Wade Carter Plumlee, formerly of Exeter, Calif., departed this life on July 4, 2019 at his home in Niangua, Mo. He was 59 years old. Wade was born on April 25, 1960 to Winford Carter and Margaret Ellen (Turner) Plumlee in Exeter, Calif.
Wade owned his own trucking business for many years and always seemed to have a few head of cattle around. He always brought out the best in others. He was full of life and humor and had a contagious laugh. He wasn’t perfect, but you would be hard pressed to hear anyone say anything bad about him. He lived a good life and he died a happy man.
He was preceded in death by his parents. Wade is survived by son Tim Plumlee and wife, Brandi of Bend, Ore.; daughter Jennifer Peeples and husband, Steven of Exeter; three grandchildren, Tim Plumlee, Olivia Peeples and Juliana Peeples; brother, Roy Plumlee and wife, Jonell of Exeter; sister, Meredyth Frank of Exeter; as well as his nephews, relatives and friends.
A celebration of life will be held at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 10, 2019 at Whitney’s Wild Oak Ranch, 30162 Road 192 in Exeter. Condolences may be made at smithfamilychapel.com. Arrangements by Smith Family Chapel in Exeter.
