November 30, 1953 - June 8, 2021
Francis Wayne Nobles of Conway, age 67, passed away Tuesday, June 8, 2021 at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston surrounded by his family. Born November 30, 1953 in Conway, he was the son of Molly Nobles and the late Rev. Earl Nobles. Wayne loved his church, Trinity United Methodist Church in Conway, and was a proud and active member of the choir. He loved being a teacher for over 30 years throughout Horry County and took pride in all facets of education by organizing field trips, tutoring students, leading student organizations, and always challenging his thousands of students to be better. He adored his fellow teachers and they remained good friends throughout his life. He loved people, was an incredibly hard worker, and loved music and the arts. He enjoyed his years with Vocal Edition and the Theater of the Republic. Surviving are his mother, Molly Nobles; his wife of 40 years, Karen Floyd Nobles; his daughter, Adrianne Nobles Anderson (Luke) of Surfside; two granddaughters, Calista Marie Anderson and Eleanor Elizabeth Anderson, who were the apples of his eye, and he was their Pappy Wayne; his brother Dennis Nobles (Debbie) of Florence and his sister Kay "Kukka" Nobles of Conway, as well as his sister-in-law, Olivia Garren of Conway; three nieces Dawne Oliver (George), Tammy Hughes (Thomas), Ilissa Nobles and a nephew, Wesley Nobles (Stephanie). He dearly loved his giant family and his cousins were his best friends. Wayne taught us all what it meant to fight for life and enjoy it and enjoy those you love, and we were blessed to have so much more time with him, he was our own real life "Iron Man." This would not have been possible without the extensive support and service of his physicians, especially Dr. Billy Jackson in Myrtle Beach and the Heart Failure Team at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston. Funeral services will be held at 1:00 PM Monday, June 14, 2021 at Trinity United Methodist Church in Conway with Rev. Tresco Shannon officiating. Burial will follow at Rehobeth Baptist Church Cemetery in Galivants Ferry. The family will receive friends from 3:00 to 5:00 PM Sunday June 13, 2021 at Goldfinch Funeral Home in Conway. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Trinity United Methodist Church Building Fund, P.O.
