William T. McLendon Sr., also known as “Pee Wee” was born in Anson County, North Carolina on February 27, 1961 to the late Jimmy McLendon and Molly Marshall. 

He graduated from Bowman High School in Wadesboro, North Carolina.

He was well-known for his compassion for people and social friendliness.  No one can be sweeter than the Candy Man, who is always sharing candy with everyone.  Yet, he found a sweetheart of his own whom he dated and married.

He was a member of New Creation Church in Laurinburg, North Carolina, where he served as a Deacon. 

Left to cherish his memories are his wife, Mrs. Debbie McLendon of the home.

His children: Shaun Liles, Wadesboro, North Carolina; Alicia (Harold) Liles Revel, Lexington, North Carolina; William (Javonda Watson) McLendon Jr., Charlotte, North Carolina; Jeremy (Nyaisa) Wall, Wadesboro, North Carolina and Roderick (Deanna) Wall, Wadesboro, North Carolina.

His siblings: Henrietta (Willie) Caple, Andrew (Brenda) Marshall, Louis (Janice) Marshall, Roselee Kirby, James Neal McLendon, Robert McLendon and Bertha McLendon.

And a host of loving in-laws, nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

A memorial service to honor his life will be on Tuesday, May 12, 2020, 12:00pm, Smith's Memorial Chapel, 604 Salisbury Street, Wadesboro, North Carolina.

The McLendon Family will greet family and friends on Tuesday, May 12, 2020 from 11:30am-12:00pm at Smith's Memorial Chapel.

In light of the public gathering restrictions issued by the State of North Carolina due to COVID-19, the services are limited to family; however, friends are welcome to come during the visitation and speak with the family.

    One of the nicest people you could ever meet. Pee Wee was the same wherever you saw him. He was one of the first to offer condolences to my family when my husband Sammy passed away. Sammy had done work for Pee Wee in our bodyshop and when we bought the convienence store, Pee Wee stopped in often. It was always good to see him as he always had something funny to share. To know Pee Wee was to love him! I know you all will miss him, and the days ahead will be lonely with out him. But Pee Wee was a man of God and no doubt we know where he is! May God give you all peace and understanding in the days ahead.
