In addition to his wife, he is survived by four daughters and sons-in-law, Stephanie and Marc English, of Milton, Stacey and Gregory Berry, of White Deer, Tina and Daniel Ziegler, of Limestoneville, and Brenda Mader and her companion, Lynn Thomas, and her service dog, Max; one stepdaughter, Brenda Dickerson, of Marietta, Ga.; one stepson, Blaine Hackenberg, of Lewistown; 11 grandchildren, Colby English, Mackenzie English-Rudy, Lucas English, Nicole Weaver, Seth Kerstetter, Jordann Kerstetter, David Cypher, Chad Cypher, Alista Lebo, Bret Hackenberg and Chris Hackenberg; one great-grandson, Camden Weaver; one sister, Sylvila Mader, of Elizabethtown; and one brother, Jay Mader, of Middletown, N.Y.

In keeping with Wayne’s wishes, a graveside memorial service will be held at 2:30 p.m. Friday in Harmony Cemetery, Milton, with the Rev Woody Wolfe officiating.
