Wade had a never-ending love for his family, spending all his spare time with them. Especially his first love, his mom. He spent a lot of time with her. The last week of her life he was there 24 hours a day tending to her. Wade was by her side for her last breath. We know that he is reunited with her & now by her side & they are looking down on all they love. Wade was one of the smartest, kindhearted men you would ever meet. He once ran into a burning building to save 3 dogs.  Wade graduated Limestone High School 1990 & attended Fort Kent. Wade loved spending time with Carolann whether doing something or nothing, a good cup of coffee, late night teatime with Haley, student teaching, tutoring, history, a good debate, cooking, golf, bowling, coaching basketball, soccer & refereeing & watching wrestling.
