Wayne loved all animals especially his four dogs, Liza Jane, Bleu Bell, Daizee May and Barney Fife. He adored his nine grandchildren and loved “pulling their legs” and yacking with them on text messages. He referred to them as his flock of “weedos”. He enjoyed taking them fishing down at his pond on his property or playing with them as youngsters in his pool. Wayne loved his family and friends and really enjoyed clowning around with everyone. Wayne had a phrase that had a lot of meaning and always reminded the grandchildren to, “Endeavor to Persevere”. He was a loving and caring husband, Dad, Pop, brother and friend who will be greatly missed. Wayne’s service will be Tuesday, July 16th at 11 am at Abbey Funeral Home, 4037 N.
