Wayne was a great Dad, a loving Pappy and enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren and his fur baby Gemma. He always liked hunting and fishing. He was a great meat cutter/butcher and knew how to cook in his kitchen. No one ever left his home hungry and he knew how to put a smile on everyone’s face.
