    We just found out Wayne has truly gone home.

    I had the opportunity to work along side Wayne at Fair Acres in Materials Management.

    I speak for myself, Materials Management and all those at Fair Acres who were fortunate to have known Wayne. He was a selfless person who always was there to give a helping hand. Wayne was Santa Clause for all the residents and brought smiles to them for many years. He enjoyed playing Santa and I have to admit he was awesome. Wayne also gave back with helping the TAS Department with their annual proms for the residents. Wayne was great with the residents making sure all were participating in the festivities.

    Wayne was a devoted family man to his Mom, his children and sister Holly. He was always talking about them to us in Materials Management. We loved Wayne and his spirit will forever live in our hearts.

    Holly, Mary Ellen, Mark and Family – I’m so sorry for your loss. I remember looking at old pictures of Stevie when I was young. I can still see a particular picture in my memory of Carol, Jimmy, Stevie, Wayne and I think Holly was in the photo too. It may have been around Christmas time. My heart goes out to you all. May Wayne’s memory be a blessing.
