Mr. Wayne was a great man and role model for all. He loved being in the National Guard with my dad (Charles F. Wacker, Jr.) and always had a smile for us. I remember looking for him driving a jeep in all the Mardi Gras parades of years past. May God bless your family as you grieve the loss of your dad.

Dear Sweet Uncle Wayne, You will be missed so much. God has taken you into his family and he has an antique car just for you to have in heaven. I'm happy you will get to be with papaw and mamaw too. I love you, Tammy

Our sincere condolences to the family of Wayne Hightower. We were next door neighbors in the eighties and thought the world of Wayne and the girls. So sorry.

Wayne was a friend from long ago in the early years of Quail Run Subdivision. We enjoyed eating many a meal with Wayne and even deheading pounds of fresh caught shrimp along with other friends Paulette & Tommy Wms. With prayers of comfort for his family, we are Pat & Archie Moore
