So saddened to learn of Wayne's passing.  We were good friends growing up but went seperate ways after high school.  Wayne was an excellent boxer, tougher than nails and no quit in him.  I can remember some pretty good battles between him and Roger Rue; probably just bad memory but it seemed he was frequely sporting a broken nose. He had a sheepish smile and was so likeable.  I am so thankful that I knew him and that he was my friend.

Rest in Peace dear friend!

Pam, Sue and I were very saddened to hear that Wayne is no longer with us.  Though we haven't seen you guys in years, friends never forget.   I still have fond memories.  WWT , Paul Shires and I spent much time together, playing softball, racing pigeons (I didn't race, they did), going to dances and partying. Some of those times are not available to memory, others told us about how much fun we had.  WWT, as we called him,  was a very loyal friend and would share his last bit of anything with you.  Larry was right about WWTs' ability with /without the gloves.  A great man, friend and good guy,   RIP WWT.
