I met Wayne when Remacor and Rossborough merged, some didn't know what to think, after getting to know Wayne, he would turn out to be the best boss I had. We had some fun times at work while on the road, he will be greatly missed. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family

Wayne was the best boss and greatest/nicest man we had the pleasure of working with and knowing he will be sadly missed. The Scharf family has our deepest sympathy and will be in our thoughts and prayers.
