Wayne A. Brostrom

Eden Prairie, MN - Wayne A. Brostrom, 63, of Eden Prairie, MN passed peacefully from this life on Friday Dec 8, 2017 in Edina, MN surrounded by loved ones after a long hard fought battle with Parkinson's disease and diabetes. Wayne was born June 17, 1954 to William and Rose Brostrom. The family moved from Homewood, IL to Wisconsin Rapids in 1969 where Wayne graduated from Lincoln High School in 1972. He went on to earn a degree in Finance from the University of Wisconsin, Eau Claire. Following college, Wayne took a position with IDS as a Financial Services Advisor where he rapidly rose through the management ranks, enjoying a successful career from 1976 until 2002 when he took early retirement to focus on his health. Wayne was an accomplished fisherman and guide who taught countless children and adults his secret technique for landing trophy fish in the lakes and streams of WI and MN. Late in life Wayne took up water color painting and could often be seen in the Wayzata area painting and chatting with the locals about his art work. Wayne's true legacy however are his children Chloe and Bjorn Brostrom. They inspired him to keep up "The Good Fight" and were far and away what he cherished most deeply in this world. Wayne was preceded in death by his father and best friend, William Brostrom. He is survived by his children, Chloe and Bjorn Brostrom, his mother Rose Brostrom, his step mother Kathy Brostrom his ex-wife and close friend of 25 years Katy Brostrom and his siblings Donna Mummery, Herb Brostrom, Bill Mengel and Fawn Nicholson. Wayne was a beloved uncle to his nieces and nephews. His humor, kindness and zest for life were enjoyed by everyone he touched and he kept that quick wit to the very end. He was passionate about life and set the example, that one can never give up. A memorial service and celebration of Wayne's life will be held at 3 PM on Saturday, Dec 16 at Green Acres Event Center, 14150 Pioneer Trail, Eden Prairie, MN 55347, with visitation starting at 2 PM. In lieu of flowers the family would prefer a donation to one of the following: JDRF Diabetes Foundation, or Little Memorial Hospice of Edina, MN.
