Obituary of DeWayne Francis Rutherford, Jr.


DeWayne F. Rutherford, Jr., age 58 of Manassas, VA, passed away on March 10, 2019 at his residence.


DeWayne was born in NY to DeWayne F. and Janet M. Rutherford on April 17, 1960. He graduated from Osbourn High School in 1978 and worked as a CDL driver most of his life. He had been a long-time member of the Sons of the American Legion Post 10 and Loyal Order of the Moose, (1380/2165).

He was best known for his favorite phrase “HAPPY NEW YEAR” no matter what day it was! He was most always busy helping people as best he could whatever they needed. He had been helping care for his mother the past few years and playing chauffer for her many Bingo and Walmart outings.

Donations are greatly appreciated and can be made through the link to assist with the cremation service or to the family as desired.

The family wishes to especially extend their gratitude towards DeWayne’s friends Larry, Steve, and the Trammell family for their friendship and camaraderie and help with his recent projects.

DeWayne is survived by his mother, Janet of Manassas, and sister Anna Marie Utz of Bealeton. He was preceded in death by his father, DeWayne in 1983.
