Wayne Charles Masters Jr., a cherished father, grandfather, brother, and friend, passed away unexpectedly on February 22, 2024, in his hometown of Newton Falls, Ohio. Born November 14, 1954, Wayne was the only son of the late Jane Romanov Masters and Wayne Charles Masters, Sr.

Wayne was a proud veteran of the United States Army. During his enlistment, he served time in Germany. He also received the National Defense Service Medal.

Wayne’s love for music was unparalleled. He was a talented musician who played multiple instruments. Wayne enjoyed composing music and writing songs and jingles, of which some were commercialized.

He was preceded in death by his parents; his sister, Melinda Carey; and a son, Wayne Charles Masters III.

Wayne was a man of great humor, intelligence, and creativity. Wayne’s wit and warmth will be missed by all who knew and loved him.
