  1. Lori Pyritz & Family says:

    Wayne was loved by all of us. He was a very giving man. He and my mom, Diana, regularly attended Sovereign Grace Baptist Church with us and was always willing to help anyone in need. You never had to ask. If they knew you needed help with something they just did it. I know my mom will miss him tremendously just as we all will. Praise God he is with our Lord and Savior. You will live forever in our hearts.

    We’ve been very blessed to have Wayne as a friend and brother for many years. We will miss his smile and kind disposition but only until we join him in the presence of our Great Lord and Savior.
