Wayne was a gifted and talented individual with a love for music and outdoor activities. His first love was being in the outdoors and competing in bass tournaments.

In his early years during the fledgling birth of rock and roll he was a member of a local band known as the Royals and their first recording was the fast paced song called ''Thunder Wagon''. His talent for playing musical instruments personified his skill and love with the keyboard being his favorite, his love of music enabled him to pass along to his children and grandkids his playing prowess.

His career at Hanford included working for such companies as Battelle, McDonald Douglas, Exxon and Westinghouse Hanford Company. Thru his many years of work at the Hanford Site, he developed many lasting friendships. He retired from Westinghouse Hanford in 1994.
