  13. We grew up together in Bayles, played tennis during our teenage years, and went to school together. Wayne was always warm, friendly, dependable with a ready smile and a laugh. So sad to hear of his passing at such a young age. Sending my condolences to Anita, their children, the Walker extended family, and for those he considered friends.
