We had the privilege of knowing Wayne for over 25 years. It started out as meeting him during our need of a Pest Control service. We heard his business advertised on the radio station Love720. Everything happens for a reason. With each visit we learned about our families, vacations, and any milestones our families reached. Wayne knew when both our sons were born, who both affectionately called him the "Bugman". This nickname remained their entire lives. Wayne provided more than a home service to us.....we considered him a friend. We know he loved his family dearly, enjoyed va cations, and was very proud of his grandsons. He will be dearly missed by many, but has a legacy that will live on. Daryl,Dy nelle,Darrin and Dalton Zehring

I first got to know Wayne at CEFCH... went on a missions trip to Louisiana and spent a week cleaning, painting, and serving after hurricane Katrina. Wayne was one of the “in charge /go to guys” on the trip. That’s when I first got to know him. I remember learning how to use a nail gun, let one of the nails fly just missing Poor Wayne’s feet, as it PINGED by him... and a big WOOPS, sorry Wayne, he was a very Tolerant man. We had great fun and laughed a lot. So very sorry for your loss, he will be missed.
