OLD TOWN AND SIOUX FALLS - Jesus wrapped His loving arms around Wayne Briggs Sr. on August 26, 2015 and carried him to his heavenly home. He is now free from the bondage of Parkinsons.
Wayne worked many years as a logger having his own business, and after retirement drove a chemical truck around the New England states during the summer months. He enjoyed driving truck and being outside.
Dear to his heart was the River of Life Bible Camp where he served as chair of the board for many years and could be found working on the cabins many weekends. Wayne loved the Lord and could be found sitting in his recliner reading the Bible.
Wayne is survived by his loving wife of 57 years, Grace Curtis Briggs, three children; Nancy Briggs York and her husband Joseph of Humboldt, SD, Graceann Briggs York of Lincoln, ME, and Wayne Briggs Jr and his wife Deandra of Old Town, Maine. He is survived by five grandchildren and five great grandchildren. He also leaves behind his loving sister Beverly Briggs Cole and special niece Judy Shorey Mott as well as many nieces and nephews.
There will be a memorial service in June of 2016 when his family can be together in Maine and celebrate his life with those who knew and loved Wayne.
