Grateful for having shared his life are his wife, Blanche of Kimball, SD; his son, Richard (JoAnn) Varni of Sparks, NV; two grandchildren: Jason Varni of Garner, NC and Marissa Varni of Sparks, NV; one great-granddaughter, Brielle; Blanche's children: Linda (Bob) Valley of Champlin, MN, Vicki (Tom) Toupal of St. Cloud, MN, Kevin Stenson of Lisbon, ND and their families; one brother, Fred (Evelyn) Wright of Brea, CA; one brother-in-law, Eugene Miller of Odessa, TX; along with many nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Hiram and Eula Wright and a sister, Bobbye Jo Miller.

The family would like to express their deepest gratitude to the staff of Aurora-Brule Nursing Home in White Lake, SD, and Avera at Home Hospice for the loving care Wayne received while in their care and to all of his good friends at the Kimball Senior Center for their years of love and friendship.
