My deepest sympathy to you Joyce, Chris and Brian and families. I am thankful I have been in contact with Wayne for several years now via email, and thankful for our visit earlier this year. I know he is now at peace and free from cancer. Take care and stay in touch. Love Peggy and DonLee PS due to my surgery will not be able to come to the visitation or funeral but know I am there in my thoughts. Hugs to everyone.

Wayne was the local president the Postal Workers Union during much of my time as St.Cloud Postmaster. We sometimes had disagreements, as is natural for our professional roles. But Wayne was always an honorable leader and dedicated worker. There were so many times when we worked together to solve problems, and Always with the greatest mutual respect. I always trusted his advice and his knowledge about our operations. The employees of the St. Cloud Post Office were fortunate to have them as their labor representative, and I was honored to call him a friend.

Wayne and I were in the Work/Study program at Tech as Seniors in 1962. We worked the afternoon/night shift together at Lantz Lenscraft after school. Weekends we'd hang out with friends in and around St. Cloud. After graduation, we planned to enlist together in the Army. I ended up in the hospital with Mono and Wayne enlisted. Wish we had gone in together. I moved to Wisconsin the following year and unfortunately we lost touch with each other. Wayne was such a cool, neat guy and have many fond memories of our HS days. Rest In Peace old friend. Peace, comfort and prayers for Joyce and Wayne's family and friends.
