“Buckwheat,” as he was affectionately known, received his education in the public schools in Florida and Accomack County. In recent years, he accepted Yahweh as his personal savior and began studying His word.
Buckwheat was the life of the party and anyone in his presence was sure to be entertained. He was a jokester and kept you laughing. Buckwheat was full of love and shared it with many, especially with his children. He was an amazing father, son, brother, uncle, and friend.
In addition to his father, he was preceded in death by his grandparents, Louise Rogers and Wesley Simmons, Sr.; stepfather, Freddie “Case” Wilson; and a brother, Burt Epps.
Buckwheat leaves to cherish his fond memories: his loving mother, Joann Wilson; son, Dory M. Epps, Jr.; daughters, Ariel M. Epps, Synae Ivey, and Alexis Epps; sisters, Tequesta “Quest” Wilson and Diane “Missy” Ferguson; brothers, Derrick Epps and Roymond Epps; aunts, Shirley Wilson, Betty Bundick, Angela (Willie) Wilson, and Julia Kellam; uncles, Ronnie (Nita) Simmons; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives, and friends.
