Wayne Greene

Wayne A. Greene Jr., beloved husband, father, uncle, grandfather and great-grandfather, went to live with our Lord on Sunday, January 20, 2013.

Visitation will be held on Wednesday, January 23, from 5-7 p.m. at Iles Funeral Homes-Westover Chapel. Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. on Thursday, January 24 at First Christian Church, 2500 University in Des Moines, with burial following at Glendale Cemetery.

Wayne was born in Kearney, NE and moved to Des Moines to attend Drake University, where he earned his Bachelor’s degree. He was a long time member of First Christian Church of Des Moines, Iowa, where he sang in the choir and spent many hours volunteering.

Wayne worked at WHO Broadcasting for 30 years, starting as an intern while he was at Drake University, and holding such positions as reporter, photographer and editor. Music was one of his joys, as was humor, and he was always telling jokes and puns that kept us all laughing.

He will be missed by his loving wife of nearly 50 years, Darlene; daughters, Malinda Mangano and Karen (John) Rotramel; grandchildren, Javier Sanchez, Dylan Mangano and Elijah Rotramel; and great-grandchild, Liliana Sanchez.

Memorial contributions may be made to First Christian Church. Online condolences may be sent to
