I remember a night when Waylon, Joey and I swapped cars. I got the best deal in that one as I drove Waylons convertible. Waylons truck didnt fair out to well that evening. Some of you may know the story. We were all out joy riding. Of course in Waylon fashion my car come back cleaned spotless full tank of gas and all.
I sure was shocked to hear this news. Several of my younger memories include Waylon. Right when I heard the news I could hear his unique voice. Heaven definitely received one of Earths amazing people. My heart goes out to all who knew and loved him.

I met Waylon a lot of years ago, one of my best friends was his next door neighbor, Waylon and I formed an instant friendship, and it continued through the years, he was a true and loyal friend and non judgemental and listen to you vent about anything, he pulled my behind out of a few tight spots, and one of the 1st to show up when you needed a friend, I seen him a few months ago at Logans Store in Hayden, and we stood there and shot the bull for 45 minutes, I wished I had known about this, I would've had a lot more to say to my friend, till we meet again my dear friend, you will be missed..

I count it an honor to have been a friend to Waylon and a fellow co-worker for several years. Waylon was truly one of a kind and will be terribly missed at work. Waylon would give you the shirt off his back or the last dollar he had. He was the definition of a true friend and he always put others before himself. He was always an encouragement to me and I am thankful and grateful to have known Waylon. Rest in Peace my friend. My sincerest sympathy to his family in this difficult time.

My memory is of the first time i ever saw waylon. He pulled up in front of pasquales where i work 27 yrs ago on a doon buggy. I think that is how you spell it...anyways he had on the funny big orange goggles and i thought this guy is funny looking.......we became instant friends that very day. He has been a part of my life and my family for 27 yrs. I will miss you for the rest of time waylon. Prayers for the family. God speed sweet friend.
