To Wayne Pence Family: We were so sorry to hear of the loss of Wayne. I remember the many years of Wayne & Chris being at athletic contests and Wayne coaching teams. Wayne always was a positive addition to whatever he participated in. Debbie & I remember fondly the trips down I-75 to the Dayton area for events and stopping at Steak & Shake afterwards for meals. Wayne & Chris are now together in peace and I hope that gives some comfort to the family. Wayne will be remembered!
