WILEY James Villines was a devoted family man who rarely missed the annual reunions back in his hometown of Roxboro, N.C., and any other gatherings of his extended family.
"He possessed a profound love and sense of loyalty to his family," his family said in an obituary. And at these gatherings and other social events, Wiley was the life of the party and was not the last to hit the dance floor.
Wiley Villines, an employee of the old Reading Railroad and the former Naval Supply Depot in Philadelphia, a six-year Army veteran who manned heavy equipment in the South Pacific in World War II, died June 10. He was 90 and lived in the Saunders House, in Wynnewood.
