It is with broken hearts that the family announces the sudden passing of our beloved Stephen “Wayne” Chaborek of Panama City Beach, Florida on July 20th, 2019 at the age of 73.

“Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, Love leaves a memory no one can steal.”

Wayne will always be lovingly remembered by his devoted wife Tammy and the granddaughter they were raising April, along with his fur babies Debo, Tasha, and Chi Chi.  He will be missed immensely by their combined children Rhonda (Brian), Kathi, Steve (Coral), Joseph (Michelle), Amanda, Brittney, and 10 grandchildren whom he loved dearly.  His sisters Judy (Danny), Jeannie, and extended family and friends. He was the rock that all family and friends could depend on.

Wayne was preceded in death and joins the love of his parents Stephen and Marcelline (Tronchin) Chaborek.

Retired from Chrysler after 34 years where he established many great relationships with friends and co-workers, along with the CAW the UAW, he will be missed by all.  A proud supporter for the Commanders Club for the Disabled American Veterans, who honored him as a Bronze Leader for his steadfast loyalty and dedication. 

The family would like to thank the staff at Sacred Heart Memorial for the care they gave. 

A very special thank you to Davis Watkins Funeral Homes & Crematory for their immense compassion and love they showed to the family.

In keeping with his wishes, Wayne was cremated on July 23.
