His hobbies included reading, golf, gardening, travel, socializing, and maintaining his camp – appropriately named “Wayne’s World” – in Watson, New York. His favorite pastime, however, was spending time with his wife, children, grandchildren, extended family and friends.

Wayne loved his career in education, his students, teachers and the community. He had a special gift for engaging people, whether someone he knew or someone he just met; a truly kind, compassionate and generous soul.

Survivors include his three children, Carol Pearson and her husband Chris of Springboro, OH, Lori Finney and her husband Tom of Collierville, TN, and David Marcotte of Pittsford, NY; five grandchildren, Trevor and Rachel Finney, and Michael, Stephen, and John Marcotte; and sisters-in-law Ann and Linda Marcotte, both of Willsboro, NY.  In addition to his parents, Wayne was preceded in death by his wife of 59 years, Patricia Lyng Marcotte; his brothers, Ralph M. and Samuel J. Marcotte, daughter, JoAnn, and granddaughter Maria Marcotte.
