Wayne was an avid bowler throughout his life, but something he loved even more was spending time with his friends and his loving wife. In his spare time, he would create ornate works of art from wood, such as cars or grandfather clocks. Yet, the most important aspect of his life was family. Whether tossing a lure or a horseshoe, going to camp or cook out, or even just putting ice down your back, Wayne was always spending time with those he loved.
