Wayne LaVerne Landon was born on June 16, 1937 in Rockport, Missouri to Harry and Opal (Lindstrom) Landen. He grew up in Rockport where he graduated from High School in 1955. Wayne went on to graduate from Tarkio College in 1959 with a BA degree and continued courses at UNO toward his MBA.

Wayne worked many years with Mutual of Omaha before retiring in 1987as a corporate executive. He worked at the Nebraska College of Business, Automated Forms and First National Bank in Omaha before retiring again in 2001. Not one to be idle, Wayne filled his time working in his church as a Deacon and visiting nursing homes, providing Bible study groups. He enjoyed boating, fishing and camping. Wayne had a love for music and played guitar in a local band. He was active in the Boy Scouts and the Jaycees. Wayne was a caring, devoted and inspiring man who could always see the good in life. He was passionate about his Huskers and his outreach ministry. Wayne could often be heard asking “Is my part straight?’
