A friendly guy, always w/a nice word.  Look at some of his interviews as CMO and you see the boy in the man.

So sad to hear of Wayne's passing. I'm glad I got to see him at our reunion and talk awhile. He was a very special guy and I have many fond memories of him in high school. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.

I remember Wayne with a big smile on his face.  He was always outgoing (in a modest way), and it was such a pleasure to be in his company. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.

Wayne was always smiling & made everyone feel at ease just being around him.  He was a friend to everyone.  He will truly be missed by all who knew him.  My thoughts & prayers are with his family.

Wayne was such a wonderful, personable fellow. I always admired him greatly. When my dad had the greyhound travel coach, we invited Wayne to come with us to Atlantic City for the WV Liberty Bowl Game. He played the quitar along the way and we sang and had a most wonderful time. Thank you, dear Wayne. God bless you forever! See you up there someday!

Though Wayne moved out of state he never forgot his roots and his classmates.  He came to all of our class reunions. His interest in others, his kindness, and his smile will be remembered. Many were unaware that at our 50th he knew his diagnosis; he did not broadcast it as he felt it would draw too much attention to himself. We can all be proud of his accomplishments.  He will be missed. Prayers for his family, friends, and all whose lives he touched.

I first know Wayne from first grade at Zogg O'Dell and last saw him at our 50th reunion.  I regret that he and I didn't get more time to visit.

Though we weren't close as friends, we nonetheless had much fun rehearsing and performing Buddy Holly songs for the talent show in spring '63.  To that end, Wayne (in chorus) joined Frank Hartwell (who sang for Buddy), Larry Winter (guitar) and me (piano), After one of the rehearsals at my house, the four of us stayed up BS-ing until 5 AM.  Oh the days!

He was most certainly a cool dude.  I'm glad for those experiences he and I had together.
