear of Charleston and Ginger Showalter of Fairmont; four grandchildren, Brandon L. Wilfong of Elkins, Daniel K. Wilfong of Morgantown, Stacey E. Minear of San Diego, Calif., and Christina Willink of Parkersburg.
    He is the last surviving member of his immediate family, having been preceded in death by one son, David Wilfong; four brothers, Edward Gray Wilfong, Franklin D. Wilfong, Eugene Wilfong and Robert Blair Wilfong; and one sister, Dolly L. Roy.
    He attended the schools of Randolph County. He served with the United States Marine Corp. He was a championship boxer. He had more than 50 years of business development experience in the State of West Virginia. Because of his strong community ties and his business acumen, he is a two-time "Distinguished West Virginian" award recipient, "West Virginia Entrepreneur of the Year." He was awarded "Tuckineer of the Year" during the year 1986 and he was awarded "Tucker County Farmer of the Year." His extensive business expertise and leadership skills have been instrumental in shaping the City of Parsons as well as our state. Working with other businessmen, he was part of a group instrumental in bringing Kingsford Charcoal to Tucker County. He was known for possessing both the vision and execution needed to succeed, he identified a need for trucking for the different plants located in and near Parsons. After the flood of 1985 devastated the town of Parsons, Mr. Wilfong was instrumental in using his resources and expertise in working with the Corps of Engineers and Senator Byrd in, not only developing a plan for reconstruction, but also in gaining additional funds from Washington to raise the height of the flood walls. With the determination of the Cookie Ladies in raising money for fuel and other labor costs and Mr. Wilfong providing expertise and equipment, the dredging process was expanded from the town bridge to the upper end of the pulp mill bottom. He was president and CEO of D&W Truck Lines, Tucker County Diesel, Performance Motors, Harrison Warehouse and Parsons Logistics and as such was responsible for overall company operations and market development. As one of the largest employers in Tucker County, he was always seeking business opportunities and strategic alliances with the growth and development of the City of Parsons foremost in his mind. He has consistently worked with governors, senators and congressmen throughout his lifetime in shaping the economic development of the state. A member of the House of Delegates has stated, "The state has lost a true leader."
    The family will receive friends from 3-5 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. Saturday at the Lohr & Barb Funeral Home of Parsons. Final rites will be 2 p.m. Sunday at the funeral home, with Pastor Allen D. Crosten officiating. Entombment will follow at the Mountain State Memorial Gardens at Gilman.
    The family suggests that expressions of sympathy be in the form of memorial contributions to the Wilfong/Minear Endowment Scholarship Fund, 100 Campus Dr., Elkins, WV 26241.
