It is with great sadness that the family of Wayne Alan Whitten announces his passing on Monday, December 10, 2018, at the age of 69.  Wayne was born on July 13, 1949 in Lafayette, Indiana and moved to Apache Junction in 1960, where he resided until 2018.  He graduated from Apache Junction High School in 1968.  From there, Wayne began his career at Magma Copper Company and later retired in the heavy equipment sales industry.  He is the son of the late Katherine Crone and Robert Whitten.  Wayne is survived by his 3 daughters, Michelle White (Jason), Denise Whitten, and Dana Ashland (Jay); and 9 grandchildren, Chris, Heather, Cody, Brendon, Cassidy, Kenna, Chase, Chloe, and Skylar.

We know that he touched many people throughout his life with his sarcastic wit, his inability to deny someone a helping hand, and his talent to fix anything no matter what. His love for Mexican food (especially Elvira’s and Los Gringos Locos), the great outdoors, and working in his garage will be forever remembered.

Services will be held on Wednesday, December 19th at 2:30pm at San Tan Mountain View Funeral Home at 21809 S. Ellsworth Rd., Queen Creek, AZ 85142.
