Wayne graduated from Sinton High School in Sinton, Texas with the Class of 1942, and joined the United States Marine Corp during World War II in 1943. After boot camp in San Diego he was matched up to be sent to the aviation department in San Diego. However, when they saw that he played the bass fiddle and the tuba in the high school band, they were eager to hear him play, and after a lengthy audition, he began his service in the United States Marine Corp Concert and Marching Band. He met South Bend resident, Irene Johnsen, while they were both serving in the Marine Corps. They married on December 22, 1945, and for the next 67 years, they were blessed with three sons, John Patrick (Linda) of Moses Lake; Darrell Patrick (Maria) of Bay Center; and David Patrick (2013); 12 grandchildren; 21 great grandchildren; and three great, great grandchildren; as well as many lifelong friends who were thought of like family.

The family would like to give a special thanks to his past and present caregivers who will never be forgotten for their tireless support, love, and care.
