Wayne Rider Klein

Wayne Rider Klein was born on March 21, 1919 in Oak Park, IL.

Wayne and his brothers were raised in Illinois and Florida. Wayne married the love of his life, Iona June Leggett in 1945. Wayne and Iona lived in Hinsdale, IL raising two daughters Pamela and Marsha, before moving to Sunland, CA in 1953.

At 40, Wayne lost his sight and adjusted to his blindness with great dignity. Wayne and Iona built their retirement home in Grants Pass, Oregon in 1989. They moved to Bothell, WA in 2000 to be closer to family. Wayne and Iona built a legacy of love with 64 years of unwavering devotion. The twilight of Wayne’s life was in the loving care of his daughter Marsha, enjoying his great grandchildren and occasionally tipping back a pint of Mac & Jacks.

Wayne peacefully passed on October 23, 2014 in Bothell and has reunited with those who preceded him – Wife Iona (Leggett) Klein, Father Alfred Klein, Mother Lucretia (Lord Rider) Klein, Brothers Louis, Francis & Harold, Son In-law Jack Boudreaux Sr. Wayne is survived by his daughters, Pamela Boudreaux of Lake View Terrace, CA and Marsha Barrow & Danny Galloway of Bothell, WA, along with 12 grandchildren & 12 great grandchildren.

Wayne and Iona will find their final resting place, together in Grants Pass, OR on March 17, 2015 – their 70th wedding anniversary.
