Wayne’s life was enriched by friends and staff while he attended “Just Family” in Liberty for eighteen years. Wayne’s integrity and work ethics were apparent daily in his perfectionism world.

As he closed his eyes to rest in peace, we were able to remind Wayne how much we loved him. We are so glad God chose us to be his family.

He is survived by three sisters, Beverly (Winford) Blair of Columbia, Lisa (T.Y.) Fisher of Danville, and Tammy (Steve) Dunn of Lexington; a brother, Brent (Melody) Raney of Nancy; five nephews, four nieces, eight great-nieces, five great-nephews, and one great-great nephew.
