    For those of you who knew Wayne will know what i'm talking about when I say you will never meet another amazing, brilliant, loving, compassionate person about his family and his friends. I know this because Wayne came into my life back in 1988 when I met him through his son Steven. He has always been a good Father for his children and we all know he loved the game of bowling. i give my deepest condolences to family and friends, he truly will be missed. Wayne will always have a special place in my heart.

    As with many, many others, I knew Wayne from bowling. He was always polite, courteous, and friendly to me and comported himself professionally on the lanes whenever we bowled together. Wayne was an interesting man to talk with and whenever we crossed paths always had a smile to share. Condolences to all of you during this sad time. He will be missed.
