Wayne Joseph Jaegers, 58, of Frankenstein, went to be with his Lord and Savior on Tuesday, December 29, 2015. He was born on March 23, 1957, in Jefferson City, the son of the late Norman and LaVerne (Smith) Jaegers. Wayne was a 1976 graduate of Fatima High School in Westphalia, and had recently earned a Degree from Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts. He grew up around the turkey business, eventually starting Jaegers Turkey Farm near Frankenstein. He raised his family on the farm. Wayne enjoyed fishing and hunting for turkey, deer, elk, and even bears. He would never miss a chance to play the card game Preference and he loved telling stories of his adventures in life. He was influential with the Frankenstein Ball Park and donated many hours to the community. Most of all he cherished the time spent with his family and friends.
