Wallace Randolph Highsmith, of Covington, passed away December 19, 2019, at the age of 82. Mr. Highsmith was a proud veteran of the United States Marine Corps. In addition to combat, he served the Marine Corps as a cross country chaser - primarily responsible for escorting military personnel between law enforcement or detention facilities. Mr. Highsmith retired from Billy Howell Ford after 25 years of unprecedented service. Based on his performance, he was nominated to be featured in the 2020 Marquis Who's Who Magazine, an honor that truly reflected his passion and dedication to a job he loved. Of the Episcopal faith, Mr. Highsmith was the youngest acolyte at the episcopal church in Brunswick. When he was not working, he loved visiting his homeland, the Georgia coast, and especially enjoyed crabbing. He was well-respected by his peers, loved immeasurably by his family and will be missed by all!
Survivors include his adoring wife of more than 50 years, Doris (Starling) Highsmith; daughter, Elaine Highsmith; sons, Brett Highsmith, Eric Highsmith, Jon Michael Highsmith; three grandchildren; as well as three great-grandchildren.
To honor Mr. Highsmith's wishes, his family will disperse his cremated remains along his most treasured destination, the Georgia coast, in celebration of a life well lived.
