Wayne Anthony Klick was born on January 17, 1959 in Pine Ridge, SD to Mother Elenita Veree (Prairie Chicken) Stroxtile and Father Leon Joseph Klick. Wayne made his final journey home on December 2, 2020 at his residence in Salt Lake City, UT.

The oldest of four siblings, he was the only boy with 3 sisters. Growing up, Wayne was a very astonishing being and in his lifetime he achieved many things. 

He traveled from California to Hong Kong, China, as a participant in martial arts (Kung Fu) competitions. He was the successful owner of an auto mechanic shop which he proudly ran for over 30 plus years. 

Wayne had an awesomely adventurous spirit. He lived life to the fullest and was always showing someone how they can have great fun with the great outdoors. Snow skiing, rafting, jet skiing, biking, motor crossing, four wheeling, hiking, and camping are just a few of the things he loved to do. 

He also loved going to concerts whenever he could. A lover of music in its essence, his last awesomely concert was the Rolling Stones in Denver, CO. 

Wayne always had a generous heart and would make sure you were taken care of. He was a son, brother, father, grandfather, and a friend. Wayne was truly one of a kind and he will be greatly missed. Love you.
