Wayne Karl SETHER Obituary
Age 75 of New Brighton & Fort Myers, FL Preceded in death by parents Walter & Alice Sether formerly of Maplewood. Survived by loving wife of 48 years, Pat; daughter Laura (John Deisz) Sether, Cedar Falls, IA; son Steve Sether, Minneapolis; adored granddaughter, his "little Peanut", Lila Deisz, Cedar Falls, IA; brothers Donald (June) Sether, North Oaks & Richard (Patricia) Sether, Leesburg, FL.; many nieces & nephews. Wayne had a fulfilling 32 year career in the Mpls Public Schools as a teacher & administrator. During his retirement he filled his time with volunteer work, teaching computer skills to seniors at SeniorNet, teaching AARP 55 Alive classes, and serving for 10 years on the board of his FL condo association. Wayne was a talented woodworker and an all-around do-it-yourselfer who was never happier than when working on one of his projects. During his lifetime he traveled to at least 20 countries and enjoyed every minute of it. He loved winters in Florida and had a passion for learning on the internet; but more than anything he loved his family & friends. One of his great strengths was staying in touch with and bringing together extended family and friends. He will be forever remembered for this buoyant spirit, his humor, and his generosity in helping others. Special thanks to the caring staff at the U of M Masonic Cancer Center, the U of M Hospital, and especially the remarkable Dr. Erica Warlick, whose compassionate care and friendship sustained Wayne and his family throughout his illness. Memorial service 11 am Saturday in the Miller Funeral Home Chapel, 6210 Hwy 65 NE, Fridley with visitation 1 hour prior to the service. Memorials preferred to the University of Minnesota Medical Foundation Fund #1955 for MDS research. www.millerfuneralfridley.com (763) 571-1300
