I just found out that Wayne died. He rebuilt my Merc OB in the 90s. I went without my own boat for many years, and just a year or so ago brought a boat to him for service. He was so nice. He knew that I used to be a boater who depended on others to dock so he came out of the shop to help me get to and from the dock outside.

It’s with a heavy heart I write this. What a shock it was hearing of Wayne’s passing. I met Wayne 60 years ago when we were stationed at Andrews Air Force Base in the 95th Fighter Interceptor Squadron. We actually were roommates for awhile before he was transferred overseas to France. I remember Wayne as a fun loving guy who always made you laugh. I will miss him greatly. Rest In Peace my Air Force buddy.

I was lucky enough to meet Wayne five short years ago and saw him almost every Tuesday from the first week we met. This past week just didn’t feel right driving past your shop and not being able to stop in to see you and hear your laugh. I can’t put into words just how much on an impact Wayne had on me with his caring, yet carefree, nature and I could never say thank you enough for your encouragement and your ability to put a smile on my face while I was going through my health issues. I’m very sad that you’re gone, but so very fortunate that our lives crossed paths. You will be missed by many, forgotten by no one, rest easy my friend.

I first meet Wayne when he and Gary had their shop across the street from Port Tarpon marina in 1989 when I had bought a new boat and they installed new electronics for me. I told Wayne I also would be needing canvas and he introduced me to Bill and Betty Bird who owned Seebird canvas in the Port Tarpon Marina. Soon Wayne moved his shop across the street to the marina and i continued to use Wayne and Seebird to maintain my boat. 9 years later Betty bird passed away and my wife and I bought Seebird canvas and still own the business since 1998 and it has been very good to us and we have Wayne to thank. Wayne was a great man and friend and will be deeply missed.

I am very sad that you are no longer here with us Wayne, but thank you for all the great memories that we have shared over the past 16 years. I will miss your great sense of humor the most. Always a laugh when I'd stop by or phone you. You will greatly be missed my friend, but never forgotten. We are all reminded at times like these how precious and short life can be, my deepest condolences go out to your family.

Only spent short amounts of time visiting throughout the years but it was clear Uncle Wayne was a joy to be around, a true patriot. I hope to see Marty and family soon when this evil virus is no longer a threat. God speed Wayne, we will see you again!

Mr Wayne (Pops)
I met you when I was 16 as I was Garys girlfriend at that time. Your teasing I can remember would make me laugh and The amount of Mountian Dews that were snuck out of the back room of The Shop on Broadway I just knew We were gonna get in trouble.. But Youd grin and Blame Gary and give me a wink ..I loved you then and So Glad after all those years ago When FBook kicked in I got a Friend Request and Was so tickled to get your Ford jokes and Teasing once agian. YOU raised a Great son And to this Day is still 1 of my best friends. I promise to never be to far from my phone to listen and just be that friend..
You Will be so missed and Never ever forgotten.
Love you Mr Wayne .. Your Ford Girl.
