Waverley Lahmeyer Traylor III went to be with the Lord on Jan. 4, 2017. He was the son of the late Francis E. and Waverly L. Traylor.         

Waverley was retired from the United States Navy as a Chief Petty Officer and was very well known as a submariner. After his Navy career, Waverley worked for two engineering firms, with the last one being EG&G. He also worked for the Isle of Wight County Sheriff’s Office as an animal control officer. He also loved to write and had published two books, one about the Dismal Swamp and the other about his father.

Waverley was also well known as “Santa Paws,” who, along with his wife, Margaret, delivered food and supplies to needy companion animals in Isle of Wight County for many years. It was their way to celebrate Christmas.
