J. Wayne Sabey, a brief tribute

Just a few days before his 70th birthday, J. (John) Wayne Sabey, suffering from a recurrent malignant brain tumor, died on the 7th of December 2009. He was my friend and co-worker. I have both personal affection and deep respect for this good man. Called home to serve his fellows in the Spirit World, he will be at the height of his powers, full of important knowledge, with a deep testimony, and righteous behavior molded through a long useful life including tests of character that have made him dependable, trustworthy, completely honest, and devoted to the service of his Savior Jesus Christ. His gifts for effective teaching will be put to important use in the work in that sphere. No doubt an important calling awaited him.

We worked together at the Western American Language Institute for about three years. We have had many discussions, some of them long, as we tried to offer a high level of service to our students. We didn’t always completely agree, of course, but there was never any rancor between us. Wayne added a level of competence and integrity which made the Institute a better educational institution for the benefit of all associated with it. He designed and created a system for testing English language communication skills that, to my knowledge, had no equals. Since we had both served as young missionaries in Japan and also lived there later, we had much to talk about and much to share. We loved the Japanese people, their language, their land, their history and their culture. I am deeply grateful for what I learned from him. I will miss him.

We send our sympathy, love and appreciation for his beloved, Marie, who is as worthy of the peace and comfort the Gospel brings at times like this as anyone we know.
