Mr.Walters was my instructor for basic engines at NTI. We laughed and besides him I was the oldest in class at 44.He was more to me than just an instructor he was a friend my Christian brother and the sharing of our stories always seemed to be a topic in class sometimes.In fact I also had him in service writing which was my first class he was shadowing Mr.Carrier in that. Fly high Mr.Walters and see you again thanks for the memories and the teaching you not only gave me but the other students and thanks for being a friend. Sorry i didnt write sooner i just found out last week of your passing

Marianne and Family,
While I never had the pleasure of meeting you, I did have the pleasure of knowing and working with Wayne. I am so very saddened to hear the news of his passing. There are no words to express the feelings that everyone has right now. I will continue to pray for comfort for you and your family during this time. Wayne was a wonderful, kind hearted person and we are all so lucky to have known him.

We hold special memories of Wayne., especially when he would come out to Texas at Christmas to see his kids and grandkids. One special one is when he and Frankie brought their motorcycle out there and we went riding . Loved his smile and his love for his wife Marianne and family. We will miss him terribly, but will see you in Heaven..We love you Wayne.
