Wayne Mark Yarnall, age 62, of Middletown and Dewey Beach, DE, passed away on Tuesday, August 31, 2021.

Born in Wilmington, DE on October 28, 1958, he was a son of Christine (Kwiatkowski) Yarnall and the late William Malcom Yarnall. Wayne graduated from Delcastle High School.

Wayne will always be remembered as a loving husband, son, father, grandfather, and a dear friend to many.

In addition to his father, Wayne was preceded in death by his loving wife of 35 years, Diana “Lynn” (Smith) Yarnall and his daughter Kylie Yarnall. He is survived by his mother, Christine Yarnall; his daughters, Brooke Yarnall (Stephen Berkey), and Amanda Kerr (Kristopher); his 6 grandchildren, Payton, Avery, Harlee, Beau, Dilynn, and one due in October 2021; and his service dog, Odin.
