Memories Timeline


  1. Mr. Wayne will defiantly be missed. One of the sweetest truck drivers Ive ever had to deal with. He was a big part of our MeadWestvaco DeRidder Family. Prayers for you family. Stacey Beard

  2. We are very saddened to hear of Mr. Waynes passing. He was a caring father-in-law to my sister, a best friend to his son, a loving "pie" to his beautiful grand baby, and a sweet friend to all. He will truly be missed. Deepest sympathies and condolences to his friends and family.

  3. It was a pleasure to work with Wayne. I always enjoyed talking to him when he came in the office. He will truly be missed, and I will miss his smile.

  4. Thank you Stacy. But we are gonna be ok. Its not the first time but at least it will be the last time. God knows all and we still have love in our hearts! God bless.

  5. He is also survived by 2 other daughters, Tonia Knight and Heather Knight. Also, 2 other gradsons, Mason and Jess Knight.

  6. I will miss seeing Wayne come to MeadWestVaco. He was always smiling and displayed so much patience. He never complained about long wait periods as sometime he would sit and wait as many as six hours before he was loaded.
