    Dear Calla and family,

    We were so sorry to hear of Wayne’s passing.  You guys were great neighbors and Wayne was a great guy.  I remember when he even volunteered to paint a 3-pt line on our shared driveway for DC!  

    Dave recalls how well-respected he was as the JD foundry manager.  I remember how helpful he was allowing the Jr League to practice for the Follies at Northstar.  Just a super nice guy!
