Weyman Earl Salter was born February 12, 1945 in Bainbridge, Ga., the son of Spencer and Hazel Harrell Salter. He was a graduate of Climax High School and attended Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College. Weyman married Diane Long in 1964 and they made their home in Southwest Georgia, recently moving to Alabama. He retired from Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. Weyman was a deacon and faithful member of Faith Baptist Church in Albany.

Faith and family were the driving forces for Weyman. He loved family gatherings and reminiscing about days gone by. He enjoyed the outdoors especially working in his yard. Weyman was a die-hard Duke Blue Devils basketball fan and believed anything could happen right up to the buzzer. Gospel music was his specialty and many memories were made on the road with Living Water Quartet.

Salter, Jr. and his wife, Amy, of Bainbridge, Ga., and Tanya S. Skipper and her husband, Josh, of Dothan, Ala.; his siblings, Barbara Ann & Wayne Shepard of Donalsonville, Ga., Rev. Conrad & Paula Salter of Vada, Ga., Hilda Bullington of Panama City, Fla., and Daryl & Barbie Salter of Albany, Ga.; his grandchildren, Zach & Hannah, Wesley & Christine, Macy & Anthony, HannahBeth, Taylor, and Morgan; and his six great-grandchildren.
