    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.

    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
