May 2, 1942 - September 25, 2022

DeWayne Eugene Wirth, 80, of Prairie Farm, passed away peacefully at home on Sunday, September 25, 2022.

DeWayne was born in Menomonie, to Lorin and Eleanor Wirth on May 2, 1942.

He attended Prairie Farm schools and graduated with the class of 1960. He married Sally Mae Kahl on March 18, 1961 at St. Paul Lutheran Church in Ridgeland.

DeWayne was a little league coach in Eau Claire, and he enjoyed watching and participating in sports as well as being an avid hunter. He was a truck driver most of his career, working in Dallas and Eau Claire WI. His career was cut short due to rheumatoid arthritis, but the disease did not affect his work ethic or limit him from enjoying activities with his family and friends, including Wednesday night golf with his boys, grandsons, and wife.

DeWayne enjoyed vacationing in Mexico with the love of his life and his family. He also enjoyed traveling Wisconsin, including the annual ATV trip to Telemark with extended family.
