A lot of time was spent around the table with family and friends playing Rook, Dominos or the card game Baseball.

In his retirement Wayne spent time in his workshop creating barns, cupboards, fences, trucks, and many other items. These gifts, that are cherished memories, were given to children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, and many other friends.
