Wayne was one usher I could always count on. Not did he show for the months he was scheduled but he also filled in when needed. He was out a while, then came back as he could. Always doing what he could, when he could. He will be missed at First English Lutheran Church. God be with the family. Sandra Prinzing

I worked with Wayne for several years at Viratec. He was always eager to lend a helping hand when needed and was a person I looked forward to working with - always had a smile. I wish to extend my deepest sympathy to all of his family. I know you will miss him but I know you have millions of memories to bring you strength at this time
