    I have been Wade’s brother-in-law for around 46 years. And in that time I learned how unselfish and giving he truly was. I can’t think of one single time that Wade didn’t come to me when i said I needed him. I’ve seen him do random acts of kindness to perfect strangers. I am missing him and I will continue missing him.

    I worked with Wade at NAB and was just a good person and hard worker and a little ‘nutty’ too. I think he would have be a great commedian. A true joy to know. He will be missed. Praying for his family during this time.
