Wayne was a man of few words, but when he spoke it was always straightforward and from his heart. He was a kind man with a very warm heart. Wayne Everhart "set the example." He never asked anything of anyone that he was unwilling to do first. He lived by the motto "life is too short to be unhappy." He was loved by many, and will be missed.
