    I hope this message gets thru this time without a computer glitch. It was a pleasure to have known Wayne over the years.He had a “Get up and get it done attitude” that was always with him. He did get alot of things done like the building of multiple houses. I visited a site he was working on and was amazed at what he could do just on the telephone talking to material suppliers and getting the delivery dates such there would be no helpers standing around with nothing to do . He has been missed since he moved away. He will be remembered.
