Wayne and I met talking on Hogville. Wasn't long before he invited my wife and I to their home. We drove up from Fort Worth and stayed the weekend and went to a Razorback game with them. Wayne and Connie immediately felt like family and someone I had know. For 20 years.

He was a genuine kind hearted soul and he will be missed by many. Connie Prayers to you and the family.

I have had the pleasure of working with Wayne on the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra project. His work was excellent and his attention to detail unmatched. My condolences go out to his entire family.

I worked with Wayne for nearly 40 and it was always a fun experience. I will remember Wayne as a person who cared about what he did but at the same time maintained a sense of humor. Wayne and I had just finished the Park Plaza project in Dallas. I will miss him. To his family, I hope God will provide his guidance and comfort during this difficult time.
