A Public Celebration of Life will be held on Friday, September 24, 2021, from 6:00 to 9:00 P.M. at the Brownton Community Center in Brownton, Minnesota.
Wayne George Schuster was born on October 23, 1951, in Owatonna, Minnesota. He was the son of George and Ione (Schoaf) Schuster. Wayne was baptized as an infant and was later confirmed in his faith as a youth. He was a graduate from Ellendale High School and graduated from Winona State University with a Bachelor of Science in English Education and Speech.
On July 12, 1975, Wayne was united in marriage to Jane Ann Engrav at Rushford Lutheran Church in Rushford, Minnesota. This marriage was blessed with three children, Alison, Oliver and Jillian. Wayne and Jane resided in Brownton and later moved to Hutchinson, Minnesota. They shared 46 loving years of marriage.
Wayne was employed at Brownton High School, which later became McLeod West High School, for 34 years where he worked as an English Teacher and Athletic Director. He also coached a variety of sports over the years and directed high school plays.
Wayne enjoyed golfing, fishing, spoiling his grandchildren, and spending time with his dear family and close friends. He was a passionate man—often fiery about the things he cared deeply about and equally as quick to let go and forgive. Wayne will forever be loved for his generosity, kindness, thoughtfulness, storytelling, and joyous laugh.
Wayne passed away on Tuesday, September 14, 2021, at the Pali Momi Medical Center in Aiea, Hawaii, at the age of 69.
