Wayne dedicated over 30 years of service to Duke Energy as a trouble shooter. He served as an Executive Board Member of the IBEW as well as a Steward. Wayne was a devoted family man and found joy in seeing that his family was protected and well cared for. Wayne was known for his generosity to the point of having “Can’t say no syndrome”. His smile would light up the room and he was told by many that he gave the best hugs. As a music lover, Wayne created JAKLA media where he wrote and produced music. Wayne also had a fine collection of beautifully unique guitars. Wayne’s kindness, generosity and devotion made him a rare-breed that this world will miss dearly.
