Beloved local retired dentist Dr. Brian E. Wahle passed away on Sunday, January 3, 2016. Brian was born in Helena, Montana to Bernard H. and Marguerite G. Wahle. He graduated Mills High School in Millbrae and went on to further his education and attended Gonzaga University for pre-dental schooling and later earned a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from Creighton University School of Dentistry in 1966.
Brian met Mary Ellen, his wife of 50 years at Creighton University and soon moved to Napa where he established his dental practice and practiced for forty years. They enjoyed trips to Cabo San Lucas, and occasional cruises.
Dr. Wahle was known for his kind heart and incredible love and interest in everyone he met. He had a shining personality that was accompanied by the gift of storytelling and a love of fishing and the outdoors. We will miss his warmth, his beautiful smile, and his genuine friendliness. He is survived by a world of family and friends.
Donations may be made to Creighton University School of Dentistry or The Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation in memory of Dr. Brian Ernest Wahle.
