October 14, 1953 – July 29, 2021

Wayne worked for a lot of years being a mechanic for the City of Aspen and Pitkin County in their fleet department. He was able to work not only on vehicles, but large equipment as well. He took pride in his work.

He was an avid competition shooter, and enjoyed trap, sporting clays, skeet, and tournaments. He was always there to be a mentor to any 4-H kids learning how to be a better sport shooter.
