A lifelong athlete, Wayne joined the US Marine Corps at age 17, and proudly served our country during WWII. After graduating from Occidental College in Los Angeles, he worked at the Bank of America for 38 years, most of which was served in Long Beach, CA. Wayne was proud of three things: his conviction to his Catholic faith, his family and his military service to his country. His smile and charisma touched all who met him. While he will be greatly missed, we are confident he has claimed his everlasting reward. Semper Fidelis. Services at St. Hedwig Catholic Church, Los Alamitoson Saturday, Oct. 19.
