Wade was the youngest of six children. He grew up and attended schools in Moab. He loved to hunt and fish, and hike the desert and mountains searching for rocks, arrowheads, and dinosaur bone. As a true outdoorsman, he knew this country like the back of his hand. Wade worked from seismograph in Oregon to glazing in Washington, D.C. and many points in between.
He was a jack-of-all-trades and master of some. His family was very important to him. He was always available to help out. He was passionate about cooking to the point of rising at 3 a.m. to smoke a choice cut for those he loved. You could always count on Wade to make you laugh with his funny antics and silly faces.
There is no way that a few paragraphs can sum up how profoundly Wade touched each of our lives.
Wade is survived by his mother, Ginger; siblings Monica (Gary) Skowbo, Paul, Jr., Alaina (Russ) Johnson, Darla (George) Patterson and his twin Wanna (Chuck) Ekleberry; aunts, uncles, numerous nieces and nephews and cousins.
A graveside service was held Monday, Aug. 28, 2017 at Sunset Memorial Garden Cemetery.
