I was sad to learn of Wayne's passing, but trust that he is now free of all pain and with the Lord. Wayne was one of my nicest bosses in my more than 20 years with NRC Region III. He cared about the people he managed, and always had a kind word or a joke to tell. All of my memories about him are good memories.

My heartfelt condolences is extended to Wayne's family and friends. I had the esteem pleasure of working with Wayne, when he was a Section Chief in DRP, Region III. He was a fine man, and I enjoyed working with him. He was fair, and had a terrific sense of human. I know he will be missed! I will continue to uplift the family in prayer. Take care, and God Bless!

My sincere condolances to family. It was a pleasure to have known & worked with Wayne during my assignment to the PAT from RI. He indeed was a superior type of person & will be missed by all of us. My late wife Charlene was equally impressed. He would want all of us to continue doing good as he did. Take care. GN
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Mrs. Shafer, My prayers go out to you and your family during this time. I worked for Wayne at the NRC in the 1990s time period. It was nice working with him.

I knew Wayne and brother Leo from Lake Farm Home. Wayne was always a gentleman and he and others walked me home from the bus stop from downtown Kalamazoo one time. I lived in Oakwood with our single mom and worked at Walgreens. I remember his book being written up in the Gazette but regretfully never got to the signing. I am just a few months older and lost 2 younger brothers. Life is precious. My prayers and thoughts are with you and all family members.

Wayne mentored me from the day I started in the NRC until just before he passed. He was a most honorable man and I will miss his counsel. God grant you comfort at this really difficult time.
