Wayne was one of the good ones. He had a heart of gold and a ready smile for all. He will be sorely missed by his friends and family. We were fortunate enough to be neighbors with Wayne and his family for many years and to be able to follow him in his early racing career. Heaven has indeed received a new angel. To his family, we extend our heartfelt condolences and our prayers. RIP, Wayne – BTTW!!
