Celebrating The Life Of Loved Ones

Alfred Dwain Waisner

Alfred Dwain Waisner, 82, of Albemarle, passed away Monday June 29, 2020 at Atrium Health Cabarrus, Concord, NC. His graveside service will be held 11am Wednesday July 1, 2020 at Luther’s Lutheran Church Cemetery, Richfield, with Rev. Jeffrey Hoffner officiating.

Dwain was born to Alfred Bean Waisner and Nealie Rummage Waisner in Stanly County. Preceded in death by his wife of 60 precious years to Ruby Iris Basinger. He is survived by his two sons, Charlie Waisner (Cindy) of Albemarle and Jeff Waisner (Kris) of Wadesboro, and two granddaughters Grasyn Anne Waisner and Cierra Lorch Waisner.

Dwain had a fondness for gospel music which led to singing lessons from Mrs. Pete Almond, where she decided that he had a talent that needed to be showcased with back-up singers. They were Dorothy Jean Rabon, Miriam Wilhoit, and Martha Burleson. This group sang at many churches and events. They made many appearances on multiple shows, such as the Arthur Smith Show. He gave thirty five years of service to Russ Helderman and Service Distributing Company, Inc. as a district manager. After retiring, Dwain spent most of his time greeting and servicing the community patrons of Charlie’s Grocery. He loved to see the familiar faces and keep in contact with daily ventures of their life. He is a member of Luther’s Lutheran Church. He was known for his selflessness, kind demeanor, and his unwavering faith in all that he did.

Memorials can be made to Luther’s Lutheran Church, 4955 Richfield Road, Richfield, NC 28137 or to the Levine Cancer Institute, 1021 East Morehead Medical Drive, Charlotte, NC 28204.

Stanly Funeral and Cremation Care of Albemarle is serving the Waisner family.

    So sorry to hear about Dwain’s passing. He was the best supervisor I ever had. He always had a kind word for you.If there was a problem, he always tried to help you instead of making you feel bad. He and his wife Ruby were great people. Praying for Charlie, Jeff, and their families.

    Jeff – It was great sadness when I heard about your Dad! I always enjoyed Mr. Waisner’s
    company during the times we were together. As I have mentioned before – and you
    have experienced – when the situation involves one of your parents that is a whole new
    deal compared to normal. Please accept my most sincere sympathy and know that he
    is in a place that all of us aspire to go someday. Your Friend – Marion

Stanly overwhelmingly met or exceeded our family’s expectations. Family and friends both expressed how thoughtful, caring and professional they were. We’re glad you’re in Locust!


We never felt hurried or rushed in any way even though they had other funerals that day.  Everyone at Stanly Funeral Home made us feel like we were family and did everything they could for us in this most trying time in our lives.


Everyone went out of their way to make sure that every detail was good with me.  Their kindness, patience and love they show is superior.  Stephen Aldridge and his ENTIRE staff are the best.


The whole staff was wonderful but Stephen Aldridge was excellent, even sending us a note one month later.
