My regrets to Wayne's family and friends.  He and I were friends through high school, and he roomed with me for a year at U-Conn.  We were both in the wedding party of our mutual friend, Denzel Andrews.  Our second daughter is named Dana, which my wife got from his daughter Dana (Marie). While we did not see each other much after the U-Conn days, Denzel and I have many fond memories of our high-school years.  Always sad to see old friends pass on.

Very sorry to hear for Wayne's passing. My sincere condolences to Wayne's entire family.  I went to Fitch Sr High and graduated with Wayne.  Always a gentleman and soft spoken.  We grew out of touch when we both moved from Connecticut. and finally got back in touch through Facebook.. RIP friend.

Nancy and I offer our sincere condolences to Wayne’s family. May God be with you and provide you with strength and love in your loss.

As a co-worker at KAPL, it was a pleasure to see Wayne earn the respect and admiration from his fellow workers for his technical expertise, professionalism, extreme work ethics and principles.

I will always remember Wayne as a valuable member of our group and as my friend through the years.

May God bless you,

Jack and Nancy Kozlowich

I knew Wayne through work and golf. Wayne and I played golf each Thursday and then had dinner, and he was a strong Boston Red Sox fan. Our foursome was made up of three Yankees fans and Wayne and there was almost a lot of back and forth over the teams. I will hold the memories of wayne for ever. Ed Bordeau
