Wayne's life was a tapestry woven with diverse passions. An avid fisherman, collector, and marksman, he found joy in simple pleasures such as bird watching and feeding ducks by the pond.

Wayne dedicated an impressive 42 years of hard work and dedication to Firestone, earning a reputation for the best work ethic among those who knew him.
