LaWayne was born April 8, 1923, the third son and fifth child of Samuel Holden and Sarah DEAN CHAPMAN. He often commented that it was fun to have a twin sister who did not share his birthday. He was born at 11:45 p.m. and his twin sister, Loraine, was born at 12:10 a.m. the next day. His early life was spent on the family farm in the community of Groveland, near Blackfoot, ID. There he received his elementary and high school education, graduating from Blackfoot High School in May 1941. He attended the University of Idaho at Moscow until he entered the armed forces.
He married Phyllis Ruth MARLEY in the Logan L.D.S. Temple on May 28, 1942, shortly before he entered the U.S. Army where he served in both the African and European theaters. To him and Phyllis were born a daughter and four sons. The youngest son, Evan lived only a short time before he passed away as an infant.
When he returned from the military, he began working for Idaho Typewriter Exchange in Pocatello, ID, and was one of their key employees until he resigned for health reasons in 1958. After brief periods of employment with Rogers Brothers Seed Co. and at the Atomic Energy site near Arco, ID, he became an assistant city clerk for the city of Idaho Falls, and in 1963 became the first personnel director for the city of Idaho Falls. In 1969 he became a field director for Public Employee Retirement System of Idaho. This brought about his transfer to Boise in October 1972, where he served PERSI with distinction until his retirement in 1986.
He had a great love of life and of people. His magnetic personality drew people to him and all who knew him enjoyed his keen sense of humor. He was very civic-minded and enjoyed very much the performing arts. He was the driving force behind many community-wide musical productions in the Idaho Falls area. He served for many years with the Civil Air Patrol in Idaho Falls where he achieved the rank of Lieutenant Colonel.
Throughout his life, he was active in the L.D.S. Church, serving as counselor to two Bishops, as ward, stake and regional speech and drama director, and in various teaching assignments. Service in the Boise Idaho Temple filled many lonely hours following the passing of his beloved Phyllis, and it was there that he met and fell in love with Ermadean MILES. They were married October 14, 1989, in the Boise Idaho Temple and served together as missionaries in the mission office of the Idaho Boise mission from January 1991 to March 1992. Following their mission service they continued to serve in the Boise Idaho Temple until illness forced him to take a medical leave.
He is survived by his sweetheart, Ermadean; a daughter, Kay BACON and her husband Larry of Florence, OR; three sons and their wives, Brian and Jeanne of Rexburg, ID, John and Kay, and Adrian and Tina of Idaho Falls; two stepsons and their wives, Robert and Carol MILES, and Tom and Jil MILES of Boise; and a step-daughter and her husband, Patti and Michael NANCOLAS of Caldwell; thirty-five grandchildren; one great-grandchild, and numerous nieces and nephews. He is also survived by a brother, LaMar and his wife Verna of Spokane, WA, and his twin sister and her husband, Loraine and Chris FAIRCHILD of Pocatello.
