Wayne was born July 11, 1950, to Merrill and Adele (Radamacker) Lau.

Wayne was united in marriage to Carol Hogan on May 6, 1989. They were later blessed with their daughter Amber. His biggest passions in life was his wife, daughter and grandchildren.

Wayne also taught the hunter safety course for many years. Wayne spent 46 years in a wheel chair and never complained a day of his life; he always considered it a blessing.
