Wayne was born December 25, 1942 in Storm Lake Iowa. He was the son of Dick and Bea Linden. Dick was Wayne’s stepdad, but Wayne was so proud to say, “This is my Dad”
Wayne graduated from high school in Early, Iowa in 1960. He proudly served in the Army in Vietnam from 1964 to 1968. On August 14, 1971 he married Jelane Sadler, daughter of Ralph and Theo Sadler at Rock Branch Church.

He was a member of St. Paul Methodist Church and was active with the veterans. Spending time with his family was very important to him. He enjoyed camping, fishing, going to his grandchildren’s activities, playing cards, and listening to Gospel music. He was always smiling and ready to give a helping hand.
