They also enjoyed going for rides on their side by side. Wayne’s most favorite past time was spending time with and picking on his grandkids. Wayne will always be remembered by his willingness to lend a helping hand, fixing something, or at least telling you how to fix it. His quick-witted comments kept us all on our toes.
