Joyce and all your family, We are sorry to learn of Wayne's passing. There were so many memories over so many years, but most of all was my mom and her "barking dogs". He never let her forget that day and I'm picturing them having another laugh about it. Marie and Roy treasured your friendship. How nice it was that through you and Marie they became such good friends. I think Wayne was at every wrestling match I ever went to in JC and some at UE. Sending you much love and may the peace of Christ be with you all in the time ahead.
Love, Al and Dora Mae

David & I are privileged to have met Wayne quite a few years ago. He was a gentle giant who loved his family dearly. His stories, of life, were wonderful & he will be missed by all who knew him.
Rest in peace Wayne.

One of my favorite memories of Grandpa was when I would sit in the living room with him and we would talk for hours about any topic. Even when I was little he valued what I had to say. And even when we disagreed the conversation remained repectful and my opinion was important. My second favorite memory was when he would be working on something and he'd jam his finger or bump his head and swear; Grandma and I just couldnt contain our laughter to the point of being obnoxious about it but he just took it in stride... (but not laughing). My foremost thought about Grandpa is that he taught me reliability, self worth, fortitude, integrity, and a work ethic that has kept me going during the worst times. These are the things that live on and get passed on and why I will always appreciate Grandpa as one of my favorite people. Love, Jenny
