Wayne is a 1951 graduate of Baldwin High School and a 1955 graduate of the University of Pittsburgh School of Engineering. In 2001, he received the distinguished alumni award from his alma mater. He enjoyed a long career, working for Loftus Furnace, Holcroft, Thermo-Electron, Chester Engineers, and the World Trade Center. His work took him to many foreign countries in Europe, Asia, South America, the Middle East and Africa. Wayne adored his family, and loved to watch Pitt football, especially during the years when his son was on the team. Wayne has many dear friends, some of whom he will greet in heaven to strike up a poker game. He was the most wonderful husband, father, grandfather, son, uncle, nephew and friend. He will be missed by all who knew him.
A private ceremony will be held for family and close friends on Friday March 12, 2021 at St. Benedict Abbot Church in Peters Township, followed by a service at Queen of Heaven cemetery. A larger celebration of his life will be held in his honor in July. Salude Papa, Amore.
