Sad to hear of Wayne's passing. He was a great person, with a wry,  ironic humor. I learned a lot about the Davis Besse plant and people from him. A good man to work with and I always looked forward to seeing him at Besse. I've missed him the last few outages and am sad that I shall not see him again.

Many good memories of Wayne! Go with God sir!
