My memories of Wayne when he worked for me was that he was always dependable, dedicated, honest, customer driven and well spoken among his peers.
He was a leader in new innovation and always helped the new management people in the department with understanding new services and the best way to sell our customers with these new services.
He made my job easier because I never had to worry about the dedication or the commitment from Wayne. Even though our paths didn't cross recently, I considered him a dear friend. Sending God's blessing and prayers to his family
He will be truly missed
Rest in Peace my Friend

My heartfelt sympathy to the Slay family for their loss of a kind and loving man. To Stacey, I am heartened when I remember his story of seeing you for the first time and falling in love with his first child- so wanted and welcome-each one of you children. . God Bless you as you move forward in his memory.
