To Judy and Family,
Thinking of you at this sad time and know that you will all have fond memories of Wayne.
He was a positive, cheerful man who loved playing tennis on the Stratford grass courts. I remember him as an active player who gave it his all - to the point of running into the hedge by the side of the court and racing back out again to play the next point.
Jane & John Mansfield.
Our sympathy to Judy and Family at this sad time. Wayne was our plumber and our friend for many many years. Always a pleasure to work with

Judy and family,
Sad to hear about Wayne, we had many laughs in the Stratford Soffe Cup Tennis team. He was a passionate tennis man, full of energy, often climbing the fence at the back of the court. I'm sure dad would of been there to meet him.

Wayne you are a legend and will be sadly missed in this world by all who knew you. In every sport you tried you set your goal of the highest level and gave it everything. You brought joy to those that knee you and watched you. i am proud to have known you. We could go on for years talking about memories that would bring tears to your eyes, the laughter you brought to people and things you never forget. Jacqueline loved the times you gave her on the tennis court and the experiences with Hudson the bear. Hope you are free of the pain you endured and one day we will meet again. Miss you heaps Wayne.
The most interesting man i have ever met. You were eccentric and awesome.
My condolences to all the family ❤
I'll always remember this great man... In the years we lived in Stratty... He was legendary... Decades older than many yet supremely coordinated and full of vitality, energy and a ready smile... Lept about the volleyball, streets and tennis courts like a man half his age... So glad Catherine and I dropped in to see him earlier this year at his home... Though Lobby's body was now clearly frail... His eyes and smile still registered his love for his family and life in general... RIP Lobby and deepest condolences to your beautiful loving family. GODBLESS and keep you brotherChris and Catherine Blain ( 09 Sep 2021 )
