Wayne Loyd Mets

August 25, 1926 ˜ October 22,

Wayne Loyd Mets born Aug. 25, 1926, passed peacefully on Friday morning Oct. 22, 2021, while staying at Mallard Landing Retirement Home. He was 95 years young. Resilient until the end, he loved to work on his home and garden and did so even up to this past summer. But even more he loved his only child Debbie and his beloved wife Vivian who sadly both preceded him in death.
Wayne started working at a young age and joined the Navy at 17 to help in the fight of World War II. He had married his sweetheart Vivian before his ship departed and enjoyed a wonderful 66-year marriage. He retired from International Paper after over 30 years of faithful employment and so was able to enjoy many annual vacations to Hawaii with Vivian as well as many years together at their summer home in Harrison, NE.
He very much missed his wife and daughter and I know he is smiling again to be reunited with them once more.
He is lovingly remembered and will be greatly missed.
