    Although we never had the pleasure to meet Wayne Dingman, we do know his daughter, Kathy and granddaughter, Jessica. From the stories we have heard about Wayne, he was very loved and had a great sense of humor and deep love for his family. Since we’ll all soon be joined as family by the marriage of Jessica & Ryan, we share in your loss of Wayne too. We hope that your wonderful memories of him will give you comfort during this time of sorrow. You are in our thoughts and prayers. Love, Wendy & Glenn

    Dingmon family, We are so sorry to hear of your loss. Wayne was a wonderful man. My father-in-law Randy was Wayne’s roommate at Pine River. Wayne was a very pleasant man to talk with and he loved little kids. He always seemed happy when our daughter, Emma, would go with us to visit. Sincerely, Scott Scherzer & Pam Mahin
