Wayne was a loving Dad and Grandpa. There was not an event his children or grandchildren did that he would miss. He was a proud Dad and Grandpa and let everyone know it. The most joyous thing in Wayne’s life was to fish and hunt with his family. No matter what kind of season the Dallas Cowboys were having, he was their number one fan (he always had faith in them). Wayne was fond of gardening and farming the land he loved. He would sit and watch his sheep in the pastures with delight. He was named after John Wayne and had to of had all his moves memorized by heart. Wayne could watch rodeos and bull riding events all day long. He retired from SMI after 24 years and had so many stories he told of his time there.
At this time, there will be no services. A Memorial will take place at a later date and his ashes will be spread on his land and where he loved to hunt with his family.
