Obituary for Robert Floyd Wise Sr

Robert Floyd Wise, Sr., 87 of Cumberland, Virginia, passed away on Monday, June 27, 2022. He was born on March 21, 1935 to the late Lawrence E. Wise and Katherine Duke (Rainey) Wise. He was married 50 years to his loving wife, Mary Kathleen (Dize) Wise who predeceased him.

Robert spent all of his life doing what he loved, digging in the dirt. Be it excavating, grading, or laying pipe. Robert was one of the best. He and his son-in-law, Bill, began what became a thriving utility contracting business, Chesapeake Bay Contractors, in Virginia Beach. A business still being run by his grandsons. After retirement, he loved playing on his tractor, tending to his animals, and “piddling’ in the barn on his projects. He loved to take something that was falling to pieces and making it new again.

He is survived by his son, Robert Floyd “Bobby” Wise Jr., of Cumberland, Virginia, and his daughters; Robin Johnson (Charlie) of Portsmouth, Virginia , Sally Wise (Bill Shelhorse) of Virginia Beach, Virginia, Kimberly W. Thompson (Gary) of Cartersville, Virginia, five grandchildren, four great grandchildren, and one sister, Bertha Daugherty, of Newark, Ohio.
He was preceded in death by his parents, four brothers (Joe, Johnny, William and Sheppy Wise) and two sisters (Ethel Denton and Willie Wagner), and one grandson (Scotty Thompson).

A funeral service will be held on Friday, July 1, 2022 at 2:00 p.m. in the chapel of Puckett Funeral Home interment to follow at Oak Grove Cemetery, Cumberland, Virginia. Family will receive friends on Thursday, June 30, 2022 from 6:00PM – 8:00PM at Puckett Funeral Home.
