To all my friends and relatives: “Remember me with smiles and laughter. For if you can only remember me with tears then don’t remember me at all.”
My precious little husband Wayne Dunham went home to be with the Lord Saturday, March 5, 2011 at Tahoe Pacific Hospital in Reno, Nev. Wayne was born in Bakersfield, Calif. and had made his home in Standish, Calif. for 30 years.
Wayne fought a hard battle of Lou Gehrig’s Disease. He wanted to live every moment he had left to be with his family and friends. Wayne’s enjoyment in life was get-togethers with his family and friends and wanted everyone to enjoy themselves. He loved to call his mom and pick on her, it made his day and hers. His other enjoyment was having a beautiful yard and home.
Wayne worked hard all of his life. He was a log truck driver for Sierra Pacific Industries, worked at United Rental, and was a tug driver at High Desert State Prison.
Wayne adored his daughters, Laura Solano and Shannon Dunham and their children, Derick, Kyle and Tyler Solano and Desiree and Kailey Galias, all of Reno, Nev. In addition to his loving wife, who cherished him, Shirley, and his children and grandchildren, he is survived by his mother Ila Faye Dunham, of Susanville; his sisters and brother-in-law, Sherry and Harold Barton, of Idaho; Darlene and Kent Bauer; Carol and Ray Thompson, both of Susanville; Delores Dunham, of Elko, Nev. and brother Dale Dunham and his wife Sandy, of Oregon. He is also survived by stepsons Jason Marceaux and grandson Jason Jr., of Susanville and Chris Lewis and wife Heather with children Jacob, John and Nicholas, of Thomasville, N.C. Wayne also loved his many nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his father, Grady Dunham.
A memorial service will be held at a later date.
