Wayne W. Shoup, 61, of Ferndale, Washington, passed away on February 5, 2019.
He was born in Roswell, New Mexico on November 25, 1957, a son of the late Clair and Joyce (Deeble) Shoup.
Growing up, Wayne’s father served in the Air Force, and some of his fondest childhood memories were made when they lived in Bermuda.
He was an avid outdoorsman, enjoying hunting, fishing, crabbing, catching snakes and baseball.
Wayne was a loving and positive man, finding the best in every situation. His enthusiasm for politics and his country was second to the love of his family, and the joy that his grandchildren Johnny and Grace brought him.
He is survived by his wife of 40 years, Lyndia, and their children, David, John and Jennifer; and a brother Glenn Shoup and niece and nephews, Clinton, Jessica, Jared and Trevor, along with his two grandchildren. His aunt, Jean D’Arconte-Deeble also survives as do several cousins.
A graveside commital service will be held at St. John’s Cemetery in Ringtown, on Saturday, October 12th at 11 AM. Relatives and friends are asked to meet at the cemetery, as Wayne will be laid to rest on the family plot immediately following the service.
The Stauffer-Breznik Funeral Home, Ringtown is assisting Wayne’s family during this time of need. More information and directions are available at www,ringtownfuneral.com
