He was a US Marine Corp veteran of the Vietnam War and being a recipient of the Purple Heart. After many years in the restaurant business, Wayne retired from Bimonte’s Pizza Castle in Cheshire (formerly Hamden). Wayne enjoyed vacationing with his wife and good friends, eating out with family and friends and trips to the casino. He also loved quality time with all his grandchildren and great grandchild. His sense of humor, wit and silliness was well known by all and he kept his wife laughing constantly, even until the end. He was loved by all who knew him and he will be sorely missed. We would like to thank the VA Hospital and Wayne’s primary care doctor, Dr. Federman, his Oncologist, Dr. Chow and all the nurses, aids, social workers and other staff from Palliative Care and VA Hospice.
