I worked with Wayne in the late 90's, early 2000's. Such a lovely guy. I am saddened to hear of his passing, so young. May he rest in peace. I will keep him and all of you in my prayers!

Pam, Collin and Kieristen,

My sincerest love and thoughts and wishes are with you in this difficult time. While I cannot comprehend what you're going through, I do know that you had one of the most amazing husbands/fathers anyone could ask for.

The normal conversations with Wayne were always stellar, but there's two stories that stand out to me about Wayne over the others. Largely because of the absurdity.

1. When I was a youngster living down in Orlando, a new GM took over our store and much of the staff was fired. Although I was actively looking for jobs, rent was looming. After the 1st passed, the complex I was in put an eviction notice on my door (quite lenient right). I had called my folks to ask to borrow funds and they had said you'll figure it out. So I'm freaking out, about to be evicted. Don't even remember how Wayne and I talked but soon as he heard wind of my predicament he drove for hours down and paid my rent right there. Someone who cared so much for family and helping others is one to be cherished.

2. He REALLY wanted to go to a casino. We ended up going and I was poor (this was around the same time). He just shoved some cash in my hand -- don't remember how much 50? 100? It wasn't that he gave me money that stood out; it was that he was so selfless and wanted other people to have a good time that he was fine giving his nephews and nieces a little bit of spending money to have a memorable experience. That has always stuck out with me because you can never take money with you; but the love and experience and memories last a lifetime.

He is loved and missed always.
