    I have known Wayne for years. We were in school together. He was always a character always laughing and happy. I am so sorry for your loss. I pray God will comfort you during this difficult time.

    After I joined the National Guard, Wayne was one of the first people to extend his hand and make me feel welcome. Always a friendly word and always cutting a joke. You have my deepest sympathy for your loss. He was a good man.

    Jewel, Harrison, John and family
    We are said to hear of Wayne’s death. He is family to us.
    Jewel- Back in the ’80s you and Wayne gave me a Christmas present that I still have today, but thankfully don’t have to use as much – A Set of Jumper Cables. I know Wayne picked that out for me.
    Remembering good times.
    Angie, Dave and Mom Duke
