Wayne lived his life with a unique perspective, living on his own terms. He was a proud grandfather (Papa). He loved to be fishing and had a passion for creating fly fishing flies. He enjoyed playing his guitars, listening to blues music and his amazing record collection. Wayne was very proud of his garden and generously shared his produce with family and friends.
