  • Wayne and I went to school together in Yakima my sister BonnieJo was in his class. We both got identical 1956 Oldsmobiles in Richland and had many great times together, along with Forrest. His idol was Bill Pearl, a weightlifter and Wayne followed after him. I will miss him..he was a great friend.

  • WAYNE WAS MY FRIEND FOR MORE THAN 50 YEARS AND IN ALL THAT TIME WE NEVER SPOKE A CROSS WORD. HE WAS A GENTLE PERSON WHO ENJOYED OTHER PEOPLE AND LIKE TO TELL SHORT JOKE STORIES. OVER THE YEARS WE ENJOYED PLAYING PING PONG, BADMINTON, HORSESHOES, BOWLING AND WATERSKIING AND A HOST OF OTHER GAMES. WAYNE WAS DEDICATED TO MAINTAINING HIS PHYSICAL CONDITION.

    I WILL MISS MY FRIEND WAYNE OR “WW” AS HE WAS KNOWN BY MOST.
