Wayne was a wonderful person and a lot of fun to be around. He was always horsing around or had a good story or joke to make you laugh.
Kept blaming me when he couldn't his 3 wood golfing - but then thanked me for selling it to him when he hit it good. Great razorback fan and friend.
See you on the other side someday again Wayne --------

I will always remember uncle Wayne with his Razorback hats and crazy jokes. Of all the nicknames we got as kids I will never forget the one he gave me and how excited I have always been to see him pull up to visit.
Love always,
