Wayne Lewis Jameson passed away peacefully on Friday, August 5, 2016 surrounded by his loving family. He was born on June 6, 1935 to Clyde and Katherine (Funke) Jameson. Wayne grew up on a small farm in rural Adair County with several brothers and sisters. He was educated in the Greenfield School System and was a 1953 graduate of Greenfield High School.
He married Myrna Elaine Brooker in 1961 and four children were born from this union. In 1973 he was united in marriage to the late Connie Jo Glantz and two children were born from this union. Wayne and his family resided in various places in Iowa throughout his life, eventually settling down in Fontanelle.
He was employed by Feeders Service and Schildberg’s, ultimately starting his own construction business, Jameson Construction, which he successfully and happily operated until his retirement. He also helped manage various family restaurants with his wife, Connie. He officially retired in 1997 but continued to do small projects for his friends and family.
Wayne loved woodworking. He enjoyed making shelves and furniture and his family would often be the recipients of his exceptional masterpieces. He also found happiness in watching football and wrestling. Wayne would often attend a local football game or wrestling match, especially if one of his grandchildren were competing. He would ask you to pull up a chair to watch a good John Wayne movie or Western. He also enjoyed gardening and would drop everything to spend time with his grandchildren and great grandchildren. He was a kind and caring man, devoted husband, father, and grandfather, always thinking of others first. To know him was to love him.
He is survived by his children, Gale Siefkas of Greenfield, JoAnn Jameson of Willow Springs, MO, Ronnie Jameson of Greenfield, Renee Parrott of Harlan, and Dianna Goetz (Jeremiah Martin) of Fontanelle; 19 grandchildren, 20 great grandchildren; 2 sisters and 1 brother, Eileen Armstrong of Greenfield, Darrell Jameson (Alice) of Greenfield, Bonnie Stalder (Jim) of Greenfield; other relatives and friends.
Wayne joins his wife, Connie Jameson; his daughter, Gerrye Horner; his great grandson, Nathan Hutt; and his brothers Ron, Dick, Marion, Keith, and Bob Jameson.
