Wayne was a great man who lives on in the hearts and minds of all who were lucky enough to have met him. He was a generous and kind neighbor who we always enjoyed seeing.... I'm sure he got a chuckle or two out of his "manhattan " neighbor working around the house.... Be at peace.... Billy & Eileen

I am sorry about the passing of your father.
All of the memories that I have of Uncle Wayne is that he was always a kind and gentle man. Just like you.
You are lucky to have had him as a father, and he was lucky to have had you as a son.

I remember very well! Wayne used to sit with a small group of us at lunchtime and we never failed to have a laugh riot at our table. He was a very gentle and kind man. I lived in Manasquan for several years but really didn't get to know him until the Courthouse. I was there for 10 years. You have lost a wonderful soul. My deepest condolences to all family members. He lived a good life! Noreen Carmody, Port Saint Lucie, FL

Rest in Peace, Uncle Wayne.
I will always have loving memories of you, Aunt Lee, Charlie, "Zicky", and Bobby.
And also fond and fun memories of the gas station, the car wash, and Camp Zehnder.
I appreciate you being a part of my life.
