Wayne was a loving and devoted husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather. Anyone who knew Wayne, knew he enjoyed sitting on his front porch sipping on his Diet Coke and feeding and watching the birds. Wayne was a parishioner of St. Gregory Catholic Church and a member of the Knights of Columbus Co. 6170. He loved participating and watching golf. His most enjoyable time was spending time with his children and grandchildren but most of all the life he created with his beautiful wife was the biggest blessing. Wayne will be missed by all who knew him and now rest in the arms of his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
The family would like to thank Debra Gorr, Christy Griffin, Nathaniel Ward with Haydel Memorial Hospice for their care and compassion. Also, many thanks to his wonderful sitters, Eva Sapia and Donna Sapia.
A private memorial will be held at a later date with burial to be held at St. Francis Cemetery No. 2.
