Wayne Koble was born on May 6, 1955 in Hammond, Indiana. A longtime resident of the Whiting-Robertsdale Community, he was a graduate of George Rogers Clark High School, Class of 1975. He was a former employee of the American Maize Products Co., (Amaizo, Cargill) and the Empress (Horseshoe) Casino. He was known for his love of Engles and Char. Wayne was always a happy person and had a great sense of humor. He loved to talk to people and make people laugh, he never met a stranger. He survived a debilitating stroke 22 years ago, that took away his story telling ability. He remained happy and smiling and tried his best to tell stories. He will be sadly missed by all who knew and loved him. In lieu of flowers, memorials to the family would be appreciated
