Wade was united in marriage to Marlene Rham in 1986 and they established their home in Devils Lake where they raised their family through the years. For the past 10 years, Wade battled several health issues which forced him into retirement. Wade enjoyed the outdoors, hunting, fishing or just hopping into the car for a drive around the countryside or off on a family trip to see relatives and friends. He was definitely a “people person” who loved to visit and would strike up a conversation with friends, neighbors and strangers. In the early years he enjoyed playing cards and participated in league bowling. Wade was a man of deep faith and was a member of St. Olaf Lutheran Church. He was all about family and loved and adored his children and grandchildren, they were his world. And every chance he could, you would find Wade at one end of a fishing pole.
