    Well on April 11, 2024 I received one of those phone calls that we all know is coming but we hate it when it happens.

    I lost a good friend today, his wife called about 6:30 this evening saying that Wayne had passed away. Wayne and I met in England when we were both stationed at RAF MILDENHALL near MILDENHALL England in 1976. When he retired from the Air Force he returned to live in Omaha.

    He was a tremendously good man and friend. He will be missed.

    Thank you for your service and friendship MSGT WAYNE E FRY.

    Gretchen – My deepest sympathy to you. I had the pleasure of knowing Wayne (and you) through Omaha Christian Singles.

    I am saddened to learn of Wayne’s passing, He was a fine man. I always enjoyed his company whether playing basketball or just shooting the breeze. Gretchen, I pray you feel God’s presence during this difficult time,

    Have known Wayne for many years. We were both baggers at the Commissary at Offutt after Retirement from the Military. Such a “Fun Guy”. Thank you for your Service to America. What a Deep Honor.

    Wayne was such a kind and good person, I met him when he first came to Hope Church, and I enjoyed the obvious happiness and joy he felt after he met Gretchen! Gretchen, he loved you so very, very much! Wayne always thought of others. The last time we talked, he came to worship but wouldn’t go into the sanctuary because he didn’t want to bother others if he coughed. So we sat together in the lobby, had a cup of coffee, and enjoyed worship via the live stream on the lobby TV. He said he just wanted to come to church and be there; he missed being among his friends at Hope. He was a genuinely good man, and I will miss him. God bless you, Gretchen, for making his life full of joy!
