Wayne Tarr Obituary
WAYNE TARR Irrepressible, as always, on Friday, November 27, Wayne passed into a new realm of reality, leaving his family and many, many friends to wonder, "What kind of mayhem and mad delight is he instigating?" Born in Berkeley in 1939, Wayne attended Berkeley schools, and then Chico State College. He taught at Sequoia (Redwood City) and Montgomery (Santa Rosa) High Schools, until he joined Reader's Digest, school fund raising organization, QSP, in 1976, from which he retired in 2000. With high spirits and inexhaustible energy, Wayne participated in, organized, and succeeded in every imaginable activity. Along the way, he became an unofficial cheerleader for Cal, the 49ers, and the Warriors. He also opened three Tarr and Feathers Saloons with partner, Ed Hoeffer, and 49er players, Len Rohde, Randy Beisler and Caz Banaszeak. Wayne married after 47 years of blissful bachelorhood. He is survived by his wife, Bette, sister, Peggy McNulty and brother, Fred Tarr and Fred's wife, Marja. His nieces and nephews include Maureen, Sarah, Erin, Maggie and Scott, along with step-children, Matt and Kristan. He was the proud granddad of Kaisa, Jett and Rocket and great uncle of Jack, Ty, Drew, Kate, Eloise, Anson and Sawyer. Wayne was life itself to all the many who knew him. His memory will continue to enhance their lives for years to come. A gathering in his honor will be held early in the New Year.
