  5. I was so sad to read about Waynes passing. Wayne was a gem and so full of life! He always had positive things to say and stories from the heart! Nothing was about Wayne, it was always about the person he was talking to. When anyone was down and out, Wayne would always make sure that person was either smiling when they parted or knew he was thinking of them. He had a heart of gold and will truly be missed~♥️

  7. A good guy, he was funny, and could always make you smile and laugh. He had a heart of gold, and truly cared.
    He loved his family very much, and that love will always be there. He will be missed, but not forgotten.

  8. I have known Wayne for many years. but as happens to a lot of us, we lost track of each over the years.
    Whenever I think of Wayne, I remember him as a happy guy, in love with Joan and happy with the life he and Joan had together. When I think of Wayne, I remember a kind and good man.
    Even though I have not talked with Wayne for many years, I will miss him, and I grieve for his family

  9. To Joan, Nathan, Nicole & all of Wayne’s Family: We’ve been in self quarantine and just learned today of Wayne’s passing last month. We just wanted to express our belated but sincere sympathies to you all. Wayne was “one of the good guys” and I will certainly miss his occasional phone calls and visits here at our home. We hope the entire family is doing well.

  10. A little over a year and I now know you are gone. My ♥️ Aches. You Wayne Block have left me so many happy, fun, loving memories. If I had only known.
    Miss you brother. See you soon.
