WAYNE FREDRICK SIEMSEN, 62
Wayne Fredrick Siemsen died at the age of 62 as a result of an auto accident March 30, 2020 in Godley, Texas. Wayne was born Sept. 27, 1957 to Helmer and Verona (Peterman) Siemsen.
Wayne graduated in 1976 from Ellsworth High School. He married Susan Snook May 26, 1982. After jobs at the local salt mine and with Missouri Pacific Railroad, he settled into a successful 32 year career in wine sales, which allowed Wayne and Susan to live in several states including New Mexico and Colorado, where they became avid snow skiers. After a move back to Lawrence, Kan., their daughter Natalie was born.
Eventually settling in Godley, Texas, Wayne and his family developed a love of animals, adopting several. Wayne was active in Natalie’s school band career, never missing a performance. Wayne loved music, photography, and was a die-hard Kansas City Chiefs fan, and was thrilled to see his beloved Chiefs win the Super Bowl.
Wayne was a loving and devoted husband, father, and brother, and was a friend who showed compassion to those in need. He had an infectious personality and sense of humor. Wayne gave 100 percent to life every day, and loved Susan and Natalie immensely. He will be greatly missed by his family and friends.
Wayne is survived by his wife of 37 years, Susan; daughter Natalie; sisters May Anderson, Ellsworth; Sandy McCoy, Mulvane; Linda Webber, Ellsworth; and brother David Siemsen, Salina.
A graveside memorial service will be held at 11:00 a.m., Saturday, September 26, 2020 at Ellsworth Memorial Cemetery.
Wayne loved God and his country, and appreciated those who fought for both; memorials may be made in Wayne’s name to the Wounded Warrior Fund at www.woundedwarrior.com.
