Before Princeton and medical school, Wayne graduated from Millburn (N.J.) High School, where he participated in basketball, student government, and dramatics. After joining the Army, he reached the rank of full bird colonel and commanded Army hospitals. Upon his retirement, he earned a degree in horticulture and contributed generously to many organizations.
Wayne was predeceased by his wife, Shirley, six years earlier. Wayne asked that his and his wife’s ashes be interred at sea, embedded in a giant shell. Survivors include sons Kevin, Brett, and Kenneth, plus a fourth son and a daughter he raised from early childhood; five grandchildren; and one great-grandchild.
