Wayne was a fine gentleman who enjoyed life. It was a pleasure having him and his son Byron tend our family farm and I enjoyed our conversations. He is in God's hands now and may his soul rest in peace.

I didn't know Wayne well, but it didn't really matter because whenever I ran into him he'd talk with to me like we've known each other forever. He always had a smile and story to tell. He came over to the house some time back and sat on the porch with our whole family and he just had us all laughing with his stories. You'd never have known he wasn't feeling well. That's a memory I know we all we will all always remember.
