Dearest Wayne, you are going to be missed by your family and friends. You were always there for anyone in need. You were an amazing husband, father, grandfather, uncle, brother and friend to so many. You always had time to listen and encourage those you loved. Although it's hard to say good bye., I find comfort in the fact that I know we will see each other again. Until then, I love you Wayne!

Uncle Wayne was always a blast. Helped me learn a lot about fixing my own vehicles. When I was a kid we went boating and fishing and camping. Wayne always brought a smile to my face. Now his memories will bring me smiles and I will see him again someday in Heaven.
