The day I met him we shook hands. What I really wanted was a hug from this beautiful man. His huge smile and spirit were just glowing. That's how I will always remember him.
Wayne was old friend of mine since the days he ran the Music Mart. Always had a joke to tell. Loved laughter. He was a personal friend.Always ask to play on my set. So sorry Sandra and I can't be there. He'll be missed. Betty Our Prayers are with you and your family.

Graduated SW High with Wayne and Betty and haven't seen them since graduation but they residc in my memories always. Wayne was a happy sweet person during our teen years and selected one of the prettiest girls to become his wife. He will be missed.
It was a long time age we were all at Southwest High. As we cross over the river and sit under the old oak tree we will all be together again.
Hey Tony. So sorry to hear about your loss. You and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers. See you soon.
We have fond memories of growing up with Wayne in Adamsville. He was always a fun, caring, and outgoing person, and our family shared many happy moments with him.
We send heartfelt wishes to the family members.

I am so sorry for your loss. I've always remembered Wayne as a good and kind man.
Our deepest sympathies. Our prayers are with you.
So sorry to hear of Wayne's death. I have many happy memories of him and the jokes he could tell when we worked together at Wade Ford. He was a very special person.
I am so sorry for your loss. You are in my prayers.
Wayne was one of the nicest human beings on Earth. I will miss him dearly. He has given me advice my whole career and really made an impact on my life. RIP Wayne
I heard too late to attend the funeral service, but I am saddened to hear of the passing of a good man who always had time to talk. I remember Wayne sitting in his recliner snickering about something with Betty busily fluttering around in the background on many an occasion. My sympathy goes out to you all, but also encouragement that the hope of reuniting in the presence of the Son is not a distant one. I lost my father 12 years ago in October...one never gets used to it; one simply adapts. There will be times when one rounds a corner and loses it over a sight, a sound, or a even a smell that reminds of a moment lost but found again. The first year will be the hardest : Birthday, Father's Day, Holidays, & every date of the calendar that is now the first without him for his sons. Tony,..Steve, your mother will need you now more than ever. Make time for her whenever she needs it. Tony, call me if you'd like to renew a friendship. Miss Betty, I am so sorry for your loss. If Miss Debbie & I can be of any help, please call. After so long, I wouldn't want to intrude on your feelings, but sometimes sharing outside the usual circles helps. I am retired and do not have to work around a job; Debbie is a homemaker. Steve ( guitarist Excelente ) hold your brother up when he needs it. In closing, Prov. 20:7, "The just man walks in his integrity, and his children are blessed after him." Thus Wayne Stowers.......S&DG
Jabo and I were deeply sadden to hear about Wayne's passing.He was such a pleasure to be around. Always had a smile on his face. He was one of the nicest happiest people we've ever known and the funniest. I really enjoyed working him. Our son, Butch remembers fondly his first set of drums that were purchased from Wayne at the Music Mart. God Bless you Betty, the boys and the rest of your family. Sincerely, Gail, Jabo and the rest of the Stanley Family
