June 21, 1942 — November 1, 2022

Ida Grove

   Dwayne Darrell Salmon was born June 21, 1942 to Verdell and Margery (Burnquist) Salmon.  Dwayne grew up on a farm north of Arthur Iowa and graduated from Ida Grove High School in 1960 where he played football.  After graduation he farmed with his father until he enlisted in the Marine Corps, serving from Feb 1962 to June 1966.  

 

   On January 18, 1963 he married Karen Ernst in Kaneohe, Hawaii.  They were blessed with three sons:  John (Georgia), Salem Oregon, Daron (Kris), Ida Grove, and Dwayne Jr. (special friend Pam), Omaha NE.

 

   In June of 1966 he worked for Bendix Field Engineering at the Apollo Tracking Station at Goldstone, CA.  During his time at the tracking station he assisted with Apollo missions 1 through 12. In 1970 Dwayne moved back to Ida Grove with his family.  He began work at Gomaco Corp, starting in the factory and working his way to Vice President.  He retired in 2008.

 

   Dwayne was a farmer at heart and continued farming his land during his retirement with his son Daron.  God, Family and Country were very important to Dwayne.  He went to Heaven peacefully on Tuesday, November 1, 2022 surrounded by his family.

 

   He was preceded in death by his parents and two sisters, Mardell Rodine and Mary Gates. He is survived by his wife, three sons, six grandchildren, two great-grandchildren, brothers Carroll, Sioux City, and Rodney, DeSoto MO, two sisters Karen Bumann, Ida Grove, Crystal Pulscher, Woodbine IA, and many nieces and nephews.
