Wayne Frank Kniskern
September 24, 1953 – April 27, 2018
Wayne Frank Kniskern 9-24-1953 / 4-27-2018 Humble servant of God, loving husband, adoring father, true friend, caring teacher, encourager to all, an avid Miami Dolphins fan, and the best brother ever, Wayne is in Heaven with his Lord and Savior. Enjoying the Heavenly music and breathing the Heavenly air with no pain and no struggles. Only God knows the many lives, young and old, that were affected throughout Wayne’s life as a caring, kind teacher, and by the way he lived day to day, serving by example.
Wayne loved his pets, and all animals, as well as music, especially the Beatles. He appreciated the beauty of green grass, flowers and trees, birds and other creatures of the earth and brilliant sunsets. His backyard was a favorite place to be with the family to enjoy God’s creations. Wayne had a generous spirit and a kind heart, helping those he could, yet he worried that he had never done enough to make a real difference. Survived by the love of his life, Jane, and his children, Jennifer and Sean, beloved by Cindy and Pat Moore and family, “twin” sister Peggy Kniskern Wilson, Jordan Wilson Bell, Cameron Wayne Wilson, Kim Wilson, and best friend Jeff Hines. We will miss him every day.
