Richard was in the youth group at First Baptist Church, where we both attended ... just an all-around nice guy. Loved to give me a hard time about my red hair and southern drawl. I remember riding on a bus to a youth retreat sitting next to him and thoroughly enjoyed getting to know him...a great big, strapping fellow, but very kind and sweet.

I used to go to lunch with Wayne every day our Junior/Senior years - remember sliding into the parking lot just in time to get to class. Often went to FBC to play pool at lunch. He was in design at NC State - I've always remembered his definition of "design" - "Man's attempt to imitate God's ability to create". Anyone know any more details about his passing?

Wayne was a true friend of mine.  We had a relationship that is unknown to the world as our bonding agent was God.  We both attended First Baptist Church where we worshipped and played sports in the gym.  As a result of my less than perfect diving skills, Wayne convinced me to join the swim team during our senior year.  He was my roommate during our first year at Wingate.  He even saved me during a fight in the parking lot at McDonalds in Greensboro after our graduation from Grimsley. 

Wayne knew the true Jesus of the Holy Bible and held Him dearly to his heart so much so that Wayne actully exhibited Godly characteristics that were embraced by those who possessed a biblical kindred spirit, and spurned by those who choose to live a worldly life under satan's yoke. 

I believe Wayne is with God now and I look forward to seeing him when my time is up. 

In loving memory of a fellow servant of Jesus Christ,

Rev. Ricky J. Brown

Wayne was one of the good guys. He was also a Guilford Hills resident living close to Richard Stewart and close to Battleground Avenue on Fortune Lane, if memory serves me correctly, which sometimes it does not. I think there were about a thousand of us who went to FBC almost every Sunday and others, including Wayne, who went there for recreation also. Even though we lost track after Grimsley, I still remember calling him "Eichelgruber" from Kiser on up. Rest in peace with the Lord my old friend.
