    Hi guys, this is Wayne’s brother, Mark.

    Wayne regrettable passed away surrounded by his family on the 2nd of Feb from a rare, aggressive and inoperable cancer :’( Devastating news for our family and deeply saddening news for his BT family too :( as I know Wayne was deeply upset after receiving news of fallen fellow mods also. Also wanted to show some respect to you and pass a section of my speech from the most relative memories of Wayne. Peace and love!!


    “Wayne had a massive passion for computers from a very early age where the Atari 400 captivated his imagination. At the age of six he was independently writing his own code for playable (although very basic) computer games .... as time passed the transition away from making games to writing electronic music on a Commodore 64 was apparent of his artistic and potential ability.

    The highlight of Wayne’s computer days was making PC cases with basic tools and self-taught knowledge. Within two years he gained recognition for his beautiful art pieces while making a great name for himself in a small community on a global scale – he later earned sponsorships and invites around the world for conventions and demos.”



    Just a quick update as I’m sure Wayne would have done the same for me!

    All the best guys – and thank you all

    M

    Mark, thanks for posting to let everyone know. Thoughts and condolences are with you and your family.

    It was less than a month ago that Waynio posted to say that he was terminal. A week later he was gone. Jesus.

    To see such a delay in his presence i feared the worst.

    Very sad news, I took a lot of inspiration from waynes ability to craft out of nothing more than plate aluminium and a dremel tool. a gifted craftsmen R.I.P mate

    That's absolutely tragic.

    Not sure what to say really. I hope his passing was as comfortable as possible and he will be sorely missed.

    Such sad news, another of our brothers slipped away.
    Wayne's imagination in his designs was amazing and a real inspiration; his hand crafted aluminium work was unique and in a league of its own.
    Rest in Peace

    No no no :'(

    Wayne was one of those fellows who simply brought the best out from the community with his projects. Getting to compete with him in the NUC contest a few years back was amazing, he was just so supportive and friendly, everything a person should be. Modding was a passion, one that he managed to transfer to so many, including myself. I'm going to miss him and his unique style very much.

    Oh man, another great guy? Waynio was one of the really good guys. Gifted, intelligent and just a nice guy.

    It must've been extremely aggressive as he only posted about being ill recently.

    He'll be missed, that's for sure.

    :( This year just keeps getting worse by the minute, really saddened to hear the news of Wayne's passing. When he posted about his condition being terminal, I was hopeful that he'd manage to fight it for a good while.

    My thoughts go to you and the rest of your family Mark.
    Thank you for sharing the sad news with us.

    Truly one of my all time favorite modders. A great loss to the modding community. Waynio will be missed for sure.
