Our Friend Kingman

Recommended Posts


Amazing Grace! How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found
Was blind, but now I see.

'Twas Grace that taught my heart to fear,
And Grace my fears relieved.
How precious did that Grace appear
The hour I first believed.

Through many dangers, toils, and snares
I have already come.
'Tis Grace hath brought me safe thus far
And Grace will lead me home.

The Lord has promised good to me.
His Word my hope secures.
He will my shield and portion be
As long as life endures.

When we've been there ten thousand years
Bright shining as the sun,
We've no less days to sing God's praise
Than when we'd first begun.

It is with a very heavy heart that I pass along this update on our friend Kingman.  I know that many of you have been concerned and have been praying for Wayne as he has been battling lung cancer. 

It gives me great sorrow to inform you all that Wayne passed away today at 4pm.   Rest In Peace dearest friend and Member of our precious community.

Rarely post here. However, this is God’s sunrise this morning in Anderson, Wayne’s home town.  Happy Birthday Kingman. You made us proud!

I was sorry to hear about Wayne’s passing. I considered him one of my Carverfest friends and will miss him. He will be remembered by his booming laugh and great attitude. My thoughts go out to his family and friends.

That was a very nice Gesture of sending the flowers to the Service,  The Lost of such a Great and positive friend really hit me hard.  I met him at the 2018 Carverfest and when I went into his Bungalow and saw his Sunfire Classic tube pre amp and system, I Said “ That’s what I want, That preamp and system looks and sound incredible”. When I first reached out the Sunfire line and pre amp, he was always so positive and mostly patience with me and all my questions, then as time went on we talked regularly. When he told me about when he found out about his Lung Cancer, I was very concerned but told him My mother had lung cancer and beat it. I said it wouldn’t be easy, But with his such positive attitude, and how he sounded when we spoke,   I Was certain he would beat it also. Though I knew how sick he was, I was blindsided due to fact when we talked last he sounded really good.At time I could hear it in his voice and would “ you sound tired” and it was usually just after kemp treatment, other than those times he usually sounded good.  It scared the hell out me when he went with pneumonia, then I heard he was released and it was so good to hear he was out of the hospital. What hit me really hard was that when he wanted to talk he would text” Do you have a few minutes” and I would alway call him right back. But the last time, he reached out to me asking if I had a few moments and I was playing golf with my sound, and I responded with that and I’ll touch base as soon as I’m off the course, But I was never able to get him on the phone after that text, and hit me hard. I miss his conversations and him so very much, we spoke of everything and he was always curious what my latest Sunfire purchased was, as he told me, it always made him smile. I believe it was of how crazy I would get with me tracking down the Sunfire’s amps. I do a lot driving going to my job sites which takes about an hour, so it became a habit when I got into car that I would reach out and see how he was and we talk the whole way when he was feeling good. My father passed away from Lung Cancer, So I would call him during my driving time also. It still hits me Dailey when I jump into the Car and I see his name on my favorites list, I find it hard right now to take his name off the phone. I still like to think of him now when I see his name. truly miss and will miss his positive influence and guidance for me when I always reach out for his advice and thoughts on whatever craziness was going on in my life . He would always calm me down and guide me in the right direction.

As with all of the people whom knew Wayne, I will truly miss him.
