My very sincere condolences to the family and friends of Wayne who has been a good friend to me for many ,many years. While we did not socialize with any frequency we did maintain contact from the time of poker games at the old frat house thru his supervision and installation of all the plumbing during my home construction . Wayne had the ability , unlike anyone I have ever met , to bring humor to any situation and I like so many other friends am truly saddened by his death. God bless him and let us all cherish his memory.

My dear best friend Wayne, you will always be in our memories. You have been with me since I was five and with my wife and sons for all of our marriage. Marlene adored you and my sons Adam & Alex regarded you as an uncle. You'll continue to be at our future gathering with friends as the wild crazy guy that made us all laugh and as the kind caring one that always had time to help when called upon. Life won't quite be the same without you. Words can't express my true feelings other than I'll miss you very, very much. May God bless you. AL, Marlene , Adam & Alex
