Wayne Michael Fisk died on April 6th, in Newberg, OR, after a long battle with dementia. He was 73. One of seven children born to Milford and Kathryn Fisk, Wayne grew up in Seattle, WA and graduated from the University of Puget Sound. A dedicated teacher and mentor, Wayne taught social studies and coached both football and track and field, first at Newport High School (Newport, OR), then at Jefferson High School (Jefferson, OR). His lessons went beyond the classroom when he modeled social responsibility by serving for many years on the Albany City Council, the Linn County Fair Board, and the Oregon State House of Representatives (District 36). Wayne also served his community, and shared his love of sports and sportsmanship, by refereeing countless local high school football and basketball games. An avid reader, traveler, and nature-lover, Wayne made friends everywhere he went and could engage almost anyone in smiles and amiable conversation.

Wayne is survived by his wife of 52 years, Judy (Rowley) Fisk; his four children, Karen (Fisk) Murphy, Dianna Fisk, Michael Fisk and John Fisk; and his seven grandchildren, Joseph, Andrew, Claire, Matthew, Sean, Bradley and Calder. We already miss talking sports, politics, video games and science fiction with our beloved husband, father and grandfather.

Funeral Mass will be held on April 17, 2017 at 11AM at St. Mary's Catholic Church in Albany, Oregon. Donations in lieu of flowers may be made in his memory to the Democratic Party or Oregon Public Broadcasting.
