Wayne worked for many years for the Village of Combined Locks until his retirement. He enjoyed spending time outdoors soaking up the sun, hunting, fishing and being up north. Wayne had a collection of ducks that he was most proud of. He loved animals, especially his dogs and cats. Wayne had a great sense of humor, and his laugh could always light up a room. He was generous and would give you the shirt off his back.
