Wayne was a graduate of Greater Johnstown High School and a previous employee of Sears, as well as, most recently, The Americans Red Cross, where he worked as a blood donation recruiter. Wayne was a member of the Tremont Club. His two greatest loves in life was music, particularly writing and playing music on his guitar, and his 4 grandchildren. "Pappy" was always creating silly songs and jokes for the kids and he knew how to put a smile on their faces and brighten their day. He will be sadly missed by all who knew him.
