Wade had a big heart and never knew a stranger. He would give anyone the shirt off his back and always had a kind word and a warm smile to share, despite all of his pain and struggles. He truly could say that he attended the “School of Hard Knocks”. He will be fondly remembered by his family, friends and all who knew and loved him.
