I am so sorry to read this. Wayne was a first cousin to my Dad, Charles Thomas. I just yesterday ran across a picture of him in a fancy sports car when he came to our house many years ago. Barbara and I emailed a few times and I read her book. So sorry for your loss. I am on Facebook if you wish to connect. Charla Thomas Peery

I am so sorry to read of Wayne's passing. My late husband (Allen Lawson) and I were very dear friends of his in high school and ran in the crowd with him and Dave Matherly. Wayne's and my mother both worked at the BC VA Hospital and we hung out together at picnics and the like.

We loved Wayne and his contagious laugh! He was a loving father and friend. He always had time to talk to you about what was going on in your life and his. He was sad when he lost his wife because of the love he had for her. He loved his children and talked about them immensely. We will miss him and always remember what a great friend he was to our family!
