Wayne Rex Schulenberg, 75, of Table Rock, NE, passed away October 16, 2021 in Lincoln, NE. He was born on February 21, 1946 in Falls City, NE, to Charles Orville and Edna Lorena (Raper) Schulenberg. Wayne grew up on his parent’s farm northwest of Fall City. When Wayne was younger, what always made him feel better was his Mothers Chili.
Wayne worked at Ken Morehead Chevrolet in Falls City, he owned a body shop in Auburn, and drove for NE Bulk, also out of Auburn. He then worked for Ken Parde Used Cars in Beatrice, prior to starting T-Town Motors as owner/operator, in Tecumseh. T-Town Motors started as a used car dealership for a few years and then mostly became a business repairing and selling rebuilt semi-tractors and trailers. His business continued in Tecumseh until he moved it to Table Rock for five years before his retirement. After his retirement, Wayne and Nancy kept themselves very busy working on the home they shared.
He enjoyed spending time with his family and friends. Wayne was very fond of his grandson, Jayce who recently graduated high school. His hobbies revolved around hunting, fishing, cars, trucks, and boats. Wayne was an avid NASCAR fan. If he wasn’t at the races he was watching it on TV while on the phone with his son Marc, who would also be watching, and they would just talk, laugh, and enjoy the race together. He also enjoyed watching Husker Volleyball with his wife Nancy, who could tell you how Wayne had a great sense of humor. He was blessed with his wife’s cooking; which usually resulted in a nap afterwords. Wayne’s family and friends will miss him immensely.
