Aug. 11, 1943 - Aug. 20, 2012
A celebration of Waynes life will take place on Saturday, August 25, at 11:00 a.m., at the Sisters High School Auditorium, in Sisters, Oregon. Reception to follow.
Sound and clear of mind, Wayne passed peacefully away while walking in beauty and wonder here upon a highland path among the Sisters mountains wilderness. After 69 years he is survived by his wife, Terry; children, Iris, Marken, and Jason; siblings, Phyllis and Warren; grandchildren, Romy, Baden, and Cedric. As well as the hundreds and hundreds of children and athletes lives he touched during his privileged and honorable career as a teacher and coach. Wayne was deeply touched and inspired by each and every one of these relationships.
An incredible person, Waynes outside the classroom joys were many: He loved his family and friends, the outdoors, hiking, music, reading. He was an amazing cook and home brewer. In the last few years he enjoyed playing softball on several senior softball teams. He travelled the world in his youth. Wayne was an avid reader and learner whose intellect enriched every person fortunate enough to meet him.
Any donations please go to the Sisters High School Track & Field Program. Please add the memo line "In memory of Wayne Powell".
Redmond Memorial is in charge of the arrangements.
