We were very saddened to learn of Wayne's passing. We are sorry for your loss. Wayne helped in bringing us here from California. He built the house we bought from him 18 years ago. He was an excellent craftsman. The shed on our property is still standing that he built when he was a teenager.

To Wayne's kids....I knew your Dad back in the wild and crazy 70s. Yes, he was wild and crazy, but he was such a good guy. His heart was huge. I am sorry that I lost touch with him over the years, and very sorry to you for the loss of your Dad.
