Sadly, Wayne passed this morning. The WV radio community has lost an incredible engineer, but more importantly I've lost a tremendous friend. :( :( :(

In addition to his wife, Frances, he is survived by one most wonderful daughter, Helen Frances Bennett and her husband, Chadwick, of Brownsville, Vt.; and two of the greatest granddaughters ever, Sarah Jane and Margaret Susanne Humphrey. Wayne’s daughter and granddaughters were his pride and joy with unbounded love.

J. Wayne, as he liked to be called, resided on the Clayton Road with his wife, Frances Hypes Boone, and mother-in-law, Margaret Frances Miller Hypes.

J. Wayne graduated from Hinton High School with the class of 1965. His working career was spent in management and engineering in the cable television and radio industries, where he has many friends who were greatly loved and appreciated.

He is also survived by two brothers, Donald Boone and his wife, Joyce, of Alderson, and Daniel Boone and his companion, Lynn Davis, of Alderson; a sister, Sandra Boone and family friend, Sissy Cole, of Blacksburg, Va.; a brother-in-law, Richard Lee Hypes and his wife, Sharon, of Clayton Road; four nephews, David Wiseman, Shane Boone and his wife, Donna, Michael Boone, Joey Boone and his wife, Hilarie; two nieces, Margaret Christine “Christy” Hypes-Dolan and her husband, Melvin, and Sherry Boone; and several aunts and uncles.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Sherman and LouVerna Ballengee Boone; father-in-law, David Luck Hypes; sister-in-law, Helen Judith Hypes Wiseman; brother-in-law, Richard Paul Wiseman; nephew, John Luck Hypes; and niece, Frances Jane Wiseman.

Funeral services will be Monday, August 29, 2011, at 2 p.m. at the Lobban Funeral Home Chapel, Alderson, W.Va., with Wayne’s special friends Ron Whitt and Bob Spencer officiating. Burial will follow at the Hypes Family Cemetery on the Hypes Farm at Clayton, W.Va. Friends may call Monday, August 29, 2011, from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. at the Lobban Funeral Home, Alderson.

Family and friends will serve as pallbearers, and music will be provided by Christ Incorporated.

The one-of-a-kind casket spray was created by Wayne’s niece, Christy Hypes-Dolan.

The family would like to give special thanks to the staff at Summers County ARH Hospital and Beckley ARH Hospital, to Betty Taylor for her presence and support at the hospital and to June Willey for her presence and support at the hospital and for composing the obituary.

Arrangements by Lobban Funeral Home, Alderson, W.Va.

A tough weekend transitions to an even tougher Monday. I don't know if I've felt such a personal and professional loss. :( Thanks, guys.

So sorry for your loss Rock. As I get older that is something I've had to face from time to time, and I never get used to it. Prayers to you and J.Wayne's family.

Thanks, Guys....he was a very special, one-in-a-million type of person & Engineer. If it tells you how valued he was, more radio people than family showed up for service. :lol: Bob Spencer gave a wonderful eulogy.

Of course, now there are at least 6 GROUPS in WV & Va that are now SOL...our measly little 4 included. :(

Thanks again.
