Funeral Mass for Wayne R. “Doc Wiley” Wiley, DDS, 80, of Mentor, will be 11 a.m. Friday at St. Mary of the Assumption Church, 8560 Mentor Ave., Mentor.
Doc lost his fight with Leukemia on Friday, Sept. 4, 2020, at his residence.
Born April 2, 1940, in Cleveland, after graduation from Ohio State Dental School, he was stationed at Ft. Riley, Kansas while on active duty in the U.S. Army. Doc returned to Mentor for the next 53 years.
Affectionately known as “Doc Wiley,” he maintained a dental practice in Mentor for 43 years, before retiring in 2010.
Doc was a member of St. Mary of the Assumption Church in Mentor for 53 years, was active in the Men’s Club and Knights of Columbus, and retired as a U.S. Army Colonel after 25 years of service. He enjoyed gardening, loved working in his yard and watching THE Ohio State Football games and The Best Damn Band in the Land. Doc adored cheering on his grandkids at their sporting events and known as the guy yelling “Go Stephanie Rose.” He also enjoyed dog sitting for his grand-dog, Zoey.
He was the beloved husband of 57 years to Coletta E. (nee Sprenger) Wiley; loving father of Timothy P. (Tammie) Wiley, Keith R. Wiley, Karen E. (Michael) Ferrante, and Kevin J. (Camille) Wiley: cherished grandfather of Stephanie Ferrante, Dominic Ferrante, Angelo Ferrante, Vincent Ferrante, Keara Wiley, Cacey Wiley, and Ashley Wiley; brother of George (Janet) Wiley; and uncle of nieces and nephews.
Wayne was preceded in death by his parents, Harold G. and Rose C. (nee Fleming) Wiley.
Family will receive friends from 4 to 8 p.m. Thursday at McMahon-Coyne-Vitantonio Funeral Home, 6330 Center St., (Route 615, north of Route 2), in Mentor. With Doc’s love of Buckeye football, family and friends are encouraged to wear Ohio State Football apparel at the visitation. Burial will be in All Souls Cemetery in Chardon.
In lieu of flowers, contributions in his name are suggested to the American Cancer Society.

Dr. Wiley was a very special person. I will sincerely miss seeing him and chatting about high school sports. He took a real interest in following my daughter’s softball career at MHS.

He loved his family and was so proud of all of his grandchildren. He enjoyed following their academic and athletic accomplishments.

His kindness and generosity will be his legacy. I hope the memories of him will be a blessing to his family and friends.

Sincere condolences to Mrs. Wiley and Karen. My thoughts are with you.

Deepest Sympathy...from a MHS '58 classmate...Although Wayne seemed the quiet type in school, we all saw a different fellow at our reunions. He was fun and friendly, always with a great smile and a cheerful greeting. I moved to Oklahoma in 1972 but I made it to most of the reunions...and although one of the reasons was to visit with old friends, another big reasons was to see how we all had changed over the years. It was a joy to see Wayne open up and be the fun fellow he was always meant to be. I am sorry for your loss...I know he will be greatly missed.
