    I have had the privilege to work with Wayne Parker for around seven years. If a situation came up with other people that was heated he would step in and turn it into a laughing situation, he was a great guy and a friend and coworker. RIP brother you will be missed!!!

    Such a tragic incident to take place. We moved into the neighborhood around the same time in 2006. Carol and Wayne always looked out for me. What a wonderful and God fearing couple. You will truly be missed! K.O.
