He was born February 12, 1936 in Wheaton, IL, the son of the late George E. & Irma (Rowe) Pepper.

He also operated his own shop for Small Engine Repair. On June 16, 1973 he married the former Barbara J. Graves at Cargill United Methodist Church in Janesville.
He was a part of a Fire Fighting Crew in his earlier years in South Dakota near the Black Hills. He served in the National Guard. Wayne enjoyed model railroads and attending shows and exhibits.
He is survived by his wife, Barbara; his 2 sons, David (Nancy) Pepper, and DuWayne (Cheryl) Pepper, both of Janesville; his 2 step-children, David M.
