MURFREESBORO, NC – Waylon James Prevatte, age 3, of Jay Trail, a precious little boy, went to be with Jesus on Tuesday, October 26, 2021. Even at his young age, Waylon touched many lives with his tender heart and huge smile. Waylon was born on September 13, 2018 to Robert John Prevatte, Jr. and Lindsey Marie Smith Prevatte in Suffolk, NC. He was always happy and had an infectious smile that always had him chuckling with laughter. Waylon loved swimming, Sonic, and most of all Super Heros with his favorite being Spiderman. Even though this is a great loss of a precious life, someone will live on because Waylon’s family chose for him to be an organ donor. He was loved by many and will be deeply missed by all.

Waylon was preceded in death by his maternal grandfather, Edward Mooring, his paternal grandfather, Robert John Prevatte, Sr., paternal great grandfather, his Robert Earl Prevatte, Sr., and his paternal great grandmother, Kathleen Powell.
