I knew Wynn during the time from 1965 to 1970. I saw him once in the 1990's. He was a young man of wit and subtle humor. Very kind with a wry smile. I liked him. I can only hope he kept these charms during his life and I am sorry that he is gone.

So sorry to hear of Wynn's passing. Wynn and my brother John Atchie were the best of friends and I'm sure they are catching up with both their dry humor over a cold bottle of Coke.
