Wayne is remembered with a great fondness and of a time during my childhood when he was playing softball with us at family reunions, introducing the Mulkey city kids to piglets and making mud pies. I offer sincere condolences to the nearest and dearest family.

I worked with Wayne at UPS for his entire career. He was one of the hardest workers UPS has had. His work ethic,honesty and great personality made him one of my favorite co-workers. He is greatly missed. My prayers and condolences are with his family.
