Extract from his guestbook:
- “I had the pleasure of meeting him at work many years ago. He had one of the sharpest self-assurance minds I have encountered in my career. His unparalleled professionalism was unmatched. He still looked the part, immaculately dressed and with a smile. I missed seeing him after he retired, but wished him luck. He was definitely one of a kind.
– Linda Clausen Gorka
- “Wayne and I have worked together at PNI for many years. I had the honor to call him my mentor and friend. He was really one of the good guys.
–Nancy and David Mills
- “I feel blessed to have known Wayne and to have been a part of his life. I met Wayne through mutual friends about 20 years ago. Over the past 10 years, Wayne and I have shared countless dinners and conversations; some in downtown restaurants, others at his or my home. We often played cards, dice or board games together before going out. (Yes – I taught Wayne the games and he taught me fashion and style – or at least we both gave it a try.) Whenever we were together we were sure to share good laughs. He left far too early and I miss him very much. Goodbye my friend. Rest in peace.”
- “I worked with Wayne at Penn National Insurance. He was a great guy, very professional, always smiling, just a pleasure to work with! He was happy to be able to retire and I’m glad he had a few years to take advantage of it.
– Karen Young
- “I have worked with Wayne for many years. He was highly respected and extremely professional in all his dealings. What I will remember most about Wayne is our friendship. He had a good heart and had a real zest for life. The skies above have a little more flair now that Wayne is there. Thanks for the good memories, my friend.
– Scott Maier
