Wayne worked many, many jobs in his life. But the main one that he cherished the most, beside being a dad, he played the piano for “The Singing Nippers for over 20 years. He also was a Bus driver, Tour Bus driver and a Taxi driver. He also worked in several restaurants. He had so many W-2 forms that his dad refused to do his taxes! He was on the High School Tennis team, he was rated #2 in the state of VA. He loves watching the Washington Redskins play football. His favorite holiday was Christmas. He would decorate his house from top to bottom in every room and he collected Santa Clauses. Wayne enjoyed life, he played the piano for Elliston Church of God until last fall. He was truly anointed to play the piano. He was always being silly and funny. He could make you laugh with his funny faces and funny sounds especially sounding like a horse!I
