    Wayne was always a friend to the Altizer family and we all loved him. My late brother Mouse Altizer loved to argue politics with him. He was a generous man and he had this wonderful sense of humor. It is sad when our lives get so busy that we lose track of friends. I hadn’t seen Wayne in quite some time, but he was unforgettable. Rest In Peace Wayne.♥️
