Obituaries » William T. “Billy” Wayland

William Tamplin “Billy” Wayland, 78, passed peacefully on Thursday, March 11, 2021, in Sperryville, on the farm he lived and worked.

He was born in Front Royal on January 15, 1943, to the late John & Kathryn Wayland.

The love of farming was instilled in Billy at a very young age. He was driving tractors as early as 5 years old, standing to reach the clutch.

Billy could tell you the history on many brands of tractors and machinery. Massey Fergusons were his favorite by far. Many times over the years others came to Billy seeking advice on agriculture, specifically tractors and the raising of Angus cattle.

In later years when Billy had cut back some, he adored spending time with his wife, close family and friends, his border collie Lucy, and hanging out in his newest shop.

Billy loved to make people laugh. He had such a tender and caring heart. Billy will live forever in many hearts.

Billy is survived by his beloved wife of 17 years, Amy S. Wayland; three children, Jackie Wilk and her husband David of North Carolina, Jay Wayland of Sperryville and Tiffany Wayland West and her husband Corbin of Reston; a sister, Margarite Wayland Tupper of Washington, Va., and a grandchild.
In addition to his parents, Billy was preceded in death by his brother, J.D. Wayland, and his sister, Jacqueline Anne Wayland Fox.

A graveside service will be held at 11 a.m. Wednesday, March 17, at the Wayland Farm family cemetery in Sperryville.

Memorial contributions may be made to the American Cancer Society.
