Wayne Allan Bacon was born on February 21, 1955, the last of five children born to Walter and Wanda (Sandhagen) Bacon. He passed away peacefully at home. They moved around quite a bit in his younger years, finally setting up home on a farm just South of Garnavillo. He graduated from Garnavillo High School with the class of 1973. On August 17, 1974 Wayne married Becky Werges. Two daughters were born to this union.
Wayne had a place for everything and everything had a place. This was true of the dishwasher, his tools and the ever favorite pen which was tied to his desk. He shared his smart-wit ways with his daughters who loved to torment him a little, cutting the string of his pen shorter and shorter until he couldn’t use it. Wayne’s love for carpentry began as a high schooler. He enjoyed being a carpenter all of his working years. Wayne was a member of the Garnavillo Fire Department for 38 years.
Wayne is survived by his wife of 44 years Becky. Proud dad of daughters Nikole (Jeff) Hoeger and Samantha (Andrew) Woline. But his greatest blessings called him Grandpa-Lily, Carter, Colton, Tate and Brody. Sister Dianne (Gary) Torrey, Brother Marlyn (Laurie) Bacon, Brothers and Sisters-in-law Bill (Bev) Werges, Clark (Claudia) Werges, Paula Hubbard, Gay (Lynn) Hallberg, Tracy (Cheri) Werges, Teresa (Kendall) Strauman and many nieces and nephews and other relatives.
He was proceeded in death by his parents, sister MaryLou, brother David, Nieces Elaine and Erin and Nephew Dan and many aunts, uncles and other family members.
