Wayne’s world was one filled with love and laughter. He loved spending time with his family and friends. Wayne enjoyed hunting, fishing, Sunday walks, playing cards and gardening. On holiday weekends during the summer he could be found counting cars, as they passed by, from the front porch of the family’s home on Route 100. He started every day with a cup, or multiple cups, of coffee. However, Pepsi was his go to drink from lunch time on. Even with all that caffeine he was a master at taking a cat nap!
