RIP Wayne. Another very good man and Tri Beach firefighter joins my husband, Mitchell LeHue in the eternal presence of God. I know the Lord said"Well done my good and faithful servant." I remember Wayne as being a very faithful firefighter and a great help and friend to my son when he was a Jr Firefighter. Thanks to Wayne, Mitchell and all the good men at TriBeach, my son went on to be a Firefighter. I know Wayne will be missed just as much as I miss my husband.

Wayne was always a genuine soul and never had a bad word to say about anyone. He truly cared to know when he asked you how you were doing. I'll miss his corny jokes and his belly laugh! Fly high Wayne! See you on the other side.

I will always remember and appreciate Wayne for accepting me, "the female", years ago at Tri-Beach VFD. He immediately accepted me and my interest in working with the dept as I worked towards my Certified Fire Investigator Cert.
Truly a friend to all, he will be sorely missed.
Thank you Wayne for just being you.
