They had taken on the challenge of restoring a dilapidated historical home in Galveston. This labor of love took 15 years and resulted in a wonderfully restored historical home. They recently moved full time to Santa Fe where they had a vacation home for 6 years.

Since moving to Santa Fe Wayne had become very involved with an organization called Rock Steady Boxing which is a therapy program for Parkinson patients. This had truly become a passion. He was due to be trained as a certified coach.

His work with RSB had become one of the highlights of his week and a true love in his life. In addition he had become an active volunteer with the Santa Fe Botanical Gardens.

Donations can be made to Rock Steady Boxing Santa Fe or the Santa Fe Botanical Garden.
