Wayne met and fell in love with Evelyn Thoennes and were married on September 26, 1950 at Holy Angels Catholic Church in St. Cloud. He worked as a manager and was a partner at National Bushing and Parts for over 53 years until retiring. Wayne loved to travel. He and Evelyn visited all of the U.S. states & provinces of Canada as well as many places in Europe. Wayne enjoyed spending time at his lake home. He enjoyed fishing, hunting and the crossword puzzle from the paper every day. Wayne was a caregiver, a humble man who could make friends wherever he went. He kept busy with his projects but never let them take away from his time with family.

Survivors include son, David (Debra) of St. Cloud; granddaughters, Calinda (Derik) Wright of St. Cloud; Solana Brinkman of Crystal; and great grandchildren, Josiah, Delilah and Isaiah Wright and brother, Milton Brinkman of Sun City, AZ.
