William “Wayde” Viss

Passed: May 31, 2023


William “Wayde” Viss of Buckeye, Arizona passed away May 31, 2023 at the age of 35. He was born January 2, 1988 in Phoenix, Arizona to William David and Jo Lynn Viss. He was preceded in death by his daughter Dixi Kay Viss.

Wayde is survived by his fiancé and best friend Adrienne M. West, daughters Daisy May Viss and Ivy June Viss, father and step-mother William and Mia Viss, mother JoLynn Viss, Brother Slayde Viss and his wife Lacey Viss and their children Libby, Virgil, and Wren, brother Cayde Viss and his wife Kaitlyn and their children Wyatt, Wayne, and Warren, and his sister Victoria Veronica Viss.

In Wayde’s early years, he attended Litchfield Elementary, Western Sky Middle, and Agua Fria High Schools. Wayde met Delilah Brisby in 2008 and had two beautiful daughters during their ten years together. He loved being a father and enjoyed spending time with his girls.

In 2014, Wayde began working in the oilfields as a pipefitter, all the while practicing welding every night after work. In 2015, he acquired his welding certification and began working as a rig welder. He worked in many states for large industrial construction companies. Wayde loved welding and went on to become a master welder. He was proficient at all forms of specialty welding. Wayde was a very hard worker and took pride in his welding abilities. In January of 2021, Wayde started his own company, “Wayde’s Welding Service.”

In his free time, Wayde enjoyed fishing, reading, hanging out with his family for family game night and jumping at the trampoline park with his daughter. He was also a member of the Men’s Group at his church. Grilled cheese sandwiches were always an option for any meal, and he knew the secret to making the best one. Wayde enjoyed being fit and worked out regularly. He loved people and never met a stranger. His generous heart led him to help anyone in need.

Wayde will be very missed by his family and friends. He loved spending time laughing with them and just being together. He was intelligent, loving, generous, kind, and humble. He was a bright and beautiful human and there will be a large empty place in our hearts without him.

    Great man probably the hardest worker in the viss family other than Neil Viss , I had lots of fun with him too.
    David would tell his 3 boys to dig a ditch
    Slayde would say get a backhoe, Cade would say dad hire some Mexicans, Wade would say how long And how deep Dad and grab the shovel

    My brothers and I were always close. It’s like I lost 30% of my soul. He will be missed everyday.

    My love, my world, my everything! I miss you so so so much! Sometimes it’s still hard for me to wrap my brain around the fact that you do not exist anywhere on this earth. Your laugh, your smile, and your vibrant personality are completely gone. Sometimes it feels like you’re going to walk in the door at any moment. Like it’s all been nightmare and I’m just about to wake up, at the same time, when I do dream about you I know that you aren’t really there. I don’t think you ever realized what an amazing impact you had on me and on this world. Your kindness never went unnoticed. I never would have made it to the other side of my daughters death without you there carrying me, holding my hand, and loving me through it. I am eternally grateful for you. Your great big heart was a blessing to all of us. You were deeply loved by many, which is one of the many reasons this has been so hard. It has been a strange and awful thing to have to learn to live without the one person that you simply can not live without.  It’s not really living. It’s surviving. You are forever etched in my heart. You were my best friend, my rock, my comfort, one of the only people that can make me really laugh. I just wish I could have one last amazing hug, one last kiss on my forehead before you leave for work, one last I love you more game, I’ll let you win this time, promise. I know these wishes won’t come true and the heaviness of it all sets in with the realization you are truly gone. You’ll never know how intensely your family and I feel your loss. I try to find some comfort knowing you’re at peace, I know you’re free. Rest well my love, I’ll always love you forever and a day, promise promise!

    I have known the Viss Brothers for many years and I am very sadden to hear that Wayde is no longer with us physically. He will be missed, however his spirit will live on for ever. My condolences to the entire family and his brothers who were so very close and always ready for a good tag team wrestling event with each other on a silage pile at the dairy. Our fond memories will keep him near to us all forever!
