Wayne Allen Wurzer

Wayne Allen Wurzer, devoted husband and father and dedicated journalist, died Dec. 16, 2012 after a courageous 21/2 year battle with cancer. He was 50.

Wayne was born July 19, 1962 in Gardena, Calif., and graduated with honors from California State University, Fullerton with a degree in Communications. He earned a Master of the Arts in Applied Behavioral Science from Bastyr University.

Wayne was a first-class journalist, working for eight years at The Seattle Times as a reporter and editor and later at The Seattle Post-Intelligencer as a copy editor. He was a gifted writer who worked with content at Microsoft, CitySearch, Group Health Cooperative, Ronald McDonald House and his family-owned business, All That Dance.

Wayne's love of writing was only surpassed by his love for his children and sports. Coach Wayne could be found on the fields of Seattle coaching his beloved twin boys in soccer and baseball for over five years. Wayne was a calm, caring man who never lost his sense of humor, flashing that crooked smile even through the pain of his illness.

Wayne is survived by Maygan, his loving wife of 14 years; their 9-year-old twin boys, Jackson and Tyler; daughter Whitney Davis and her husband, Scott; two grandchildren, Jordyn and Isaac; parents Richard and Sue Wurzer; brother Ron; and sister Leslie.

A memorial service to honor Wayne will be Friday, Dec. 21 at 2 p.m. at the Center for Spiritual Living, 5801 Sand Point Way NE, Seattle. Read Wayne's inspiring story and share your memories of Wayne for his children on his guest book at www.caringbridge.org/visit/Waynewurzer.

Maygan, Tyler and Jackson,
My heart goes out to all of you for the loss of your husband and father. Wayne put up a valient fight and I am so very sorry for your loss.
I had heard about this family as being one of the "twins club" members that the Duffy's talked about, and I first met Wayne at your dance studio. I went with Christy to help with Owen and Jack as we all danced in a circle trailing silk scarves, and yes, Wayne was there too,helping, directing and guiding the activities of each class as these babies grew into toddlers. Such fun!
It has been a privledge knowing the Wurzer family and the head of this family will be sorely missed by all he touched.
Our Sincere Condolences,
Bob and Ellie Keolker
