Born on November 17, 1934 in Carbondale, PA, he was the son of the late Richard and Ethel Downing Barth.

Wayne had a passion for driving trucks that started the day he became an owner operator for 42 years with Teamsters Union 917 in Newark, NJ.

The family statements reads “Wayne enjoyed riding his Harley and playing cards as well as the friends he played cards with, he loved to spend time with his family and his dog Gracie”.
