Uncle Wayne, you will be truly missed. It was always a pleasure to be in your company, and you were always such a sweet and friendly man. As Kristi says, "Uncle Wayne is so cute, I just wanna wrap him up and put a bow on him!". May you rest in peace.

So sorry for your loss! I remember Uncle Wayne a little bit from when I was a kid and teenager traveling out there during the summer. I remember his great laugh. Thinking of you in your hard time. Like Andrea, I wish I could've known him better.

Wayne was a great neighbor. We have been very fortunate to live next door to Wayne (and Louise) for nearly 20 years. We will miss him, his delicious summer vegetables, and have the fondest of memories of him.

Terrie, Trevor & I send our condolences to the family.

Uncle Wayne, you are the best person in the world with your southern hospitality and your ability to make people feel at home when they are around you. You will be dearly missed but the memories will live on. Thank you for my Schrader knife With love and adoration Roger

To Larry and Jennifer and family, We, Dorsey, Glenna, Chris and Andrea are truly sorry to hear of Wayne's passing. This really affected dad....very sad. I asked him if he wanted to say anything here on this post but he could not think of anything....he said he has good memories of Wayne. His first memory is when Wayne was first born. Be sure to call Dorsey if you have questions about those younger years. I got to thinking about how I personally knew the other brothers and sisters better than I did know of Wayne and that is sad on my part. Please know that we are thinking of all of you.....love you....please stay in contact.

Uncle Wayne! How patient you were with me as a youngster wanting to hold and play your hand-crafted guitar! WILDWOOD FLOWER. That's the song you played the most. I still see you walking through the kitchen door with that guitar. And if one of the boys was there they greeted you with "Hello BOURBON...how are ya." Took me years to figure out it was a nick name duly tagged..Haha.
Great memories.....guitar, vegetable gardens, great smile & loving heart!

I always smile when I think of Uncle Wayne and his slow soft way of speaking. So many great memories of him and Aunt Louise, most of them filled with laughter. I am so blessed to have had both of them as an influence of love and family. Larry and Jenny, I will be praying for comfort for you and the grandchildren. I wish I could hug you both and share your tears. As you well know time will pass and the pain become less and the memories sweeter. All of us that loved him and were loved by him will remember him because of the afore mentioned legacy of love, respect, honor and his own special brand of good ole southern charm. Love to all ~ Robin
