Waylon Menssen
October 8, 2000 - March 8, 2008

Waylon Leslie Menssen was born October 8, 2000 in Windom, MN to Maina Simich and Jonathan Menssen. Waylon attended first grade at Winfair Elementary School in Windom.

Waylon enjoyed being with his dad working on small engines and riding in the road grader when his dad was grading or plowing the roads. He also enjoyed riding in the 18 wheeler hauling livestock with his dad, camping, fishing or just riding in the boat. Waylon road his first horse when he was one year old. He road motorcycle with his dad at the age of 3 and didn't want to get off. He would go with his dad and work on the 18 wheeler handing wrenches or a grease rag to him. One time when visiting Grandma Helen, he thought her toilet needed fixing and took off the toilet seat. Waylon liked to play cars, trucks, and dozers. He liked riding his bike, playing on the computer or video games. He also played with doors-opening and closing them. Waylon was a loving, smiling, and outgoing boy. He was our son. We'll always love him, cherish his memories and keep him close to our hearts.

Waylon is survived by his parents, Maina Simich of Windom and Jonathan Menssen of Jeffers; four sisters, Shonte Williams of St. Paul, MN, Mary Williams of St. Paul, MN, Destiny Simich of Rochester, MN, Victoria Stainbrook of Lafayette, LA; grandparents, Sharon Larson of Windom, MN, Kenneth Menssen of Fort Collins, CO; great-grandmother, Helen Menssen of Sherburn, MN; four aunts, Mickie Menssen, Tiffney Larson, Alexis Simich, Felicia Simich; one uncle, James Menssen; and many cousins.

Waylon is preceded in death by his grandparents, Walter Menssen, Dick Sonnabend, Leslie and Helka Gunder, and Hope Simich.

Blessed be the memory of Waylon Leslie Menssen.
