He loved working with his hands whether it be building his home to working on engines. He was always willing to help anyone who asked. He enjoyed traveling with his wife Connie and kids across the United States. Wayne enjoyed farming, gardening, hunting, and fishing. He would smile the biggest smile even for a small fish. He enjoyed quail hunting when you could find them or rabbits.


Wayne enjoyed visiting with people he would strike up a conversation about anyone he would talk your ear off. Wayne enjoyed spending time with his eleven grandchildren Robert, Amanda, Andrea, Autumn, Steven, Ricky, Leonard, Nathanial, Dalton, Kayla, and Logan. They brough the biggest smile to his face.
