Wayne Allan Block was born on January 15, 1932 to Erwin and Martha (nee Bast) Block in Watertown. He was baptized, confirmed and was a lifelong member of St. Johnís Lutheran Church in Watertown. In his younger years, Wayne had many hobbies including: roller skating, ice skating, long bike rides, raising pigeons. Wayne was a 1951 graduate of Watertown High School, and worked at Koser Bakery until called for service in the United States Army in October, 1952. Wayne became a member of the 65th infantry regiment, 3rd division and was stationed at the 38th parallel in Korea. He obtained the rank of corporal and received the combat infantry badge.
After his discharge, he returned to Watertown and began working for Badger Music Sales and Equipment as an electronic service technician, where he remained until his retirement. On May 31, 1959, he married the love of his life, Marva Zwieg at St. Paulís Parsonage. After their marriage, Wayne and Marva were blessed with their only daughter, Belva. They enjoyed watching all of the activities their grandchildren participated in. Together they took many trips across the country, but their favorite place was Northern Wisconsin, where they went almost every summer. He enjoyed polka music, Pine Wood Derby with his grandchildren, and fishing.
