I knew Wayne from the South University Starbucks. I almost daily talked to him about news and politics. I will miss seeing him.

Wayne was my faithful friend and fellow officer at the University of Michigan Museum of Art for over 30 years. In retirement we met weekly at the South U. Starbucks where Wayne's ability to carry on a conversation with anyone shined. When in 2019 Parkinson's ended my ability to walk and I landed in Birchwood Retreat AFC home in Chelsea Wayne called me weekly as I did him, We each forwarded lots of newspaper animal pictures. Wayne has been a gift from God to me, and it is with tremendous sadness that I send condolences to brother Mike and family. Wayne, you are my brother in Christ; See you soon!

Wayne was a neighbor to a rental property we own. On football Saturdays he’d stop by while I was parking cars and visit. Or if I was out in the yard working he would stop and chat. Very nice man and I am so sad for him. I wish I could have helped him find happiness some how. A housemate told me about his death today. I was taking Wayne some tomato’s from my garden today when I found out. Please would the family please call me at 735-846-5864. Thank you.

I met Wayne about three years ago. Wayne liked to sit out on the porch and would talk to anyone who passed by. He was friendly, kind, and had a good sense of humor. He loved to talk about politics and said he wanted to live long enough to see Donald Trump voted out of office. He always took an interest in the things I enjoyed. Every now now and then Wayne and I would walk to the Washtenaw Dairy and have coffee. I enjoyed the conversations.

My condolences to Wayne's family.

I met Wayne five years ago. I will miss his kindness, sense of humor, and knowledge of history. There were times when he seemed to have a photographic memory. Everything he read found a permanent place in his brain. Wayne always looked at the bright side of things even when his circumstances indicated otherwise. He shared many funny stories about growing up in Highland Park, MI and his four years at the University of Michigan in the 1960's. Wayne will be missed by those fortunate enough to know him. He shared what little he had with others and he did so willingly.

My condolences to his family.
