In Loving Memory of Waylyn Cole McRae
About Waylyn Cole McRae
Date of Birth: 03/25/1997
Hometown: Tioga, ND
Waylyn had a very big heart. He had a fantastic personality. He was charming, witty, a little arrogant, sarcastic, very spoiled and loved deeply. He loved playing basketball, hanging with his friends and riding his dirt bike. He had a high pitched laugh and loved to pull pranks on people. He had his mom and 2 sisters wrapped around his finger. He lived life to the fullest, he made the most out of every day. He was a junior, 32 days from being 18 (he couldn’t wait!). He had the world by the tail, wanting to go to Williston State for diesel mechanics.

On February 23, 2015, my son and two of his friends traveled to New Town to support the girls basketball ball team at Regionals. On their return to Ray, the driver lost control on black ice, went through the median and was struck by a loaded semi tanker. All 3 boys passed away.
