Wayne was born on August 25, 1951, in Fargo, ND, the oldest “WWW” son of Warren and Betty (Albert)  Wilson.  He was raised and educated in Fargo and graduated from Fargo North High School.  Following graduation, he attended UND and played hockey for the Sioux. Wayne earned a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. Hockey was a big part of his life, playing in high school, college and also a few years of Double AA, before moving to Bismarck, where he started the Century High School Hockey program and was the first head coach.  He taught for over 30 years in the Bismarck Schools before retiring. Wayne was also a realtor and property manager in the Bismarck/Mandan area.

Anyone who knew Wayne knows the most important thing to him was his family.  Wayne loved music, dancing and giving advice.  A cabin on Big Cormorant Lake in Minnesota was one of his favorite places to spend time.

He is survived by daughters, Nicole (Bill) Grundel, Korie DeBruin and Stacey Wilson (Carl Bartell); Anita; grandkids, Levi, Logan, Lauren, Ben, Ethan, Madelyn and Birk; mother, Betty Wilson, Fargo; Brothers, William (Rhonda), Fargo, Warren (Sharon), Fargo, Wesley (Linda) Eugene, OR and Wade (Betty Jo), Fargo and many nieces and nephews.  He was preceded in death by his dad, Warren Wilson and son -in-law, Mike DeBruin. Wayne will be remembered as an engaged and loving son, dad, grandpa, brother, brother-in-law and uncle.
