Philip “PJ” Waisman, III
Philip "PJ" Waisman III passed away Sunday, July 22, 2018, at Spartanburg Regional Medical Center. PJ was the son of Philip and Karen Waisman of 131 Mallard Dr. in Columbus.
PJ was born on October 30, 1995 in Dunedin, Florida. He moved to Columbus, NC as a child and graduated from Polk County High School in 2014, where he loved being a cadet in the Polk County High School Marching Band and was a member of the Ski and Snowboarding team. He was active in the Boy Scouts and made it to the level of Life Scout. He truly was an amazing young man with a heart of gold who was honest to a fault. He had a witty sense of humor and had an infectious laugh. He was extremely intelligent in all ways and never missed an opportunity to share his knowledge and teach those who asked for help. He will be missed beyond words.
Surviving in addition to his parents, are his sisters, Rosemary (Bobby Mee) and Samantha (Miller Hogan), maternal grandfather, William "Pop Pop" Friedrich and paternal grandparents, Tina and Philip Waisman Sr. and many very loving aunts, uncles, and cousins.
A casual memorial service will be held Saturday, July 28 at 2:00-3:30 at the Steps to Hope Community Room at 60 Ward St. in Columbus.
