HELPER - Our longtime friend, Wayne Dimick, died Nov. 28, 2008.
Born Jan. 20, 1944 in Price and later married the love of his life, Rosalie.
Wayne was a pillar of the community and he touched many lives as a firefighter and EMT for 32 years.
He was available for anyone in need and always just a phone call away. He was a caring and gentle soul to all he came in contact with.
Wayne served as a judge and treated everyone with respect and dignity.
He retired from D&RGW Railroad. He worked as a custodian and a beloved bus driver.
He had the most infectious laugh and, when he laughed, he laughed from his toes. Wayne's laughter could lift your worst mood.
He overcame many adversities, but was a fighter who rose to the top like cream. Life was not always a bed of roses for him, but his life seemed to flourish like a well kept garden.
When you see an EMT, fireman, or hear a siren, think of Wayne as he will be with them in spirit.
We love you and will carry you in our hearts. We'll keep your light shining.
Survived by wife, Rosalie; son, David; daughter, Jody (Kelly) Young; grandchildren and joy of his life, Detter, Mariah, Brandi, Skye, Tazmin and Eric, "Our Little Fireman;" and brothers, Kay and Kenny. He was preceded in death by his mother and father.
Funeral service for Wayne will be held Wednesday, Dec. 3, 11 a.m., Mitchell Funeral Home, where friends are welcome daily. Family will be at Mitchell's Tuesday evening from 6 to 8 p.m. and Wednesday one hour prior to service. Interment, Mountain View Cemetery, Helper.
