My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. Wayne could always make me smile at a tractor pull. I will miss his smile and his wheelhorse tractor.

Diane, Melissa and Brian. I am so sorry to hear about Wayne. Growing up at the Country Kitchen, Wayne was part of our family. His laugh was infectious and so much fun to work with. I miss those days and will always remember him cooking with my mom. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

I was sorry to read of Wayne’s passing. I have fond memories of his time caring for Ferrisburgh Central School.He was always ready to talk and help with the many tasks that kept the school rolling along. We enjoyed his grilling skills at the end of the year picnics and his hearty laugh. My sympathies to Wayne’s family.

Rest in peace, Wayne. Fond remembrances of your dedication to the children, staff and community of Ferrisburgh Central School and the good talks we shared in the quiet of the evening after everyone else went home. Yes, your infectious laugh will definitely be missed.
