Wayne M. Cheslock, 75, of Seymour, passed away at home surrounded by his family on Sunday, October 15, 2023. Born on August 19, 1948 the second son to Roman and Arline Cheslock in Milwaukee, and grew up on Chicken Alley in Seymour.
In 1967, Wayne joined the Army and served our country overseas. He was honorably discharged from the Army in 1973. He belonged to the Vietnam helicopter crew members association and the American Legion Post #106 in Seymour. He could always be found at the Legion stand during the Outagamie County Fair.
Following his military service, he worked for Procter and Gamble, retiring after 30 years to the day. Retirement left him with too much time on his hands, and too much ambition, so he delivered fire trucks for Pierce Manufacturing, traveling all over the United States. Wayne loved driving and seemed to know every highway in the country. He loved riding his Harley and went on many rides both locally and out of state. He enjoyed watching drag racing and spent many years attending Doc's Harley-Davidson drags and enjoyed trips to Brainerd International Raceway with his family.
His military career and work accomplishments were small in comparison to what was most important. Wayne loved his family and always made them a priority. He helped care for his parents and siblings. He always made sure they had what they needed and never missed a visit. He always will be his grandchildren's biggest fan. His family is his greatest achievement and the legacy he is most proud of.
Wayne is now reunited with his parents, Ray and Arline; brothers: Dennis, Randy, and Mike; niece, Pauline; and in-laws: Ron Vanden Bosch and Barb (Bill) Mischler.
He leaves behind his wife, Lynn; children: Scott (Tennille) Cheslock, Michelle (Brent) Wenninger, Renee (Steve) Rawley, and Amanda Cheslock; grandchildren: Trevor, Dayton (Nick), Reese, Colten, Jaelyn, Vivian, Alese, Brielle, and Adrianna; great-grandchildren: Briar and Blake. He is further survived by his sister, Linda (Tim) Diemel; sister-in-law, Urai Cheslock; nieces, nephews, other relatives, and friends.
Visitation will be held on Thursday, October 19, 2023 from 3:00 - 6:00 p.m. at Muehl-Boettcher Funeral Home in Seymour. Memorial service will begin at 6:00 p.m. with Deacon Rich Matuszak officiating. American Legion Post #106 will perform full military honors.

In lieu of flowers memorial gifts are appreciated. The family plans to memorialize Wayne at Highground Veterans Memorial Park in Neillsville with a legacy stone. Wayne visited this park every year to pay his respects to all of those who fought, and lost their lives, for our freedom.
Don't worry, Dad, everything's fine.
