HOOSICK, N.Y. -- Wayne Lorens Magisano, 41, died unexpectedly from a brain aneurysm on Thursday, Feb. 15, 2007, at the Albany Medical Center in Albany, N.Y. Wayne was a loving husband to his wife Dianne (Towne) whom he married on Aug. 23, 1986, and a devoted, caring father to his son, Josh. They reside on Babcock Lake Road in the town of Hoosick.

Born Jan. 23, 1966, he was the son of Joseph and Gayle Magisano of Eagle Bridge, N.Y. He graduated in 1985 from Hoosick Falls Central School. While in school he was involved in all forms of sports and honored for having scored over 1000 points while on the varsity basketball team. He was a die-hard Yankee fan.

In addition to his wife, son and parents, he is also survived by his brother, Michael of St. Petersburg, Fla.; his maternal grandparents, Wesley and Helen Brownell of West Hoosick; Dianne’s parents, David and Alice Towne of Hoosick Falls; his in-laws, Leo and Debbie Guerin of Hoosick Falls and David and Susan Towne of North Pole, Alaska. Also his Godson Philip Lanoue IV; several aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, great-nephews, friends and four dogs that he greatly enjoyed.

When he wasn’t busy operating his heating service and repair business, MagWay, he enjoyed fishing trips to Alaska and snowmobiling with his son, Josh. Wayne was an avid bowler and passionate supporter of the HFCS Bowling Team by providing free practice and coaching for the team each Saturday at the Barbecue Recreation. Wayne also provided funding for several bowlers to attend the Dick Ritger bowling camp.
