  • I knew Wayne in High School. The memory I have of him is that of a bigger than life person who was always looking out for the little guy. I was usually the little guy he looked after. May the Lord’s comfort be with you. Jim Kinsey

  • I had the great pleasure of working with Wayne for many years. He was not only a great friend, he was my fellow Raider in a “Donkey” group. My favorite lunch buddy, and my very dear friend. I will miss him, and our Elmers days.
