Wayne Alan Jesse, beloved husband, father, grandfather, and great grandfather left us on August 26, 2018. We are blessed knowing he has joined his wife of 65 years, Betty Joyce Jesse, in the hands of our Heavenly Father.

He was born to Julius and Margaret Jesse in Lorain, Ohio on July 16, 1932. He was the youngest of three children. He acquired a great love and admiration for trains and pocket watches because of his dad’s career in the railroad. He also acquired a great love for sour cream coffee cakes because of his mom’s career in the bakery!!!

Some of his favorite childhood memories were giving his Dad Ex-Lax as candy and telling us, “He liked it — for awhile”. He also cut off the tips of stick matches and put them in his brother-in-law’s pipe tobacco!!! He enjoyed fishing with his dad in Lake Erie as well as squirrel, rabbit, pheasant and deer hunting.

In 1952, he became an Airman 1st Class and would remain in the Air Force for four years. During this time, he met, fell in love and married his wife Betty on November 9, 1952. Five years later they welcomed their first baby girl, LoBerta Carol Davis. The three of them ventured onto different job opportunities in Arvada and Denver, Colorado. While in Denver, in 1961, they welcomed their second baby girl, Anita Kay Jesse. As a family, they moved many times, living in California, Nebraska, and Kansas. The true constant things in Wayne’s life were the love he had for God and the never ending support and love he had for his family. He was always involved in teaching Sunday School and served as a deacon in the church for many years. Wayne traveled a lot for his work but when he had down time he enjoyed playing cards with the family, building his own Roadster car, fishing, hunting, collecting guns and coins, and was a known trader and seller in flea markets. Another goal they reached was to visit every state in the United States and to visit several other countries! With kids gone and on their own, Wayne and Betty fulfilled one of their dreams and went to Saudi Arabia to help “turn the desert green”. He taught the people in Arabia to irrigate their own land and make it possible to grow their own crops. They both started an underground Bible Study in spite of the danger of punishment if they were caught. Wayne’s life was full and blessed by his relationship with the Lord, family and his country ... The United States of America. Wayne’s memory will continue through the lives of his daughters, LoBerta Carol Davis and Anita Kay Correll, and husband Tom, his two grandchildren Angela Kay Moore and husband Jonathan, Martin Alan Correll and wife Kaylyn, and eight great-grandchildren.
