Our sincerest condolences to the entire family upon Wayne’s passing. Praying for comfort, strength and encouragement as you face upcoming days.
I knew Wayne in grade school in Riley, and I am surprised to stumble onto this information regarding his death last fall. I am so sorry that such a lovely person whom I knew in my childhood has passed on. Wayne was very quiet in school, but always had a ready grin for everyone. I did not know all of his siblings, but I do remember Debbie, and I want the family to know that I feel for them in the loss of their brother.
