Wayne attended Pine Grove Church. He retired from Shaffer Ford Sales after over 40 years of service. He started as a mechanic and retired from the parts department. Wayne never met a stranger and lived up to his nickname of "Windy". He enjoyed farming, bluegrass music, and all sorts of sports, especially basketball and baseball, which he played at the Aurora High School. He loved going to auctions, especially the Preston County Livestock Auction in Terra Alta, where he was known to help them out from time to time.

He will be sadly missed by his children, Sue Evans of Corinth, WV, Kim Stahl and husband Kevin of Oakland, MD, Bonnie Evans and significant other, Mike Lecrone of York, PA, Dennis Evans of Grafton, WV, and Kelley Evans of Edgewood, MD; three granddaughters, Alisha Stahl, of Oakland, MD, Hannah Heard and husband Matt, of Wakeman, OH, and Malachia Evans of Greenbrier, TN; two grandsons, Jacob and Josiah Evans and their mother Chris of Terra Alta, WV, one great-granddaughter, Elliana Heard along with a host of nieces and nephews.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his wife of 66 years, Nora (Opel) Evans on January 29, 2021; four brothers, Darwin, Ralph, Cecil and Harold; five sisters, Grace Harsh, Gladys Hauser, Hilda Holland, Ruby Skinner and Nina Wallace. Wayne was the last surviving member of his immediate family.
