GOSHEN — Wayne L. Wogoman, 82, died early Friday morning at I.U. Health Goshen Hospital.

He was born Feb. 19, 1931 in Goshen, to Charles J. and Alethah (Loy) Wogoman.

On June 12, 1953, he married Caryl Jean Miller in Goshen.

He was preceded in death by his parents and two brothers, Harold and L. Keith Wogoman.

A lifetime Goshen resident, Mr. Wogoman graduated from Goshen High School in 1949. He was one of the first employees at Fidler’s, Inc., eventually becoming the Vice President of Operations. He retired in 1990 after 42 years.

He served with the U.S. Army during the Korean Conflict.

One of his passions was flying, earning his instrument rating in his 50’s.

There has been discussion at West Goshen Elementary School to require mandatory student uniforms in the future. How do you feel about the prospect of mandatory student uniforms in a public school environment?

I think it’s an excellent idea that is way overdue
I think it’s a bad idea and would be restrictive for students and parents.
