Spent many summer days back in our teen years running up and down the creek, swimming and just being teenagers. I have many fond memories of Wayne and am very sad about his passing. RIP my old friend.

Gonna miss the ole boy. Grew up with him as neighbor and friend. Good guy. Enjoyed time with him and Kathy and Jill vacationing, socializing and partying. Never a dull moment with Wayne. I remember the old days and the old hot rods he had running up and down the road. Hell of a guy. Gone but never forgotten. Rest in peace.
