Wayne Oliver Fosdal, age 81 passed away on Friday, Jan. 31, 2020, with his loving family by his side.
He was born on August 3, 1938, in Cambridge, Wisconsin, the son of Oliver and Olive (Otteson) Fosdal. On October 11, 1969, Wayne was united in marriage to Gloria Fosdal in Stoughton. Wayne worked for Uniroyal for 44 years until his retirement. He also was a proud farmer in Utica throughout his life.
In his spare time, he enjoyed being in the outdoors hunting, fishing, and visiting his cabin up north. He faithfully attended church, cherished the time spent with his beagle Joe, his family and most of all the time spent with his very special grandson, Jordan.
We cannot forget to mention his friends and all the time he would meet them at Nora’s in Deerfield for breakfast.
Wayne is survived by his daughter; Sandra Yates, three grandchildren; Jacob, Ali and Jordan, his brother; Ron Fosdal and his sister; Naomi Lynch. He is also survived by many nieces, nephews, other loving family and friends.
He was preceded in death by his parents, his wife Gloria Fosdal, daughter Cheryl Fosdal, brother Myron Fosdal and brother-in-law Michael Lynch.
Funeral services will be held at East Koshkonong Lutheran Church, 454 East Church St., Cambridge on Saturday, Feb. 8, 2020 at 1 p.m. with Reverend Brenda Lovick and Reverend Sara Robe concelebrating. A time to gather will be at the church on Saturday from 11 a.m. until the time of service. Graveside services will be held on Saturday at East Koshkonong Lutheran Cemetery following the luncheon.
The family would like to extend a special thank you to Agrace HospiceCare Inc., The Nazarath House, Stoughton Hospital, EMS and UW Hospital for all their love and compassion given to Wayne and our family through his final days.
