I will miss you. Thank you for all the awesome childhood memories. I’m so sorry for your loss Melissa and family.
Will miss you R.I.P. my friend.
Melissa I love you both and have for many years. My heart is heavy for your loss. Our friendship goes back many many years 30 ish or so. Many memories way to many to name them all. We had gone on camping trips, hunting trips, worked together at Stark for many years and so many more. I looked to Wayne with advise on lots of stuff to vehicle troubles and gun/ammo to just life troubles in general. Wayne was the type that told you straight up no beating around the bush just how it was. A true genius when it came to words I sure didn’t know or even knew existed. But all in all he didn’t talk about others and never told gossip that was what I liked. When I was sad to the point of no return he would send a post a funny post of animals or someone doing something so stupid you had to laugh. He pick up my spirits. That is what a true long time friend would do. Melissa I feel deep about you loss and know you will miss him and I know your heart will hurt but know God is there to help you through it all. Wayne did tell me he was saved in a conversation way back at Stark Mfg. as he told me to quit trying so hard to witness to him about Jesus. That my friend was the best conversations we had. I love you Wayne and you too Melissa. I’m down the road from you, holler and I’ll be there sweet sweet friend. Prayers!!!!
Miss you so much already. Prayers for all of your family. See ya later my friend.
I am so sorry for your loss. I went to school with Wayne he was always so kind.
Melissa sorry to hear of Wayne's passing. You and your family are in my prayers. Love you.
Wayne will be greatly missed by all who knew him. He was a bright spot on my FB page and I always looked forward to the great animal post's. I will greatly miss seeing them/him pop up. Prayers to you Melissa and family at this difficult time but hope you find some comfort in knowing how much he touched our lives.
Our daily conversations always ended the same way - " I'll see ya later." So until then, rest in peace my old friend.
Rest well my dear friend. You will always have a special place in my heart. Kenneth loved you so much. You left too soon. Love you dear brother in law.
