Wayne E. Host

75, of Bowerston, passed away at his home on Saturday, February 27, 2021. Born in Dennison on February 2, 1946, he was a son of the late Charles Curtis and Mary Hazel (Copeland) Host. A 1964 graduate of Conotton Valley High School, Wayne was a resident of the Bowerston area throughout his life, with the exception of the time that he proudly served his country in the U.S. Marine Corps during the Vietnam War. After several years in the local claypipe industry, he spent much of his career at Duplex where he was a foreman. He will be remembered as a talented handyman who could fix anything and was always ready to go above and beyond for any friend or family member. He enjoyed trips to Wheeling with his brothers, was an avid baseball and football fan, and loved to cheer on the Ohio State Buckeyes.

Wayne is survived by his brothers, Kenneth (Goldie) Host, Charles "Tom" (Barb) Host, and Robert Host with whom he had resided; two sisters; two uncles, Dean Copeland and George (Shirley) Copeland; a sister-in-law, Bootsie Host; and a number of nieces and nephews, including Lisa Custer and Rob Host with whom he was especially close. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his brother, Harold "Keith" Host.

According to Wayne's wishes, cremation is planned without a public visitation or service. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the donor's favorite charity.

Dear Kenny, Tom, Bob, Dean, George, and Family,
So very sorry for your loss. I was in elementary grade school and a few
years of junior high with Wayne at Bowerston Elementary School prior to myself and my father John and mother Dorothy moving away from the Bowerston area in 1957. Wayne, myself, Harry Johnston, Danny Chew, Allen Cecil, Chuckie Decker, and Gene Warner were a pretty tight knit group during the days we were in school together. We all had fun together in a good way. I will never forget the white Chevy Chevelle SS Wayne had. I believe it was a 1969 and it was built to run on the drag strip. It had all the bells and whistles. My sympathy, condolences, and prayers go out to you and your family during this sad time. May God's grace, love, and presence be with all of you and your family in Wayne's memory. Rest in peace Wayne.
