A life-long resident of Dresslerville, Nev., he was born Nov. 22, 1937, to Cecil and Nancy Pitts Wade.

A cowboy and a laborer, he worked at various ranches in the Carson Valley area and was an independent wood cutter in his later years. He loved the Pine Nut Mountains and spent much of his time doing what he loved most, either picking pine nuts or cutting wood.

Among his survivors are his sisters, Marie Kizer and Shirley Wade and brother-in-law, Vernell Frank, all of Dresslerville; numerous nieces and nephews and many friends. He was preceded in death by his parents; brothers, Alburn Bob, Leighton Palmer and Delbert Simpson; and sister, Lorraine Luna.
