Wayne enjoyed his retirement and many family gatherings at their home in Pillager. From boat rides to golf cart rides to night missions. He loved his time on the water and as anyone can attest, he would get impatient waiting for everyone to board and you would hear the toot of the boat horn. Prior to settling in at their home in Pillager, he and Kathy raised their 3 children in White Bear Township where motorcycle rides, going to Van-in’s, and taking trips around Lake Superior occupied their free time. He had two significant careers, one as a computer programmer and then later in life he went back to his roots in manufacturing as a General Manager of American Excelsior. That led him to the position he retired from in sales for Falls Foam in Little Falls, MN.
The family would like to thank all of the Bigwater family; Dr. Philip (aka Dr. Phil) and the 5th Floor nursing staff at St. Joseph’s Cancer Center; Dr. Hilton and Staff at MRO Brainerd Radiation Therapy Center; and Marcene and the staff at Good Samaritan Hospice for their care and support.
