He was a longtime member of Pleasant Garden Baptist Church, and also served as an evangelist in the community.
Wayne’s love of God, life, and family was evident to all who knew and loved him. He had many passions, including car restoration, and was proud of his son, Josh’s collision repair business. He also had immense pride in his son, Bradley’s, service to our country in the U.S. Coast Guard. Wayne loved playing the guitar and harmonica, traveling with his wife, enjoying family gatherings, and time with his dogs, Lucy and Kadie. One of the great joys of his life was time spent with his grandchildren, teaching them about cars, playing school and princess, and being a fun Poppy.
