For family and friend's weekends were always special, Wayne was a master at the grill and loved to BBQ, his secret recipe seasoned brisket was always a family favorite. Once asked what the secret was, he would just say, I soak it in something special and you shouldn't drive home at least one hour after eating. When Wayne wasn't yelling at the Dallas Cowboys he was riding his motorcycle or relaxing at the lake on his boat fishing.
