Share a Memory


To Joyce and family………….knowing Wayne enriched our lives in many ways and we will always treasure the memories of long association at First Methodist Church of Seffner. We send our love to all of you, from Jean and Tony Ippolito


I was fortunate to live across the street from the Allen Family. Wayne loved to go out on weekends in his Chevy Corvair. We made a large banner to welcome him home from Vietnam War. Wayne was always around when needed. He was ambitious, hard working, devoted to his family, filled with humor, faithful to his Savior . Cherish the memories. Wayne’s in Gods hands rejoicing for all eternity. My thoughts prayers and love go out to all his family, Kendra


So saddened to hear about Mr. Wayne. He and Joyce were a big part of my childhood and great friends of my parents. I was so conforted by their love the days and years following my father’s passing. I will always remember Wayne’s BIG personality, cutting sense of humor, and best hugs ever. While we’d lost touch over recent years he was very loved by my family and will be forever missed.


Wayne has been active role model in our at Seffner taught Sunday school to my children
He was a blessing to all who met him. God bless and prayers to the family at this time of loss.

We will always treasure the memories of the trip we took together to Hawaii last February. Wayne always was a tease and there was laughter wherever he went. Or deepest sympathy to his wonderful wife and family. His legacy of love will live on in them. May they take comfort in knowing that he is resting now and safe in God’s arms.
