  1. Wayne and I worked together at the City of Richmond. He was always a professional, kind, and considerate co-worker. Even though we were in different departments, I could always depend on him when needed. May the family be comforted with all of the wonderful memories.

  2. Donna Port says:

    I also had privilege and pleasure to work with Wayne who always had a smile and a kind word to pass along.
    My fondest memories come from interactions with his close friend Sam Ballas especially during lunch.

  5. Sandi Stone says:

    Barbara, I was so sad to hear of Wayne’s passing. My sister, Pam, saw the notice of his passing and asked if it might be the Wayne Poynter she had heard me speak of. Your Christmas card was returned so I don’t know where you are living. Please know that you and your boys are in my prayers. I am here for you if you want to talk or get together. Please let me hear from you. Our memories go so far back. Love and prayers, Sandi
