Wayne was a client at Friends Aware, and though that affiliation, he became a bagger at Martins. Wayne was very proud knowing that customers would go to the register he was at, because they liked the way he bagged their groceries, he was there from 1992-2014. While with Friends Aware, Wayne was awarded the Karen Marie Howell Helping Hand Award. Before he became sick, he enjoyed bowling and going to the Mall with his friend Tracy. But most of all Wayne loved being with family. Before Wayne went to Lions Center he was taken care of by his niece, Luann. She took him anywhere he wanted to go, but it was the drives to his home place that he truly loved.
Wayne was a member of Calvary Bible Church in Ellerslie.
