David Alexander Wene"

1958 - 2021



David Alexander Wene (1958-2021)

David was born January 15th, 1958 in Boise, Idaho to Johnny A. Wene, and Sharon P. Cantwell.

David peacefully passed away at the Hospice House in Bend, Oregon on March 21st, 2021.

When David was a baby, his mother relocated her young family from Boise, Idaho to Oregon

City, Oregon. It was there that she met and married Frank Schreiber. Their next home, and

one that David remembered fondly, was a little cabin in the woods located in Tenmile, Oregon.

He attended the local school there, and then just before high school the family moved to

Myrtle Creek, Oregon where David attended South Umpqua High School for 3 years. He left

after his Junior year to further develop his passion for art and graphics by attending the

Portland Art School. The training he received there became the foundation of his career later

on. It wasn’t that long after that when his work took him to Nevada where he met, and later

married, the love of his life Candace M. Palmer.

David was preceded in death by his two brothers John Wene and Danny Wene Schreiber, and

his parents Frank and Sharon Schreiber.

David leaves behind his other brother Michael Schrieber, his wife Candace M. Wene, and their

children Rae E. (Palmer) Hammond, Todd Hammond, Garrett A. Wene, Ashley Wene, Kevin

Wene, Danielle Wene, two grandchildren Anthony and Dayshia Hammond, and his niece Jodi

Schreiber and her son Jacob.

P.S. “You dropped your pocket.”
