I knew Wayne way back in High School and got reaquainted with him when I worked with the SABER contractor at Eustis. He always had that grin like he was up to something (which he usually was). He was fair and square to work with. Thoughts and prayers go out to his family. RIP Wayne..............

Mr. Wayne will be missed. He made me laugh all the time. I enjoy coming to work, so he can talk about the different hair style I wore. My prayers goes out to his family.

Wayne was a stalwart part of my day these past five and a half years. Always with a smile or a fist bump or a hug or a smart ass remark. He would always offer a helping hand or a joke or a comforting word. He loved it when I would bring my son Grayson by, he really enjoyed making him laugh. Coming to work without Wayne is not the same and it never will be. I am thankful for the time we worked together and that we got to know each other. I definitely don't take it for granted.

Wayne was a very special person. He had the ability to make anyone smile with his wise cracks and jovial nature. He was always willing to help in any situation and was not bashful about speaking his mind. You will be missed my friend!

I had the pleasure of working with Wayne at Eustis for 9+ years. Even on bad days Wayne always had a kind word or one of his famous hugs and a huge smile. His joy was contagious. I will miss you my friend. My thoughts go out to friends and family♥️

Wayne was a very special person and one of my most cherished friends. I worked with him for 40 years and always looked forward to him showing up at my desk with something funny to say. He had a heart of gold and always thought of others before himself. Will miss hearing you call me "Goofy"... I will never forget you my friend.

I worked with Wayne for 30years at Fort Eustis.He is laughing at me because I don't know what to say but this is a big shock for a whole bunch of people who were close friends or anyone who knew him. Wayne had a way of picking you up when you were down and making you forget your troubles. He was always there to help anyone that needed it and did so with a smile. I considered Wayne one of my best friends a many a story have been shared and lots of laughs and a few tears. It was a honor to call you my brother. I will miss you my friend but because of all the memories you will not be forgotten.
To the family I offer my condolences and to his circle of friends I send hugs and handshakes. Rest in peace Wayne. You were the person lots of people strive to be.

I supervised Wayne for the last 9 years and everyone loved Wayne at work. His quick smile, sense of humor and willingness to help others made him a joy to work with. We will miss him greatly and I know I’ll think of him everyday. Wayne’s shining star now shines in a higher place. Life was a little brighter with Wayne in it. From his work family, our condolences and prayers go out to him family, may God bless you all.

I only met Wayne this past season during bowling. He always had a smile on his face, especially when he was beating our team at bowling. LOL!! He always made it a point to speak to me as soon as I showed up to the center and asked how Sarah, my girlfriend who bowled with him, and I were doing. And if he didn't see me before we started I made it a point to go speak to him. His team bowled next to mine the last night of league during the 2nd Chance Tourney. And as always he was smiling, throwing strikes and picking up splits to convert spares!! You will be missed Wayne!! Throw plenty of strikes up there and keep the smile on your face!!!
