Wayne was fun to be around, always smiling, laughing, joking and a very uplifting guy. He was a true friend, someone you could always rely on, love you like a Brother. Until we meet again. God Bless Mae, Jessica, and the entire Unruh family.

Mei and Jessica, I am so sorry for the loss of Wayne so young. His fun loving heart made him such a joy to be around. He loved to make people laugh. I spent many a family gatherings being teased by him! I am blessed that he was my cousin. Your family is in my hearts and prayers.

I knew Wayne from tailgating, and he was a great member of Van Club. You could always count on Wayne to be there for the earliest of tailgates, happy to assist with setting up the tents, heaters, and tables, no matter warm, subzero or raining. Even when he wasn't feeling his best this year, he still came and did what he could. There will be a void this fall in the tailgate lot. We'll remember Wayne fondly. "The Strength of the Herd is the Bison, and Strength of the Bison is the Herd. May you have peace, my Friend. JP

Mei and Jessica, I am sorry for your loss. I graduated with Wayne at Century High. At Century High Schools 20th reunion I made amends to Wayne for something I did back in our high school days. I will never forget what happened on the Saturday of our reunion at Sertoma Park. Wayne made a point of introducing his wife Mei and his young daughter who must be Jessica to me. I felt very privileged being introduced to you and Jessica and was amazed of Wayne's humility. God Bless

I had the pleasure of knowing Wayne over the past couple of years through Bison tailgating. Always the first one to greet you with a smile and a handshake, he became one of the four horsemen (the first four who set up the tailgate). Wayne was like the mailman of our tailgate group..."Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of early morning stays this gentleman from the swift completion of his appointed rounds" (adapted from the US Postal Service unofficial creed). In Wayne's case, his appointed rounds were the sharing of laughs and memories when he was around the people he cared about, and I hope he was able to realize just how much those people appreciated his presence and how much they cared about him. It is with a heavy heart that I say that I will miss Wayne greeting us with a smile and a skip in his step as we pull up to tailgating to spend a day of sharing libations, memories, and our love for Bison football. My condolences to all of his family and friends who will share this void everyday. May you rest in peace Wayne.

I belonged to Lions for many years with Wayne. I replaced him as the guiding Lion of the SMCHS Leos club. Wayne was a great Lion and an even better person. My sympathies to his family, especially to his uncle Dewey Unruh.

I only knew Wayne for a short time but in that short time I found a very good person. I know Wayne will be missed by many. My deepest sympathy to his family.

I had the pleasure of meeting Wayne, numerous times, in the parking lot before Bison games. As a member of the Van Club, he was there with a smile and handshake every time I pulled in from a couple hour journey west. He would also greet every member my family on game days. We would talk, laugh, and hear stories of our lives. He was so proud of how he created his mechanical bison. (My daughter got to sit on the "new" attraction.) Wayne was a positive person who will be deeply missed. The Van Club was fortunate to have a member like Wayne. God Bless to all of you.

I remember Wayne fondly from the time I attended Century High School with him. Although I was not able to attend any Bison games after graduating from NDSU in 1987, as I live in Texas, I have been fortunate to be able to go to 5 of the past 6 FCS championship games in Frisco, Texas. I only wish I had been able to keep with him through the years. Had I known he was such a huge Bison booster, we might have been able to reconnect at some point the last several years. My deepest condolences to his family.

My heart breaks for your family. Wayne was a treasure in so many ways and will be missed by everyone who knew him. I for one, have so many wonderful memories of the fun times spent with Wayne growing up. And enjoyed visiting with him throughout the years. RIP my dear friend. Julie

Mei and Jessica, our hearts were extremely saddened to learn of Wayne's passing. We always enjoyed visiting with Wayne. I would run into him quite often when he was up at the Capitol for the elevators. He would give me that impish smile and say I wouldn't take this car today, Susan. Of course, he could talk about his Mei and Jessica nearly nonstop. He loved the two of you so very much. We will hold the two of you close in our thoughts and prayers today and tomorrow as you recall and celebrate the life of your husband and father. May a legion of the Lord's angels gather you close and be by your side in the coming days and weeks. Our deepest sympathy to you and yours, Doug and Susan

I am saddened to hear that Wayne is no longer with us. I must admit, I have known him for a long time. I have ridden in his Mustang, “Weiner Toyota 4x4”, and wheelied over backwards on his Kawasaki trials bike the day he bought it… Wayne was mostly “happy, go lucky” back then, and was a good person. After the twenty-plus years we went our separate ways to live our lives, I would occasionally run into Wayne in downtown Bismarck. We would discuss our current lives, and Wayne would talk about his wife and daughter… Unfortunately, due to just coming off the flu, I will not be able to attend the celebration today of having Wayne involved in our lives—my sincerest condolences to his family and all those other friends. Thanks, Wayne…

Dear Mei, and Jessica. I want to give you and you’re family my deepest sympathy and condolences. I know words may not help but I want you to know we are praying for you! May the Holy Spirit of Jesus Christ bring you strength, comfort and peace during this time of such grief. We will all miss him so very much but please know that if you need anything or help with anything please let me know. Wayne and I tried to called each other on March 4 since our birthdays are on the same date. I was so blessed to know Wayne for 44 years. Working at the old A&B pizza on 13th. street, cruising main and hanging out at his house watching movies. Please keep the awesome memories close to you’re heart and we will all be able to celebrate with him again soon. I remember reading in a sympathy card that I received from someone not too long ago that was written in it that, life does not end, its only changed. I can only imagine the celebration he is having now with his mom and dad in heaven and that he will be waiting with his awesome smile and such joy when you and Jessica join with him his folks the rest of the family and friends in you’re heavenly home! Until then may God bless you and bring you his strength, comfort, and peace! Barry, Marilyn, and Sean Schneider.

Mei and Jessica, So SORRY to hear of Wayne's passing. You have my deepest sympathy and condolences. My family and I will be keeping you in our prayers. Praying God will bring you comfort, peace, rest, and strength. I was blessed to meet Wayne when I worked for the FAA, as he did elevator inspections at different facilities. Wayne and I would visit regulary on the phone encouraging each other through the week and try and grab lunch when he was out in western part of ND. He was a terrific friend and will be truly missed. GOD Bless, Dwight Dvirnak, Watford City, ND

My deepest sympathies. "Weiner" and I were great friends, both working at the Blazer in Breckenridge back when he was going to Science. We had some adventures, whether driving his Toyota with the 33's or sneaking over to Fergus to buy Stompers, to hangin at the lake in the summer. RIP bud
