Wade Allen Pince was born Dec. 25, 1970, in Cannon Falls, Minn., to the parents Dennis and Dorothy (Perkins) Pince. He graduated from Cannon Falls High School in 1989 and went on to receive his LPN degree from St. Marys Hospital. He started his nursing career at Angel's Care Center in Cannon Falls where he worked for many years before taking a nursing position at the Red Wing Health Center in 2000. For the past several years, he was employed again at Angel's Care Center and The View in Cannon Falls and most recently St. Brigid's in Red Wing.
Wade enjoyed going to sporting events and was known for his 4th of July celebrations. He also enjoyed going camping and spending time outdoors. His number one love was his family. He was a very devoted father who valued his time with his children and being involved in their activities through the years.
