Wayne was a proud marine where he served as a tank commander. After the military he worked in sales throughout his whole career, retiring from Scovell Sales Associates in 2019. In retirement he continued to serve his community where he supported local blood drives (Gallon+ Club) and volunteered at the local hospital. Wayne was a devoted Catholic and a life member of the Knights of Columbus. He was as dedicated to animals as he was to people.
