I'm deeply saddened by the loss of my Biker Brother & Fellow Peace Officer. He was a great Friend and I always looked forward to our motorcycle rides & Veterans Day events we went to. Prayers to Kathy & Family.

My family met Wayne when we moved to Reading Center and he did electrical work for my parents. He and my dad, Sal, bonded over their military memories. Wayne was a wonderful man with a hearty laugh. So sad to read of his passing. My heartfelt condolences.

We wish to extend to Cathy, and all members of Wayne's family, our deepest sympathy on Wayne's passing. When we moved to Schuyler County eleven years ago Wayne was one of the first to welcome us and to give us pointers on how to find our way about. Over the years we came to cherish our friendship with Wayne as a fellow member of the American Legion and a valued participant of the Wednesday morning coffee gang...where many world problems were settled on a regular basis. Wayne and his smiling personality will be greatly missed. We can only hope and pray that many loving memories of Wayne will comfort Cathy and the family during this difficult times and for all the days to come.

In Sympathy,
John and Janet Neal
