Wayne enjoyed playing baseball (shortstop 14). He had a love for cars, his favourite was his black corvettes. Most recently he seen riding his mountain bike around town. Weekly afternoons would find him at the local bars visiting with friends while he tested them with his quick wit he was known for.

He had very impressive home and garden skills which could be seen in his beautifully landscaped yard, tending his unique shrubs, flowers and his tasty garlic he would share with friends. He always had a home project on the go. Everything he did was with perfection.
