posted by T.J. Woodward.

Wade A. McAllister, 21 of Batavia, passed away on February 1, 2013 at his home. He was born May 17, 1991 in Saginaw, MI to Shane McAllister of Saginaw, MI and Jan McAllister of Batavia. Wade was very keen on helping people. He would give great advice and was always there to listen to anyone’s problems. His best friend was his dog Xena; he treated her like she was his child. He had many hobbies which include teaching himself how to do things by researching it on the computer, martial arts (his dream was to go to the Shaolin Temple to study), being outdoors, fishing, camping and hunting. He grew very fond of hunting squirrels. Wade was great at building and fixing computers and loved video games. He made sure to set time aside for his nephews to teach them how to play almost every day. Wade wanted to be a fireman and believed in not eating meat and lots of exercise to stay healthy. He was very caring and funny once you got past his sarcastic humor. Wade loved his family very much. He was a great guy and will be missed so much by his family and friends. Wade is preceded in death by his step-father Jerry Coughlin.

He is survived by his siblings Koree A. (Tiffany) McAllister of Jacksonville, NC; Shana McAllister of Pavilion; Amanda and Liz Coughlin of Attica; Ashley, Emily, and Bethany Coughlin of Gainesville; nephews Michael, Gabriel, Jeramy Logsdon.
