Wayne D. Ace, age 86 of rural Belleville, passed away on Wednesday, April 24, 2019, at his home. He was born on October 9, 1932 on a farm in the Town of Exeter, the son of Oral and Elizabeth (Freitag) Ace.
Wayne attended the East Dayton School and graduated from New Glarus High School. On February 20, 1954, he was united in marriage to Grace Leota Haynes until her passing on January 4, 2008. Later Wayne married Kay Flood on November 1, 2008. Kay passed away on September 5, 2016.
Wayne was a proud farmer, he loved to share stories of the “good old days” with those around him. He was a passionate bowler, who bowled in a league for 30 years along with being a longtime member of the Euchre league. Wayne never had children of his own, but he was blessed with wonderful neighbors and step-daughter who would help with food and groceries, haircuts, taxes, snowplowing, and spending time with Wayne chatting and sharing stories. Wayne was also an avid Brewers fan, he would check the box score and schedule each day in the paper. He would also check the obituary section each day to see if any local residents he knew had passed away.
