Bio:  Wayne was a longtime faithful Christian and member of Wesley Chapel United Methodist Church and loved all his church family. He was employed at Fayette Grain and Feed for many years and then was manager of Fayette Farmers Co-op for twenty years. Wayne was a “people person” and always enjoyed talking with people and helping them any way he could. He met everyone with a smile and had a happy disposition. Wayne retired in 2000 and spent his later years working on his cattle farm and attending events involving his grandchildren and great grandchildren, whom he loved dearly.

Wayne and Linda loved to travel and spent many happy hours on road trips to see natural wonders of our country. They enjoyed hiking in our National Parks, especially to waterfalls. After Wayne became disabled, they began a quest of finding and photographing covered bridges and had some amazing adventures, amassing a total of four hundred twenty-six covered bridges in many different states. Wayne’s greatest love was his family and he was happiest when he was in the midst of all of them. He was a wonderful husband, Daddy, and Granddaddy, who left a great legacy to all his family and many friends.
