I was employed at Eric Hill Associates and worked with and for DeWayne in the 1960's. We spent many hours in and out of town diligently working to improve and enhance the community. I learned much too much from this fine man to list, and yes we did laugh a lot also. My deepest condolences go out to the entire family for your lose.

DeWayne and I worked together as Commissioners for the Winston-Salem Housing Authority. We became very good friends and I learned a great deal from DeWayne. He was such a smart man and had a great love for his community and doing the right thing for others. Just a darn good guy that I will greatly miss. I am so glad in this big world I got to work and get to know this gentle soul. Blessings to his lovely family. Lida Hayes Calvert
