    Please accept my deepest sympathies as Wayne was a special client to me, I insured Wayne back in 1976 and the business when he and Dennis purchased Three Star Steel. Wayne and I lost touch about 3 years ago after I sold my agency, but the memories of our many lunches at various Italian restaurants will last forever. Wayne was a great family man and loved Susan and the kids very much as he always talked about them and the wonderful grand kids.

    I would like to offer sincere sympathy to Susan and family and to Wayne’s brothers and sisters and their families. I remember Wayne as a fine young man who grew to be a wonderful husband and father. I remember him playing baseball with Ray, Alex, Don Leibel and the others. He had to be good to play with the “old” guys. May he rest in peace in the loving arms of Jesus.

    With heartfelt sympathy and prayers,
    Marlene Chotowetz

    Susan and family,
    I was so sorry to hear of Wayne’s passing. Had I seen the announcement earlier, I certainly would have attended the service. In my short couple of years at Geco Steel, he was a great mentor and friend. Loss is never easy. I wish you peace, and many cherished memories.
