Wayne was a man of great honor and integrity. He held his beliefs close to his heart and cherished his family, friends, and country. Throughout his life, he faced numerous challenges but always managed to be the best version of himself. Wayne was a proud man who dedicated his time and wisdom to guide and teach others. He possessed a compassionate spirit, never looking down on anyone less fortunate and always willing to lend a helping hand. His generosity knew no bounds, as he would give his last possession to someone in need.
Wayne cherished traditions and took joy in planning events that brought everyone together. Birthdays, Christmas, and Thanksgiving were particularly special to him. His presence and words of wisdom will continue to be felt, leaving a lasting impact on the lives of those who knew him. Wayne’s absence will be deeply felt, but his memory will forever live on.
He leaves behind his beloved wife, Debra Egner, and his children Lee (Crystal) Egner, Mechelle Egner (Andrew Groff), and Keith Woodall (Sara Holtzer).
