Wayne was a proud “Poppa” at their sports games, pageants and dance recitals. His big heart was one-of-a- kind, and he will be missed by family and friends.

He was preceded in death by his wife, Trudy P. Garner; parents, Jimmie Charles and Jerry Garner and brothers, Jimmy Lynn Garner and Eddy Garner.

Survivors include his children, Pridgett Presley (Steven), Madison, MS; Michael Garner, Taylorsville, MS, Justin Porter, North Augusta, SC and Tiffany Cantrell, Vernon, AL; grandchildren, Cody Presley, Lydia Presley, Haley Porter, Ryan Porter, Jayden Jimenez, Trinity Jimenez, Lyric Cantrell and Brody Porter; sisters, Carolyn Stringer (Ron) and Joy King (Mark) and sister-in-law, Faye Martin (Jeff).

Family and friends will serve as pallbearers.
