When he wasn’t working he loved playing golf and spending time with his grandson Joseph. Wayne loved his pool and his bonfires. He loved his Friday lunch group with Gene, Dicky, Jerry and Scott. Wayne was dedicated to the Marathon Gas Station on Matthews Weddington Road where he had breakfast with his friends, Bob, Henry, Perry, Dave, John, Randy, Jack, Jerry, Johnny, Jimmy, Ben, Nilesh, Larry, Mike and Dotta every day rain or shine.
