Wayne was a leader in every aspect of his life. He had a quiet strength about him. His presence was comforting. His confidence was calming. He was such a wise man with a unquenchable thirst for knowledge. His experiences in life taught him that nothing meant more than family. He often used those experiences to teach invaluable lessons to his children and grandchildren. He accepted people as they were.
