Dwyane Wade & Dwyane Wade Sr.

*Dwyane Wade’s father is in a bit of a pickle with Uncle Sam for not paying back a loan to attend trade school.

TMZ has learned … D-Wade Sr. is being sued by the U.S. Govt. for defaulting on a $4,630.46 loan intended for higher education.

According to the docs, Wade Sr. borrowed the cash to attend the Environmental Technical Institute — which specializes in the heating, air conditioning and refrigeration industry.

The loan was approved in 2001 — the same year Dwyane Wade Jr. entered his freshman year at Marquette University.

The U.S. Govt. is going after Wade Sr. for the full amount of the loan — plus interest — totaling $6,221.44 … which DW Sr. could probably find in his son’s couch cushions.

Attempts to reach Wade Sr. for comment were unsuccessful.

Oh yeah, one more thing. Now we know why D. Wade spells his first name the unusual and tricky way he does. ‘Cause daddy did it!
