Wayne Bridges
December 22, 1944 - November 26, 2018

Floyd Wayne Bridges of Austin passed away at his home on Monday, November 26, 2018. Wayne was born December 22, 1944 in San Angelo, Texas to Louis Alexander and Ruby Waggoner Bridges of Bronte, Texas. He attended schools in Bronte, College Station, and Eden, graduating from Eden High School in 1963.

Wayne attended college at Texas A&M University, graduating with a BS in Ag Science in 1969. He married Jacquelyn Rabon of Eden on January 29, 1966.

Wayne began a career in public education that would span 35 years and impact countless lives in the Austin area. He taught Ag Science at Del Valle High School and Jack C. Hayes High School for many years. Wayne was named recipient of the Outstanding Agriculture Teacher Award by the Texas Sheep and Goat Raisers' Association in 1978.

After receiving a Master’s in Education from SWTSU in 1984 Wayne became an assistant principal in the Hayes CISD, serving on different campuses. He officially retired in 2004 yet continued to substitute teach in the Lockhart and Hayes High Schools until January 2018. Wayne's heartfelt love for young people and constant desire was to always be a positive influence on the lives of the many students whose paths he crossed. He was loved and respected by family, students, friends, and fellow educators; he shall be greatly missed.

Wayne was a member of the First Baptist Church of Elroy, where he served in various capacities, as well as teacher of the Men's Bible Class for several years.

Wayne is survived by his wife, Jacquelyn, his sons Stanton Bridges (wife Rhonda), Mitchell Bridges, and Jeff Cooper; and his grandchildren Kaley Dzienowski, Cody and Matthew Bridges, and Caysie Cooper; also, his sister Barbara and brother-in-law Robert Stansberry of Eden and brother-in-law Kent Rabon of Mason.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be sent to First Baptist Church of Elroy or to the charity of your choice.

The family wishes to give thanks and express their appreciation to Wayne's team of doctors and nurses at St. David's South Austin Medical Center, Texas Oncology, and Compassus Hospice for the loving care shown to Wayne and his family during his battle with cancer for the past year.
