He was an active member of the Church of the Nazarene and served on the Church Board, ushered, served as the Sunday School Treasurer for 35 years, and received the Second Mile Award. Wayne graduated from Elkins High School (class of 1944) and enjoyed monthly breakfasts with local classmate graduates for many years. He always remained a fan of the Tigers, be it the Elkins Tigers or the Detroit Tigers. He loved watching baseball and kept up with all the records and stats. Wayne worked at the Minute Market which later became Harrold’s Key Market for 30 ½ years and then for the Crystal Key Market for 1 ½ years. He then went to work for the WV Department of Highways Weight Enforcement for 16 years and retired on December 31, 1988. He was in the first graduating class for Weight Enforcement officers at the WV State Police Academy in July 1982. He ran the Weigh Station at Crystal Springs until his retirement. Wayne was a member of the Randolph County Senior Center. He enjoyed going to the YMCA beginning in 1989 for a senior exercise class in the pool 3 times per week and enjoyed the good fellowship that he found there. He said that was one reason that kept him going. In 2008, Wayne was privileged to see his granddaughter; Kimberly Cover crowned Queen Silvia of the Mountain State Forest Festival. Wayne was a prayer warrior and prayed for his entire family, by name, each night. Wayne loved his family and attended the wedding of every child and grandchild and had many framed photographs of the weddings displayed in his home. He treated all of his children’s spouses as if they were his very own children. He loved all his grandchildren and great grandchildren and made an effort to travel and see each of them and hold them. He also showed great affection for Tyler Hamrick who was part of his Nazarene Church family. All the words that could be used to describe Wayne, including, but not limited to, thoughtful, supportive, dependable, a man of integrity, encouraging, loving, full of kindness, and faithful, are words that display his true worth and highest qualities that were thoroughly appreciated by his family.
