Wade Garett Woxland


Fri, Jan 24th, 2014
Posted in Rushford Obituaries

Wade Garett Woxland, 49, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by the love of his family December 28, 2013, following a valiant and extensive battle with cancer. An avid cyclist, Wade counted the fight for his life another endurance challenge and he embraced it with courage and perseverance to the very end.

Born June 13, 1964, in Millington, Tenn., Wade was the son of Rushford, Minn. residents Gary and Mary Woxland. Wade was an avid and life-long Vikings fan regardless of their win/loss record.

Upon graduating from Winona Senior High School in 1983, Wade immediately entered the United States Navy where he served for 20 years as an Aviation Machinist Mate (Aircrewman, Enlisted Aviation Warfare Specialist) until retirement from service in 2004.

Wade married Nicole R. Gitt nearly 18 years ago, a decision he called “among the best he ever made” in his life. The couple spent enough time residing in Nebraska to convince their three sons that they were official Husker fans, but they relocated to Denver in 2009.

Wade’s indomitable spirit and lasting legacy lives on in the lives of Nicole and their three children, Garett, Connor, and Jakob. All boys are dedicated students and competitive gymnasts who share Wade’s heartfelt compassion for others. Wade is also survived by his daughter, Jessica Woxland of Massena, N.Y.; his parents and four siblings; two sisters, Diana (Glenn) Faraone of Rushford, Minn., and Melanie (Heath) Olstad of Harmony, Minn.; and two brothers Ronald and Jody Woxland of Rushford. Wade is also survived by one niece, Melody Olstad of Madison, Wis., three nephews, Levi (Julia) Olstad of Harmony, Zachary Olstad of Winona and Kelley Faraone of Rushford; and many aunts, uncles and cousins.

A memorial service was held Friday, January 3, at Crosswalk Center in Cherry Hills Village, Colo.
