Wayne Reed Rindlisbacher, 71, of Grantsville Utah, passed away at home on March 6th, 2018.

Wayne was born on August 31, 1946 in Logan, Utah to Reed and Norma Rindlisbacher. He was raised as a farm boy, hunter and avid fisherman in West Mountain, Utah. After graduating from Payson High School he served an LDS mission in the Canada Ontario Mission. Upon completion of his missionary service, he enlisted in the US Army Security Agency as an intelligence officer. He married the love of his life, Gaylene Haskell, on December 12, 1968 in the LDS Manti Temple. Shortly after their marriage, Wayne was assigned to military service at army installations in Germany where he and Gaylene spent three years. In October 1976, Wayne was honorably discharged from military service and began his career as a civil servant at Dugway Proving Grounds where he retired 32 years later as the Chief of Intelligence. Wayne graduated from Brigham Young University on August 26, 1982. Wayne loved his family and was often caught chuckling out of the blue over something one of his funny, little grandchildren had said. He was a wonderful husband, father and grandfather and an amazing leader. He leaves behind an example and legacy that will never be forgotten. He will truly be missed.

Wayne is preceded in death by his parents Reed and Norma Rindlisbacher, and his sister Larraine Meredith.

Wayne is survived by Gaylene Haskell Rindlisbacher; their children Al (Amy) Rindlisbacher, Nanalee (Shane) Jones, Tiffany (Michael) Odell, Corrie (Brett) Kidder; siblings Paul (Lona) Rindlisbacher, Lynn (Carol) Rindlisbacher, Colleen (LeEarl) Peck, Becky (Kelly) Morganson, and Uncle Jay (Maureen) Rindlisbacher; grandchildren Rayden Jones, Alyks Odell, Reed Rindlisbacher, Ben Odell, Lena Odell, Kairi Jones, Ella Rindlisbacher, William Kidder, Cooper Kidder, and Caitlyn Kidder.
