He was a Devoted Husband, Beloved Father, Grandfather, Brother and loyal servant left this Earth to go home to the Lord on May 8th 2020. Wayne dedicated his life in service to others, whether that be to his nation as a soldier, a mentor within this congregation or most importantly to his wife, children and extended family. Wayne an avid Chicago Cubs and Chicago Bears fan would hardly miss a game, often recording them to watch them later. He has since adopted a new love for Alabama football, often heard yelling “Roll Tide”! He also enjoyed karaoke, his love for singing could often be heard every Sunday in Church.
Wayne served his country for 23 years in the US Army, deploying 3 times to Iraq during Operation Iraqi Freedom and retiring with meritorious service as a Master Sargent (E-8). After each deployment a new four legged friend would join the family. Killer, Sammie, Mickey, Wrigley, Payton, Abigail (AKA Pup Pup) and I’m sure they are missing him as much as all of us. We do not know the plan the Lord has for us, but Wayne has been drafted into service once again to be by the Lords side. He will be forever loved and fondly remembered until the day each of us meets him again.
