Harry “Wayne” Yonce, 75, of Franklin, died on Thursday, March 5, 2020.

Born in Macon County, he was the son of the late Gay and Elda Roper Yonce. In addition to his parents he was preceded in death by his wife, Sally Wideman Yonce; sisters, Kathleen Yonce Conley and Gladys Yonce Miller and a brother, Homer Yonce. He was also preceded in death by his beloved dog, Molly, who was always by his side after his wife passed. Wayne proudly served his country in the US Army for a short period before being medically discharged. He was an avid antique collector/dealer in addition to his building. One of his specialties was disassembling and moving old log cabins which he did a lot of in his later years, not just locally but all over the country. Wayne loved calling Macon County home and was somewhat of a history buff about the area and the people; he was a member of the Macon County Historical Society. Many of his collections can be seen at the Macon Historical Museum. Wayne was of the Christian Faith and enjoyed spending time with his close friends, a lot of whom he shared many meals with at the Sunset restaurant over the years.

Wayne is survived by a brother, Terry Roper of Franklin; two sisters, Betty Hord and Peggy Sanders of Franklin and many nieces and nephews.

There are no services planned.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to Appalachian Animal Rescue, PO Box 81, Franklin, NC 28744 or Macon County Historical Society, 36 West Main Street, Franklin, NC 28734.

Macon Funeral Home is handling the arrangements.

Our family will always have a wonderful memory of Wayne and is love of antiques and barn wood. Each time we pass his workshop we talk about the old log cabins and how he treasured his hometown of Franklin. He will be missed.

I met Wayne years ago when I was working at Highlands Hardware. He was such a nice person. Always had a smile and something to say to you. Sending prayers for his family.
