He served during the Korean War from 1952 to 1954, earning the Purple Heart. After returning home from Korea, he married Alice A. Huxford on March 9, 1954 at St. Pauls Lutheran Church in Waverly. He was honorably discharged from the Marine Corps in 1955. The Browns made their home in Waverly, where Wayne was hired on to the Waverly Police Department in 1965. Wayne was a respected and beloved officer who was known for his sense of humor and practical jokes. He retired from the police department as Asst. Chief of Police in 1994. Wayne was a member of the Church of the Nazarene for many years, served as a Sunday school teacher and church board member. He was also a member of the VFW, AMVETS, Marine Corp League and American Legion.

Steven Craig Darrah

Steven Craig Darrah, age 65, of Waverly, Iowa, died Sunday, November 15, 2020, at University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics in Iowa City, Iowa. 

Steve was born March 14, 1955, in Postville, Iowa, the son of James and Zona (Stevens) Darrah. Steve graduated from Waverly-Shell Rock High School in 1973. He then entered the United States Navy serving from 1973 to 1979. On June 11, 2005, Steve was united in marriage to Dawn Moeller at Centennial Oaks Country Club in Waverly. Around 1980, Steve started working at Crystal Heating and Plumbing. After a number of years he added the Excavation Division to the company. Steve took great pride in being a business owner and community person. He sold his company in 2017 and became semi-retired staying on at Crystal and working (if that’s what you’d call it). 

As a Mason, Steve was a member of Tyrell Masonic Lodge in Waverly where he was also an active member of Eastern Star. Lifelong member of the A.M.V.E.T.S., past President of Waverly Chamber of Commerce, former member of Kiwanis, and also enjoyed giving back to his community by volunteering many hours to WSR Booster Club and Wartburg Athletic Department. 

Steve loved to golf, watch NASCAR (he was a Martin Truex Jr. fan), take drives (never going the same way twice) and all of the volleyball travels. He truly enjoyed family time with the kids and grandkids, especially in his recent retirement years. He and Dawn have a home in Florida which they enjoyed so very much together during the winter months. That was something he always looked forward to. The time spent there was special. Steve simply enjoyed life and having fun.

Steve’s memory is honored by: wife, Dawn Darrah of Waverly; five children, Steven James (Jaime) Darrah of Shell Rock, Ryan (Leah) Kuhrt of Des Moines, Kiersten (Aaron) Foster of Waverly, Lauren (Jarod) Peters of Dysart, and Morgan Kuhrt of Waverly; six grandchildren, Katelin (Nick) Dennie, Ryan Darrah, Jonathan Darrah, Shiloh Darrah, Winston Peters, and Lennox Peters; two great-granddaughters, Hadley and Hazel; two sisters, Sherri (Steve) Dralle of Waverly and Sandi Renner of Waterloo; and sister-in-law, Diane (Gary) Reinhardt of Waverly.
