Original voice behind Wedgwood View dies

December 21st, 2012 · 2 Comments

On Sunday, Dec. 16, the original voice behind Wedgwood View, Wayne Wurzer, died at age 50 after a 2½-year battle with cancer.

As one of the faces behind All That Dance, 8507 35th Ave. N.E., where his wife, Maygan, teaches dance to children of all ages, Wayne was known throughout the community.

He was also known throughout the journalism world after working at both The Seattle Times and the Seattle P-I as a reporter and editor, which is what led him to start Wedgwood View in early 2010.

Just a few short months later Wayne was diagnosed with cancer, and he eventually stopped reporting for Wedgwood View to focus on getting better.

Friends of Wayne have read about his good days and his bad days via the website Caring Bridge, and a memorial service is at 2 p.m. today at the Center for Spiritual Living, 5801 Sand Point Way N.E.
