Kelly Steven Wade, 59, of Hiko, NV, passed away on Sunday January 2, 2022.
Kelly was born on October 16. 1962, in Las Vegas, NV to LaVar and Kaye Wade. He met his loving wife, Dawn, at the age of 12 and they have been together since.
Always a cowboy, he was heavily involved in the family ranch and competed in rodeo events from a young age. After graduating high school, he worked for a few years with his brother at an upholstery shop. In 1983, he started work as a sign service technician at YESCO. He continued his career in the sign business, as a Project Manager, for the next 38 years. His career allowed him to travel to various states and countries where he always took a little time to play tourist and see the sights. His biggest passion was silverwork and engraving. He enjoyed getting to create beautiful pieces for family and friends.
