Earl Wayne Flom

Earl Wayne Flom, 87, of Fargo and formerly of Fairdale, ND, passed away peacefully on April 26, 2019, surrounded by the ones he laughed with, lived for and loved.

Wayne was born August 20, 1931, in Osnabrock Township. He attended Osnabrock Township School and graduated from Nekoma High School. Wayne also attended the University of Minnesota and then took over the farm his grandfather homesteaded, and his father farmed. Wayne served on many community boards and committees. After over 50 years of farming Wayne retired and “moved south” to Fargo. Wayne was a loving husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, brother and friend.

He was survived by his loving wife of 65 years, Idell (Myers) Flom; his children: Terrie Montgomery of Minneapolis, MN, Marion Flom of Ormond Beach, FL, Wayne Allen Flom of Davenport, ND, Annette Flom of Apple Valley, MN, and Edward (Jill) Flom of Davenport, ND; brothers Gerald (Kay) Flom of Grand Forks and Neil (Susan) Flom of Detroit Lakes, MN; sister Joyce (Roderick) Stave of Parker, CO; and the lights of his life- his 13 grandchildren and 17 great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his grandparents, parents Nels and Violet Flom; mother and father-in-law Phoebe and Kermit Myers, three nephews and four brothers-in-law.

Will sure miss Wayne always had a good time when we would get together. We did stop by to see Wayne & Idell last July on our way to Minnesota, he didn't know who we were but didn't matter still wanted to see him.

Wayne is a memory at a point in time years ago, he was always a gentleman and an uplifting individual.

So sorry to hear of Wayne's passing. Still remember visiting with you at Altru when I ran across you by accident when visiting someone else. That was a long time ago! Thinking of you.

Wayne was a friend of ours since we were teenagers. As a teenager, I would often roller-skate with Wayne and his sister, Joyce, at the Nekoma gymnasium. We extend our sincere sympathies to Idell and their children. Wayne was a classy person and a credit to his community in every respect. Wayne always took great pride in his family. He will be missed by all who knew him.

Our thoughts and prayers to Earl Wayne's loved ones. We don't know what we can say that won't be a repeat of what others have said. He was a great guy and nice farmer and will be sorely missed by many. REST IN PEACE EARL WAYNE.
