Wayne worked for Archie’s Junk Yard and later for American Tent, both for over twenty years each until he had to go on disability.  He played the guitar and loved old records and music.  He was a talented mechanic and enjoyed working on cars and motorcycles; he loved riding his Harley when he was still able.  Wayne was a devoted husband, father, grandfather and friend; he loved kids and old cars.  He had a great sense of humor, was outgoing, could be goofy at times and loved to embarrass his wife Jo Ann.  He will be missed by family and friends.
