Wayne and his brothers worked any job available when they were growing up, from picking cotton to delivering newspapers and loading crop duster airplanes before school. After graduating from the University of California in 1958, Wayne went to work for Boeing where he worked in the design and testing of gas turbine engines. He remembers those early days where some spectacular engine failures occurred and he helped determine the failure causes and fixes. In 1961, he worked for FMC Corp., Ordnance Div. on a missile controlled launcher system. Later, one of his proudest achievements was working on the APOLLO Program where he was responsible for the structural analysis and vibration testing of the Apollo High Gain Antenna for a subcontractor to North American Aviation from 1965 through 1972. He moved to Albuquerque in 1972 to work for The BDM Corporation.

Kuhlmeyer, Ethel
Ethel Gossert Kuhlmeyer – Leadville Carbonate Chronicle – February 17, 1919 – Mrs. Myron R. Kuhlmeyer – With mingled sympathy and sorrow a number of old friends attended with relatives the funeral services held at 1:30 yesterday afternoon for the late Mrs. Ethel Gossert Kuhlmeyer, who died last Monday after a sickness of ten days. The services were private in nature as required by the board of health rulings, and on that account only a few of the family's many friends could attend. Flowers told of the sentiments of those not present, however, as well as those who were there. The services were held at the chapel of the Moynahan and O'Malia's Undertaking company, where the Rev. Leroy W. Ellis of the Baptist church officiated and gave a consoling and eulogistic address. Burial was in Evergreen cemetery. The pall bearers, who represented members of the Knights and Ladies of Security as well as the friends generally were John Crowell, Arthur Dalrymple, Dr. F. J. Verzani, George Fitzsimmons, W. C. Lewis and Harry Gilmore. Having lived virtually all of her life in Leadville and being identified with the activities of the Knights and Ladies of Security of which she was vice president, Mrs. Kuhlmeyer was widely known in Lake county, and her death was a deep shock to her many acquaintances, as well as to her immediate family and friends. She was born in Pueblo on December 23, 1889, and came to Leadville with her mother, Mrs. Mary Gossert, when she was 2 years old, her father having died before her birth. She and Mr. Kuhlmeyer, a son of a well known pioneer family, were married here on October 16, 1907, their marriage ceremony being performed by the Rev. Richardson of the Baptist church, pastor here at that time. Their married life together had been remarkably happy. Mrs. Kuhlmeyer was devoted to her home and family and made their comfort the sole aim of her existence. Her husband and three children are heartbroken by her lamentable death. After their marriage they made their home at the dwelling at Brooklyn Heights where they have resided continuously since. Mrs. Kuhlmeyer was a devout member of the Baptist church. In lodge affairs she was highly popular among her associates in the Knights and Ladies of Security, who showed their general esteem for her some months ago by electing her vice president. One of the beautiful floral tokens on her bier yesterday was a large emblem from this lodge. Mrs. Kuhlmeyer's last sickness lasted only ten days. Pneumonia developed at the first of the sickness. Thursday she was taken to the city's emergency hospital to provide constant care for her. She passed away there Monday last with the baby born that morning. The baby was buried in her arms yesterday. During her sickness she faced each day courageously and did not give up her confidence of recovering until a short time before her death, when she resigned herself to the end. Her husband, three children, mother and one sister, Mrs. J. W. Doyle, of this city, survive Mrs. Kuhlmeyer. The children are Myron Jr., aged 10; Marie, aged 8; and Ethel, aged 6. Marie and Ethel were born on the same date of January, January 4, two years apart, and their celebration of their birthdays last month was a happy event in the household. The following verses were written on Mrs. Kuhlmeyer's untimely death by Mrs. Joseph Kuhlmeyer and express what a host of friends feel: “Ethel has gone, and left us, to her home above, Where there is no pain and suffering and all is love. For how we'll miss her no word can tell, With heavy hearts we bade her a long farewell. In her casket she is sleeping; her form is white as snow, And in her arms, gently clinging, the little bud that ceased to grow. Husband, mother, sister, children, you are apparently alone, But God has promised sometime, you will follow to the great Unknown. Over the hill they brot her, to the evergreen below, Where they left her sleeping in her bed beneath the snow. Oh, how hard to return without her, our own one! But God's word was spoken and God's will be done.”
