I met my dad when I was about 7. I was told my mom's husband at the time (his name was Frank) was my dad. This man was very mean. I remember him lifting me off the ground by my ear while spanking me on the way to my room--just one example of his parenting, lol. My sister Geri and I were outside playing when a stranger and his wife drove up. After a short conversation I got in the car with them. Geri did the right thing and wouldn't get in a stranger's car. To me, if this person claimed to be my dad at least I might be able to get away from Frank. A funny thing tho, while i was usually scared and unhappy at home I would have dreams about a nice man named Wayne. Geri and I left that night to live with Dad and Jenny. I was very happy during the time I lived with Dad. He was always kind, he was funny, and a good role model. Being with him taught me what a good father does. I think I'm a good dad and I know it's due to the time I spent with him.

Wayne Mahan has been my Dad since I was 6yrs. Old. My favorite memories are him teaching me to square dance, sitting outdoors listening to him play his mandolin or pick the guitar and sing. The trips to Fun Valley Colorado and Mesa Verde National Park, camping and fishing. I loved seeing him with Warren and Hershel Geeo with the exchange of gag gifts and jokes. The laughter was contagious. Hershel gave my Dad over 50 years of his happiest memories. I am lucky God gave me such a wonderful Dad. His love of life, music and laughter will be with me forever. I Love you Dad

My Uncle Wayne was a great and funny man. When I was 8 years old and playing little league baseball he came to Artesia to visit our family, (his older brothers family, my dad Arval, my mom Minnie, Steve, Mark, Russ and me) He had brought an 8mm movie camera which we had never seen before and made movies of one of my baseball games. I never saw these movies until I graduated from High School and he sent me a copy as a graduation gift. Best gift I have ever received and will never forget him. He also had his pilot's license at this time too and would call us on the phone and tell us to go outside and look up at the clouds and he would fly the plane right over our house. Funny stuff. Wish I could have spent more time with him and will certainly miss him. My condolences to the Mahan family

Wayne was a fabulous dad, granddad, and great granddad. Had a wonderful since a humor and didn't have a mean bone in his body. Never heard him raise his voice in anger, didn't curse, and treated everyone like family. He loved to kid, make gag gifts with his brother in-law Herschel and his father in-law. I could not have asked for a better father, role model and I will miss him dearly.
