    Wayne Doss was my brother in law for several years. We share many fond memories of the late 60’s and early 70’s. Wayne was always special to me and I loved him very much. I am so very sorry to hear of his passing. God bless Wayne and all of his family.

    Wayne was my brother-in-law and I will always remember how funny and kind he was to me. When I was younger (age 7-13) I would stay many weekends and summers with my sister (Marti), Jeff, and Wayne. Wayne would always keep me entertained. When he wasn’t playing his guitar or keeping his yard immaculate we would watch wrestling together (Rick Flair, Paul Jones, etc….). At the beginning of every match he would always tell me who was going to win. I could never understand how he would always get it right. At the end of the match he would just smile and laugh. I am sorry we did not get to spend more time together. I know he will be sadly missed. Prayers go out to Jeff and all of his family. God Bless and rest in peace Wayne.
