Wayne Franklin Dietzman was born March 3, 1945 in Portland, Oregon, the son of the late Delmar Dietzman and Viola (Butler) Dietzman. He was raised and received his education in the Hillsboro community, graduating with the Hillsboro Union High School Class of 1963, where he played on the varsity football team for four years as tackle position. Upon his graduation he attended Portland State University, receiving a Bachelor Arts degree in accounting.
He was united in marriage to Jean A. Hardebeck on August 15, 1970 in the First Christian Church in Forest Grove. They celebrated their 48th Wedding Anniversary this past week. Following their marriage they resided in the Forest Grove community, until 1984, when they moved to the Gaston community, where they have resided since. He took great care of his family. No one ever had to worry about anything; he took care of it all, from bills to grocery shopping.
Wayne had been doing taxes since the late 70's. He bought a franchise in 1982. He later opened his own independent company, Wayne's Tax Service, which he co-owned and operated with his wife, Jean, in Hillsboro from 2004 to the present time. He was creative, inventive, always kind to people, and more than willing to help others. He cared deeply about his community and he loved to joke and tease in fun ways to bring a smile to someone's face.
He was a member of the (OATC), Oregon Association of Tax Consultants.
Among his other special interests, he enjoyed camping and traveling. He and his family made many annual trips to the west coast. He also loved his sports, especially Blazers games—the only thing he would leave work on time for. Wayne loved working in his tax service practice and serving his clients for many years.
Wayne was preceded in death by his parents, Delmar and Viola Dietzman.
Survivors include his wife, Jean Dietzman, of the family home in Gaston, Oregon and his daughter, Samantha Dietzman, of Forest Grove, Oregon.
The family suggests that remembrances may be contributions to the National Kidney Foundation—Oregon/Washington/Alaska, 465 N.E. 181st Ave., Ste. 257, Portland, OR 97230, in his memory.
