Sue, so sorry to hear of Wayne's passing. It has been too many years since we last saw each other.
Myself Rory and all of us other Canadians, Larry (unfortunately deceased), David, Ken, Lisa, Tony, Stacy, Brian and quite a few others appreciate yours and Wayne's hospitality during our visits to NC for the races during the 90's very much.

You were very accommodating to us and although it has been many years we all will remember you both fondly.

RIP: Wayne, love you man!

Wayne will be missed by all and we will miss his smile and all the jokes and stories. Wayne’s positive outlook was always encouraging. Sorry he never made it down to flounder gig with Ken and that we’ll not have anymore of his catfish. Praying for comfort through all the sweet and funny memories for the family.

I was very saddened to hear of the passing of Wayne. When my son, Patrick, now 30, was around two years old we lived next-door to Wayne and Sue. My son could not pronounce Sue so he called her soup. So he would say he wanted to go see Wayne and soup. My thoughts and prayers go out to you and the family and I know GodHas welcomed him to his kingdom. I cherish the memories I had with Wayne.

I'm sad to here that Wayne had passed he was a very talented man and fun to be around with him cutting up and just living live to it's fullest. I was layed off from work about 10 years ago and started going over to his shop and helping him do his catfish business we would have a ball out there in his shop with him cutting up and telling stories and some of them stories would include his Buddy Johnny Purser now them was funny.
