Wayne and Terry now are principle owners of over a hundred restaurants, a dozen real-estate properties and several other business ventures.
In addition to now enjoying an extended family of three sons, a daughter, spouses and twelve grandchildren, Wayne enjoys writing and is an avid reader of political books, newspapers and magazines. He is an active supporter of the National Writer’s Series, has read the biographies of most America’s past presidents and is a nightly listener and personal evaluator of CNN, FOX, MSNBC and the network news stations.
