Celebrating the life of Roy Wayne Marshall
Thank you for signing Roy Wayne Marshall's Guestbook
I'm so very sorry to hear that Wayne has gone away. I remember him as a bus driver when I was a kid and then after all this time we reconnected at the Engelhard Hotel Breakfast gathering place. He shared with us his truck stories and the trophy he gave away to a little boy. He was a good friend to many. Shine on, Wayne from Pat Pugh McKeithan

Thoughts and prayers for the family. He was a kind man. Always had a smile on his face at the tractor pulls. He will be missed.

I'll never forget Uncle Wayne's snickering laugh. I'll also always remember what he has called me my whole life..."short & squatty, all ass, no body!" I'm so sorry he has left this world and wish that I had spent more time around him in recent years.
