Obituary

Wayne L. Dryburgh, 74, of Brainerd, passed away peacefully at his home on April 25, 2019 surrounded by his family. Wayne was born on May 18, 1944 in Brainerd to Clyde and Edith (Kounkel) Dryburgh. He was welcomed home by his big brother, Curtis Dryburgh.
Wayne graduated from Brainerd High School, class of 1962, and went on to trade school in Staples where he got his Machinist degree for Tool and Die.
Wayne found the love of his life just down the road from his family home. He married Janet Wittwer on May 15, 1965.
Wayne and Jan started their family in Fridley, where their daughter Lisa was born. They soon found their way back to God’s Country and made their home in Staples, where they completed their family with the births of Lori and Steven. Wayne started working at 3M in 1968 and continued his work there until his retirement in 2001. They lived and raised their family in Staples where they were both active in softball, bowling, and the Sportsman’s Club, where they made lifelong friends. Near retirement they moved back to his childhood home on the lake and he literally lived out the remainder of his life on “Easy Street”.
Wayne not only enjoyed but loved beyond measure his time with family. Some of his greatest joys were the ability to spend time hunting, water skiing, and tubing, fishing, snowmobiling, motorcycling, playing cornhole, and washers and of course card games of all kinds, He especially loved being with his grandchildren and great grandchildren.
Wayne has touched many lives in his 74 years, his list of abilities was endless. He blessed many of us by sharing his knowledge and meticulous “machinist” perfections in getting things done just right. He has proven to us all throughout his life that if you work hard, stay strong, fight hard and love always, no matter what, you will get life done…Just Right.
Wayne is survived by his loving wife of 53 years, Jan; daughter, Lori Smith; son, Steven (Becky) Dryburgh; grandchildren, Robbie (Kori) Anderson, Becca (Chad) Lardy, Dalton Dryburgh, Brady (Kaitlin) Killian, Matthew Smith and Cody Dryburgh; great grandsons, Mason Lardy and Wyatt Anderson; nieces, Joni Dryburgh and Rita Silva.
Wayne is welcomed into Heaven by his parents, Clyde and Edith; brother, Curtis; daughter, Lisa Dryburgh Killian; mother and father in law, Glenn and Elsie Wittwer.
A memorial service celebrating Wayne’s life will be held on Friday, May 3, 2019 at 11AM at Trinity Lutheran Church. Visitation will be held on Thursday, May 2, 2019 from 4-7PM at Halvorson Taylor Life Event Center, and one hour prior to the service, Friday at the Church.

Saddened how quickly one family's life can be changed so instantly. I can't think of any words......just know that you are in our thoughts and prayers. May you find comfort in God’s promises “He will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” Revelation 21:4. Psalm 37:29 ‘The righteous will possess the earth, And they will live forever on it.’ Matthew 5:5 “Happy are the mild-tempered, since they will inherit the earth.” Our sincere condolences.
