So sorry about Wayne , Sure wish he could have enjoyed retirement years much longer . He always helped me when I first started in pressroom in automatics . The good ole days . Before they made us all one with transmats . That’s when he was ready too get out of there . He made my OT on days go so much faster with his stories , Always a cup of coffee in his hands . Rest In Peace . Prayers for all he knew
