Wayne Kelly Harbour, 90. Wayne was born Nov. 20, 1919, in Del Norte, Colo. to Jim and Ruth Harbour, passed away April 14, 2010, in Pueblo. As the 8th of 11 children, Wayne was raised on a Colorado potato farm; an experience he often shared with his family through the many stories and fond memories he held. He attended college in Dodge City, Kan. until he learned of the attack on Pearl Harbor, when he promptly enlisted in the U.S. Navy and proudly served our country through the end of both WWII and the Korean Conflict. Wayne had a full and wonderful life in both California and Colorado. He retired from the flooring installation business and took up other interests that he described as being 'easier on his knees.' After a life of bird-watching, Wayne had a keen eye and a sharp ear and could name anything that flies. An avid sports fan, he often spent time with a good basketball or football game and even took a shot at golf when he was well into his eighties. Wayne is survived by his wife, Marnie Toevs; his children, Sandy Sell and Susie (Don) Stalcup, both of Orange County, Calif.; step-sons, Dave (Heather), Doug (Lori) and Bruce (Kelly) Nesslage, Ted (Donna), Joel (Mary) and Kim (Renee) Berrian; and step-daughters, Cindy Jackson and Marnie (Mark) Iorio; nephews, Steve (Diane) Harbour and Tom (Millie) Meardon; six grandchildren, 13 great-grandchildren; and numerous personal friends. There will be no viewing. Cremation, Montgomery & Steward Crematorium. Wayne will be missed deeply by all who knew him.

  1. Life moves to fast for those moments shared and to slow for those moments missed. May you find peace in knowing that Love lives forever in our hearts, memories and souls. I know Grandma Inez is embracing him, she was so grateful for all he did for her, espicially during her last years. Darlene Stoneking(Elinor’s daughter), I don’t always catch the obituaries and so regret missing his funeral. Dad, Clarence also sends his regrets at not having read that section of the paper and miss sharing the final chapter with you, Monie and the families. I am grateful Bonnie Harbour called me this morning to let me know.

  2. An old warrior who served his country in two wars and did so with honor. He is now with old comrades. A good man…a good man gone.

  3. This is my Uncle Wayne for whom my youngest(Wayne Charles) brother was named. One of my earliest memories is of looking down on the top of our refrigerator because this huge, tall man had me on his shoulders. Although as an adult I didn’t knew him well, I never forgot about him and always loved as my Uncle Wayne. Out of 11 children he was the youngest boy and my dad, James Jay Harbour, was his older brother. I’m very pleased that he had a long ad happy life and will always be proud to call hin ‘Uncle”.
