Memories Timeline


  1. I love you. You were a very great uncle. I know it has been a few years but now uncle rob is with you up there in heaven, and grandpa. I love you all, all of you, even the ones that i havent met like Rick. I love you and miss you!

  2. We hope you find comfort in your hour of need. I remember Wayne from grade school and high school. He was always quiet but always had a smile on his face.

  3. My deepest sympathies to the entire Margeson family. Wayne and I go back nearly forty years and I have only the fondest memories of our youth. Wayne was always a good son, brother, and friend who loved and respected his parents, siblings, and those of us lucky enough to call him friend. My mother, who was particularly fond of Wayne, referred to him as “My Little Margie” and she and my dad send their deepest regrets. To his lovely wife and family, I greive for your loss and pray for your comfort. I loved Wayne Margeson–his life and now his death are more significant to this “old friend” than I realized.

  4. With all my love. I will always keep you close to my heart. I can only look back at the times I have spent with you and smile. Take care.

  5. I loved and respected Wayne with all my heart. He was very special to me. I will always love him and never let his memory die. He was like a father to me after my father, Richard Margeson, passed away. Wayne would never turn anyone away and I never knew anyone who loved life as much as he did. Everyone who met Wayne loved him. Wayne was a very special person who will be deeply missed but never forgotten.

  6. Greg and I want to express our heartfelt sorrow, and offer our prayers for each of you in this very difficult time. Greg knew Wayne from West HS, I knew him from Anza on … We are truly sad to know that Wayne\’s passing will leave such a void in all of our lives … but, we pray that his memory will serve to remind us that there was once “one” who gave so much warmth and kindness to this world … and we are better people for having known him! We will miss you Wayne~ For all of you, his dear family, Greg and I offer this: “May the road rise up to meet you, may the wind be at your back, may the sun follow your every day, and may GOD hold each of you in his hand.” An Irish Prayer~


  8. To my friend Wayne o. you are my friend ,my friend to be. You brought me laughter so quickly. The things we did I always remember. The laughter in your voice brings us joy for ever. I miss you my dear friend ,we were close together ,we will all miss you when we come together . i prayed for you and your families beliefs ,when you see your brother give him a hug forMe. God Bless Your friend, Mike Wright

  9. My husband, Wayne, was a beautiful and amazing man. He wanted to always be remembered as a happy man and in the end he was. He was compassionate, funny, sensitive and fun. We spent almost every hour together and we never tired of it. Wayne was my husband, my confidante, my travelling partner, raquetball, running and dancing partner. We laughed often and talked endlessly. We never stopped being grateful for the diversity and richness of our lives and were forever greatful that we found each other. Wayne valued family, friends and spiritual growth above all. He will always be in my heart and soul and the only thing that can ease the pain of losing him, is the knowledge that I had the fortune to know and love such a great person.

  10. To the family of Wayne. I attended Anza and West High with Wayne, I remember him as a quite person but very kind and gentle spirit and always would lend an ear when needed. Our 30 year reunion gave us the chance to reminisce the good old days and the oldies we were so fond of. Even though we grew older Wayne still remained that great person I remembered all those years. How Blessed we were to meet once again and share and laugh together on Oct of 1999. The greatest thing he shared with me that evening was how lucky he was to have Carol in his life. He will be greatly missed. God Bless you all and our deepest deepest sympathy. Sue & Alan Marshall

  11. I\’m so sorry to hear of Wayne\’s accident. I had known him since attending Anza school, & it was good to see him at our recent WHS class Of 69 reunion, having a great time renewing friendships with so many he knew there. He was a very nice person to know & won\’t be forgotton. My sympathies to all his family & friends mourning his sudden passing away.
