I have great memories of Wayne showing me all of the helicopters that we worked with when I was young. Diane and I have always appreciated his humor and generosity of spirit. Our condolences and thoughts are with his family.

Wayne, you will be missed by many. You were always so kind, always thinking of others. I will never forget our special time in 2007 when we had a chance to really talk and get to know each other. May you walk in peace now. We love you auntie Alice! You are in our thoughts and prayers....know Wayne is now at rest and watching over you with his love.

I am grateful to have called Wayne my friend for many years. I had an opportunity to work with him on a few projects, and I swear you could see his brilliant mind working. He inspired many people over the years, and he was admired. Tony and I express our sincere condolences and send love to his family and friends. We will miss Wayne.
