Lisle was a very distinguished and honorable doctor! We will always remember his captivating smile and how very proud he was of his children! Sharing time with Sheila and family was so special!

The celebrating of his life will be a wonderful tribute to the person we all admired!Martha Weatherford March 5, 2019 at 10:40 pm
To Lisle”s family – you are much in my thoughts and prayers.
It was clear how much LIsle loved and was proud of each and everyone of you. May that give you strength and peace in the days ahead.
The small community of St Michael Neighborhood Association (SMNA) in Evansville, Indiana where Dr. Wayne and his family built their home on Canterbury Drive (and where his former business partner and dear friend, Dr. John Pulcini still resides) extends our deepest sympathy for the passing of a great resident member. Our memorial for our former resident member will be directed to our local American Cancer Society chapter.Pam Stone March 5, 2019 at 11:53 pm
Working for Dr. Wayne was such a joy. He helped so many people through his long career in Evansville, IN. I'll always remember his big ole belly laugh and the many times he tried to get one over the Director of Surgery at St. Mary's Medical Center, Jowan Freshwater, for being late. Good memories. Rest In Peace Dr. Wayne. You have earned it. Deepest sympathy to Sheila and his family.Gayle and Steve Markwell March 6, 2019 at 11:38 pm

So sad to read of his passing. He came to the Sumner County Stamp Club a couple times and I really enjoyed meeting him and discussing stamp collecting with him. I didn’t know of his background, but reading his obituary, he was a very important part in peoples lives in his military career and private practice. May God comfort his wife and family during this time of loss.Sandra_richmond March 8, 2019 at 9:12 pm
