Wayne Densmore

August 18th, 1953October 26th, 2018

Wayne Densmore, aged 65, passed away at home with his wife and son at his side on October 26, 2018 after valiantly fighting brain cancer for 26 months. Wayne was born in Peekskill, New York on August 18, 1953 to Walter and Lucille (nee Muller) Densmore. In 1983 he came to Colorado for a job assignment with AT&T from New Jersey and had lived here ever since. Wayne joined a local square dancing company and this was where he met his wife Susan. They were an amazing match; on one of their first dates Susan said she wanted finger food so Wayne- without batting an eye- asked the waiter to please remove all the silverware. He soon joined the square dancing company’s performance team. Wayne also enjoyed skiing, bridge tournaments, hiking, and camping. Wayne joined a local volleyball group and a rock climbing organization. He and Susan could frequently be found at the rock climbing gym, climbing in Eldo Canyon, or at a CU women’s volleyball game. One of his most recent hobbies was craft beer tasting, which quickly lead to brewing his own beer. Wayne was an affectionate and compassionate man and father. He was always encouraging his family when they would try new ventures and was a pillar of strength for them as well. The many communities that he participated in respected him due to his warmth, generosity, and intelligence. To sum up the man that Wayne was in such a short space is an impossible task. His practical jokes, the small ways he would show his love, and the thousands of little things that made Wayne Wayne will be remembered with smiles by his family and friends. Wayne is survived by his wife of 23 years Susan Scheffel, children Amanda Younessian & Michael Lapp, Lisa Younessian, and Andrew Densmore & Nataki Johnson, grandson Jason Lapp, siblings Linda Hall, David Densmore, and Brian Densmore, and several cousins, nieces, and nephews. There will be no services after his cremation. Wayne’s ashes will be scattered at a later time. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the National Brain Tumor Society.


No service are planned at this time.








I was one of Wayne's duplicated bridge partners for many years and was saddened to hear of his passing. Condolences to his family. He was a great guy and will be missed!
My deepest condolences to the family, may you find comfort in prayer and the beautiful words of Isaiah 25:8 where God promises us that He will soon eliminate all death and suffering.
