Lafe Edward Wiatt


On Sunday, December 22, 2019, God called Lafe Edward Wiatt home to be with Him.  He was born on October 26, 1969 in Indianapolis, IN. Twelve days after birth he was lovingly welcomed into the home of Larry and Esther (Paddack) Wiatt.

Lafe graduated from Southmont High School in 1988 and went on to attend college.  He worked for Moore Builders where he built mostly metal sheds, and also on the Wiatt Family Farm.  He enjoyed playing the drums, and other music, working on the farm, and driving a semi. He attended the Whitesville Christian Church. His beloved treasures were his kids, his dog “Scooby”, and his fiancé Sherri Lynn Sexton who has faithfully taken care of him for the last two years.

He is survived by his three sons; Tyler Wiatt, Roachdale, Todd Wiatt, Attica, and Brandon Wiatt, New Market, one grandson, Logan Wiatt, parents, Larry and Esther Wiatt, sister, Sharon (Jeff) Albertson, one niece, Zoe Albertson, two nephews, Gavin and Grant Albertson, and two uncles, Gordon (Jeannie) Paddack, Darrell (Cindy) Wiatt.

Lafe was preceded in death by his grandparents and uncle Glen Wiatt.

Funeral service will be at 2:00 PM, Friday, December 27, 2019 at Machledt & Servies Funeral Home, 301 E. Green Street, Waveland, IN, 47989, with Pastor David Bower officiating. Burial will follow in Hebron Cemetery.  Friends are welcome to visit with the family at the funeral home from 11:00 AM until time of service on Friday. Lafe was very proud of his son Brandon attending Bible School so memorials in Lafe’s memory may be made to Tri County Bank for Brandon’s Education Fund.
