I grew up with Wayne on 'Champions Hill' on Siloam Rd. in the 1950's and remained friends with him into our adult lives. He was a 'genuine person', you always knew what he intended and what he did was what he thought was right at the time. I valued that friendship and am very sorry that I didn't get to visit with him last year in Siloam when I saw Jimmy....... God Bless all the family.....
