At the age of two, his family moved to a farm near Bancroft, Nebraska.

One of his accomplishments was qualifying for the 1 mile race for state track.  In 1947, he and his brother, Glen started farming together.  On July 9, 1950, he was united in marriage to Bernice Munderloh at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Bancroft, NE.  To this union three children were born, Patty, Steven and Michael.

Wayne and Barney Fuller started the Cloverleaf 4-H Livestock Club, and made many memories.  After retiring from farming, he and Bernice managed the Covenant Cedars Bible Camp for several years.  They then moved back into Pender.  He also worked at the Farmers Union Co-op, Pender Sale Barn and was a Thurston/Dakota Fair Board member.  Wayne was a long time member of the Evangelical Covenant Church in Pender, where he taught Sunday School for many years.

He is survived by his three children, Patty (Dana) Arndt of Lincoln, NE, Steven (Mary) Meyer of Pender, NE, Michael (JoAnn) Meyer of Lincoln, NE; ten grandchildren and nineteen great grandchildren.  Wayne is also survived by brothers, Woody (Reva) Meyer of Missouri, Jim (Louise) Meyer of Missouri, sister-in-law Shirley Meyer of Bancroft, NE and many nieces and nephews.
