Wayne J. "Big Wayne" Fruhwirth, age 61, of Knoxville, earned his wings on March 6, 2017. He was born in Troy, MO. He was a big fan of Harley Davidsons. He loved movies, and he was an outside kind of guy. Back in his younger days, you could find him at the drag strip. The love of his life was his son, Wayne N. Fruhwirth. He was preceded in death by his parents, William and Eleanor Fruhwirth; and brother, Blane Fruhwirth. He is survived by his son, Wayne N. Fruhwirth (Ashleigh Treadway); sisters, Debbie Kleine, and Donna Kean; and special friend, Theresa Martin. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the family to help with funeral expenses. There will be a Celebration of Life at Blount Baptist Church (321 Higgins Ave, Knoxville, TN 37920) in Knoxville on Sunday, March 19, 2017 from 4:30-6:00 pm, with a service to follow at 6:00pm.
