I met Wayne at the Breezy Hill Cafe in Foster back in the early 1990's. Wayne had a big heart even though he tried to hide it. I had the pleasure of playing his wedding at the Foster CC and we rocked the roof off the place. I was back in RI a few months ago and while in Helen's I asked about him. I sure wish I could have seen him one more time. Rest well "Gomes" you will always be sorely missed!

I remember Wayne selling firewood in the Foster area the same time I was in Exeter in the 70's. Pretty sure we competed against each other in the woodsman contest at the Rocky Hill state fair.
My condolences to his family and friends, and the Club.
