Wayne was educated in the public school system in Brooklyn, New York. He spent many of his youthful summer days with his grandmother, Ophelia Boulds in Accomac, where he relocated with family as an adult. Upon his return, he joined the congregation at Macedonia AME Church.
Wayne had been an extended term resident of the Parksley Nursing & Rehab facility. He endured his physical and life challenges with patience and optimism, yet he consistently called family and friends with words of encouragement, as their situations dictated.
Wayne liked to watch sports and movies on television. He enjoyed music as well. However, he found his greatest pleasure from telephone conversations with family and friends, so much that he needed to replace his phone at least twice a year. Wayne also looked forward to the fellowship with his church family during special events and communion Sundays. When he was visited by his late brother, Clarence or his mother, bearing “treats” he would flash a million dollar smile!
Wayne was preceded in death by his brother, Clarence Greene; stepsister, Marilyn Greene Walker; aunts, Mabel “Van” Van Dunk, Emma (Charlie) Lilliston, Catherine (Howard) Conquest, and Mary Boulds Bailey; and good friend, Herbert Custis.
He is survived by his loving mother, Addie Greene; niece, Michelle Sledge; nephew, Eddie Sledge; godsister, Shawanna Francis; and other relatives and friends.
