Wayde Steven Carlson was born April 7, 1960 at Holy Rosary Hospital in Miles City. He was the son of Arnold (Carl) and Bernie Freimark Carlson.

He grew up and attended school in Miles City. He then worked at KATL as a radio personality. That was where he soared. Being on the radio brought out the best in Wayde and many people remember his show from the 1980's. Wayde loved music, collecting it and sharing it with everyone. Wayde was also a radio personality for Magic 98.5 and New 95 in Billings.

Wayde had held the position of president of the Billings Ham Radio Club with his call sign N7KVW.

When he moved to Phoenix he worked in security and then again when he moved back to Billings.

Wayde then moved to Miles City in August of 2017 to be closer to his daughter, Jennifer.

Wayde was an avid collector of WWII memorabilia and had a vast collection of, let's say, many rare items. Wayde spent many nights listening to his scanner and watching television with his beloved dog Rascal.

He was also a great fan of the WWE and loved spending his Monday nights watching his favorite wrestlers while tinkering with a radio and watching ME TV every night.

He is survived by his daughter Jennifer and son-in-law Richard Cox, his grandchildren, Calvin, Marcus, Evan, Claudia and Vanessa, his sister Kay Carlson (Bob Bergerson), brother Mike Carlson, nieces Jodi, Keely and Jenny, nephew Jason and many cousins.

He was preceded in death by his father Arnold Carlson, mother Bernice Carlson and his Aunt Irene Dutton.

Wayde passed away at home on September 15, 2019.
