CELEBRATING 100 YEARS!

As he leads a tour of Sunny Slope Farm in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley, where the turkey industry entered the modern age, Charles W. Wampler Jr. wears a gimme cap on his head and a custom-made belt around his thin waist. The cap is stitched with the name Wampler-Longacre, the turkey growing and processing company that he once ran. The belt sports a silver buckle commemorating his 75th wedding anniversary in 2013.
Wampler’s accessories are steeped in about 1,000 pounds of pathos. Both the business and his wife, Dorothy, are memories now, two more important pieces of his life that he’s had to let go. But the hat and belt are also reminders of the things that have mattered most during Wampler’s 100 years on Earth: His skill at running a giant business that benefited the people of Rockingham County and his ability to nurture relationships over the long haul.
“Everybody loved him because he was, and still is, obviously, very personable,” says Harry Jarrett Jr., a grandson who now operates Sunny Slope as a special events destination. “He cares about people. He remembers people’s names. I don’t think he was just interested in building a multimillion-dollar business, which of course he ended up doing. But he really had a heart for the community.”
