Wayne, as we all knew him by, was, is and will always be a Hero to us.
He didn't join the National Guard till he was 38. All six of our
children were grown and gone, and it was time for him to live his
greatest dream...to become a soldier. He joined the National Guard in
2005. Deployed for the 1st time in 2007 to Iraq and then again to
Afghanistan in 2009. He died 60 days before is was to return home for
good. He loved our life. As of today, we are expecting our 14th
grandchild. He loved our family, military life, camping, fishing,
country music, traveling & his job. Wayne was the glue of this
family...we love & miss him so much.
