He married his sweetheart Sandra Cason on March 6, 1954 at the Love County Courthouse in Marietta, Oklahoma. They celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary which was attended by their family. He moved his family from Ft. Worth, TX to Bismarck, AR in 1964. He said many times that was the second-best decision he ever made. (Marrying Sandra was the first)

Worth, TX and numerous nieces and nephew.

In his early years he was in the insurance business. He then developed a passion for real estate and land development. Wayne and Sandra both founded Woodall Real Estate in Bismarck in 1970 and retired in 2020.

Wayne loved being on his tractor, bulldozer, mower, or side by side. He loved mowing his yard and took great pride in it and the garden he grew each year.

Wayne proudly served in the U.S. Marine Corps during the Korean War. He was a member of the Sons of the Confederate Veterans, Elks Lodge, Caddo Creek Golf course and the Bismarck Coffee Club where he has made many great friends over the years.

The family wants to express a special thank you to Arkansas Hospice and his caregivers.
