Wayne was a sweet, kind man who was always willing to lend a helping hand at Chancellor Baptist Church. He could often be found in the kitchen prepping, serving, or cleaning for many of our church events such as dinner, Vacation Bible School, and memorial services. He had a servant heart and will be missed. We rejoice in his home going to heaven!
With love, Roger and Janet Woodard
