    Tony and Tim I'm truly sorry the loss of your Dad.
    We all have wonderful great memories of him and as a family ones I will cherish a life time. Some I remember yall coming to Florida and us going to the beach and him getting burnt and his poor bald head being so burnt we could not keep him off that beach. Spending time at Mike and Barbara's on the lake and oh Boy if that Lake could talk. Uncle Wayne talking me into driving them all to the Desperado Club at (15yrsold) so he could dance he loved to dance and was a great dancer. I could go on forever with all the fun we had a kids growing up with the best parents ever. Now there all dancing in Heaven watching over all of us. I Love ❤️ you Tony and Tim and miss yall so much. 😢 FLY HIGH UNCLE WAYNE ❤️ you so much and gonna miss you.

    Mike, Tim and Tony:

    I am so sorry for your loss. Wayne was a wonderful man, and I have many fond memories of him, the Brenda's, and of all the "Adams" family from my growing up years, and on. I always loved seeing Wayne, he was so funny. One memory that sticks in my mind is him coming to the "Store" in Jerome, dressed up as Santa Claus, full red suit, beard and all. He was hilarious, and he enjoyed life so much. He sold me the first and only house I every owned, and when I moved, he bought it back again, and hauled it away. Whether I saw him in Jerome, or Monticello, he was always glad to see me, just like I was him. I know for a fact that he loved his family, and they meant the world to him. I also know that wherever he is now, he is bringing love and laughter to all around him. He always did for me. I know I will not forget him as long as I live. My heart and sympathy is with you all.

    Much love and sincerest condolences,

    Beverly Cokley
