It was a true blessing to have the opportunity to work with Wayne for 5 years. He was a great mentor with a heart of gold. I'll always remember him as a proud husband, father and friend with many stories to share about the ones he loved. My heart goes out to the family.

Great memories of traveling to youth basketball tournaments when our sons played together on a traveling team. Wayne was a great guy to talk with and laugh. Many enjoyable conversations. Our condolences to the family.
