Wayne was a hard working guy, who enjoyed his time with his family.  He took pride in the restoration of his classic muscle cars, putting together model cars, and tinkering in his garage.  Wayne loved ice racing, snowmobiling and playing pool.  He loved his best friend Sal Gianffrido and his cruise nights were he would take his Shelby.
