Wayne was preceded in death by his parents, Tom McCoy, Treassa Heth, brother, Marvin McCoy and half brother William Heth. Wayne loved the outdoors, hunting, fishing, the mountains, the wildlife and scenery of Wyoming and hated to leave because of health issues in 2008. Wayne will be remembered for his love of animals, friends, and an occasional original Coors. Internment will be at a later date in Lusk, Wyoming.
