I met Wayne when I was trucking for Whitey Patton and on to Acme Trucking it was a pleasure working with him. I would see Wayne when once in a while at the post office. Our condolences to the Jennings family may he rest in peace. From Mr. & Mrs. John Martinez

Sincere condolences to all of Wayne's family and friends! Wayne was a very loving and special man. Not only was he part of our family for a short time back in the 60's but then moved a mobile home for me in the late 70's. He loved animals, sharing in fun times playing games with us kids outside, and holiday meals. His good heart, deeds, love and laughter has earned him a very special place in Heaven.
