Wayne began his career in car sales and spent most of his life working diligently in this field.

His humble nature, coupled with an impeccable work ethic, made him someone everyone admired. Regardless of the circumstances or challenges he faced, Wayne consistently found solace in prayer while diligently addressing the needs of both family and friends.

He had a deep passion for classic cars, finding joy in their timeless elegance and beauty.
