    Wayne was a very nice man. VERY Skilled with his mind and hands. His HO Model of the High-Line Bridge at the Barnes County Museum has been enjoyed by thousands of people over the years. His help with my 1901 Oldsmobile was sincerely appreciated. He will be missed. My, and the Barnes County Historical Society’s, condolences to Loraine and the family on his passing.
