Owen Wade, 85, of Roanoke started his next journey September 7, 2019. Owen was born to the late Edgar and Esther Wade on January 13, 1934 in New York City. He moved to Indianapolis in his teens, graduated from Manual High School and attended Butler University. He started off in seminary school and made a career change in the early 60s to the insurance industry going on to become a Financial Planner.
Throughout his life, he was involved in the community and a member of the Waynedale Masonic Lodge, Fort Wayne Scottish Rite, Mizpah Shrine, ROJ Court 27, Roanoke American Legion, and a charter member of Time Corners Kiwanis Club. Through his involvement with Kiwanis, he was instrumental in starting the Homestead High School Key Club. He also served in the Naval Reserves from 1952-1960.
Owen was known to enjoy full-bodied red wine, an Old Fashioned, and, most importantly, good fellowship. Being a certified bibliophile, he had a book collection that would impress any librarian. Truly a lifelong learner, he continued to keep abreast of current events and foreign affairs, along with enjoying reading on religions and philosophy up until his passing. In his later years others often described him as the youngest-thinking-old-person I know. He was truly a class act and will be missed by many.
Owen is survived by his wife of 60 years, Ann Wade; son, Phil (Carol) Wade; daughter, Leslie Wade; brother, Rod Wade; grandchildren, Alex and Austin and 2 great grandchildren.
