Wade Scully, 72, a native of Morgan City and a resident of Jackson, Miss., passed away Friday, June 15, 2012, at St. Dominic’s Hospital in Jackson.
Wade was born on Nov. 20, 1939, in Morgan City, the son of John and Noelie Delaune Scully.
He was an English teacher and senior counselor within the public system in Jackson for many years. He taught, advised and touched hundreds of student’s lives. Wade had a calling with adolescents who grew to adore and love him. He had a special gift of nurturing and guiding even the most lost kids to fulfill their life dreams.
He worked for L.H. Printing for many years and considered the Gray and Wells families to be extended family. He had numerous families and homes, because every life he touched became a special friend or family member.
His smile and Mississippi accent touched so many hearts and exuded a warmth, safety and spirituality that is really indescribable. He would have a nickname for you, based on the love and laughter that he felt on a genuine level.
For all who knew Wade and felt his love for the Lord, he is home now and finally at peace with God.
He will be remembered fondly and will never be forgotten.
He will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by three sisters, Audrey “Doot” Bailey and Lee Ann “Dee Dee” Acosta, both of Stephensville, and Nelda Daigle of Morgan City; one brother, Hubert “Shine” Scully of Bayou Vista; numerous nieces, nephews, many close special friends and special pumpkin heads.
