My heartfelt sympathy to Wayne's family.
We were high school friends and it saddens me to know he's gone from this world.
I'm grateful for his love of his family and life.
Heaven must have been missing an angel.
Rest in everlasting light my friend.

I only had the pleasure of knowing Wayne through work but the way he always treated the people he came into contact with with respect and kindness along with the way he ran his successful company, and of course a great family man made me have great admiration for him, he will be greatly missed by many. Rest in peace my friend.

I had the good fortune of knowing Wayne up through high school. He was always the go to guy and the one to have as your partner, be it on the golf course or the pool table or the card table. Our last visit together was thirty years ago but this news still weighs heavy on my heart. Here is a picture of some of the gang we used to run with. I didnโ€™t get anyone elseโ€™s permission to use it but Iโ€™ll bet they all feel as I do. Rest your soul, old friend. You are missed! My condolences go out to your family and friends, who have known and loved you throughout your wonderful life.

The sound of your laugh and your huge smile will never be forgotten. There are so many good memories. The St. Patrick's Days, the Halloween's, the Christmas Yankee Swaps, when Nick was little and would give you his crackers to eat after he licked the cheese off, how you glowed when your grandchildren walked in the room and ran into your arms, and how you were just the most incredible dad and grandfather.
Our hearts break for Viv, Cole, Melissa, Dek, Kassin, Mila, Callie and Erik. They all lost a true role model, hero and friend. You will forever be missed xoxo

Wayne was the kool-aid Dad of the neighborhood. He showed up when other Dad's didn't. He touched many young lives and made sure they knew their worth. Melissa and Nicole thank you for sharing your Dad. He was an awesome man. Vivienne thank you for some of the best memories shared with both of you. I will always be grateful for his kindness, he will never be forgotten. His heart was bigger than his smile.
