Wayne Devon Slaymaker, a resident of rural Warsaw, passed away peacefully at his home with his wife at his side on Tuesday, April 26, 2022. He was 88 years old. Wayne was born in Crown Point, Indiana on January 2, 1934, the son of Myron and Verna (Leedy) Slaymaker.
On February 13, 1999, Wayne married Diann Spry. Diligent and hard-working, he worked as a master mechanic constructing roads and highways. Wayne thoroughly enjoyed moving dirt – a basement, a pond, a septic system – or maintaining and repairing the equipment to move the dirt for a road or to extend an airport runway. He was a member of the Masonic Lodge and the Order of the Eastern Star where he enjoyed filling in as a walking candidate. Wayne also enjoyed piloting his plane, target shooting, traveling, and was an animal lover. A strong but quiet believer in God, Wayne will be remembered as a kind-hearted man who was always considerate and willing to help others.
Wayne will be deeply missed by his wife, Diann; children, Roy Slaymaker and Sam (Carol) Slaymaker; grandchildren, Andrew (Kimberly) Slaymaker, Brittney (Craig) Brosman, Nicole Slaymaker, and Jennifer Slaymaker; great grandchildren, Avery Slaymaker and Harper Brosman. He is further survived by his brother, Wilbur (Carol) Slaymaker; and sister, Dorothy Mitterling.
