I knew Wayne my whole life, he and my dad were really good friends. He was a very kind and gentle man. He would have done anything he could for anyone. Wayne will be sadly missed by a lot of people. May he finally rest in peace.

I only met Wayne Sr. once at my mothers service in 2003. He seemed like a very nice man. My brother and sisters have always said nice things about their Father and Step Father. He was always good to his family and my mother Mildred Bennett. May he rest in Peace and all of his family realize that he will no longer suffer. I want my sisters and brother to know that I love them very much and that I am there for them. Love from AZ
