Paul Wayne Repass

March 23, 1939 — October 24, 2022

Paul Wayne Repass, 83, Weber City, VA and formerly of Nickelsville, VA passed on to his Heavenly home on October 24, 2022.
Born March 23, 1939, Paul was an avid car enthusiast and loved his 1967 GTO that he restored, showing it at many car shows and cruise-ins. He also enjoyed racing and followed NASCAR, always rooting for the GM teams. He belonged to the Masonic Lodge #173 of Nickelsville.
Paul was a great storyteller and everyone who knew him enjoyed his many stories over the years. He even wrote and directed a play, “Honey on the Strings” at the Old Townhouse in Nickelsville in the early 1980’s. He also wrote many stories and articles over the years, being published in various media outlets. He was a Boy Scout Master and enjoyed adventures with his troops, once taking them to the Outer Banks for a road trip camping experience.
He was a lifetime farmer and worked as a supervisor with 20 years of service at AFG before starting up Southwest Tractor and Implement where he proudly served Scott County’s farming communities for 45 years. He also ran Snowflake General Mercantile from 1998 to 2006, where he enjoyed selling antiques, crafts, and homemade goodies, including his apple butter. He always looked forward to stirring up apple butter each fall with his family.
Of all his hobbies and adventures, his pride and joy was his family. He was so proud of each one of them, always making sure to let them all know every time he saw them. He loved them all with true unconditional love.
