He enjoyed the outdoors, cooking (especially grilling) and a love for fishing.
Wayne as a man with a big heart and gentle spirit, jovial, always had a joke, and he never met a stranger.
Leaving to morn his passing are his mother, darling daughter, Haley N. Holts of Lexington, KY; his companion of 18 years, Amy J. Young of Lexington, KY. The following siblings; Oretha Renee Kendall of Louisville, KY, Kenneth D. Holts of Somerset, KY, Sonja Piersall of Lexington, KY, Garnetta Paterson of Atlanta, GA, Melissa Sander of Virginia, Gloster Hayes of Louisville, KY, and Kenneth Boone and his wife Chantel of Louisville, KY. The family wants to also recognize two very special people, James and Fannie Coffey. Wayne called them his “earth angels”, mentors and friends. The family wishes to thank you for being there for Wayne at all times”. He shared a “Special” bond with two of his cousins (Ecclesiastes 4:12) Kendra Carter of Lexington, KY aka Kin folk “Related by blood , Friends by choice” and Robert “Rob” Holts of Lexington, KY. “Cousins by blood, in my heart you are my brother.” He is also survived by a host of cousins, nephews and nieces (who he had a special love) other relatives and friends. He was preceded in death by both paternal and maternal grandparents; a cousin, Brian T. Holts, and a brother, Ronald “Tony” Holts. When he called his aunties the conversation always ended with “Auntie, I Love You”. These words will forever echo in our hearts.
