I only met Wayne a few times, but he was always concerned about the comfort of others even though he was battling cancer. What remains in my thoughts are how loved he was by all his family. That's a true testimony of his life and character.

Wayne was a good friend to my brothers when we were growing up in SWP. I remember him as a good kid. It's very sad to hear of his passing from cancer at such a young age. Cianci and Stump families, I'm so sorry for your loss.
