Wayne lived life on his terms, tough as nails, so much larger than life, a true legend... a legacy, that will forever live on in the hearts of all who knew and loved him.

Wayne first was my brother in law then became my friend. We shared good times and bad times but I always knew what ever the time he would express his true feelings. Glad I got to know him and pray he is at peace. Praying for the family to also have peace
