This letter is in honor of a man, Wayne Bentz.
Wayne was a longtime resident of Lodi. He passed from this life on Aug. 31, 2012.
In this life, Wayne may not have possessed much, but what he did have was priceless. Mr. Bentz had a heart of gold. If you knew Wayne you had to know Road Dawg, as the two were inseparable. On any given morning, the two could be seen on the streets of Lodi together.
Wayne was a good friend, and his friendship will be missed. May Heaven make up for the things he lacked here.
