Floyd Wayne Kreder, 75, of Saint Charles, Missouri, died on February 21, 2022.
Wayne was born on October 9, 1946, in Saint Charles, Missouri, and graduated from Saint Charles High School in 1964. He proudly served in the Missouri Air National Guard from 1965 to 1971.
Wayne met the love of his life, JoAnn Nadler, in 1963, and they were married at Saint Charles Borromeo Catholic Church on January 8, 1966. Wayne and JoAnn were happily married for 56 years and were parishioners of Saint Robert Bellarmine Catholic Church.
Wayne worked as a drywall taper for West County Drywall and Chuck E. Blackburn Drywall Inc. before retiring due to disability at the age of 52. Wayne absolutely loved watching JoAnn play steel guitar with several bands around Saint Louis and Branson, Missouri. He also enjoyed spending time with his family and friends, camping and travelling with JoAnn in their RV, fishing, hunting, playing pool, and feeding and talking to the deer that would visit their backyard.
Wayne is survived by his loving wife, JoAnn; their two children, Keith Kreder, and Brent (Terriann) Kreder; his grandchildren, Trenton (Andrea) Kreder, Taryn Kreder, Courtney Hemphill, McKenna (Danny) Kalz, Cole Kreder, Jessi Kreder, Chase Kreder, Kaylee Kreder; his great-grandchildren, Barrett Kalz and Brantley Kreder; his brother-in-law, Jerry Shirrell; niece, Wendy Bien; nephew, Jeremy (Dana) Shirrell; and extended family of great-nephews, great-nieces, cousins, and life-long friends.
Wayne was preceded in death by his parents, Floyd and Margaret Kreder; his father and mother-in-law, Vernon and Olivia Nadler; and sister-in-law, Judy Shirrell.
Wayne was dearly loved and will be greatly missed by all who knew him. To celebrate his life, there will be a visitation on Saturday, March 26, 2022, from 10:00am – 11:00am with a Funeral Mass starting at 11:00am at Saint Robert Bellarmine Catholic Church.
