Wayne was born December 30, 1946, in Fort Belknap to William "Bud" and Dolores (Brisbo) Healy. He was raised in Fort Belknap, attending school at the Mission in Hays. Wayne obtained his GED and then entered the U.S. Marine Corps and served multiple tours in Vietnam, including at Wounded Knee. There he fought enemies, both foreign and domestic. He was a true warrior.
Upon his return, Wayne worked as a mechanic for a time until his military injuries caused the VA to determine that he was disabled. In 1976, he married Audrey Mae Moore, and the couple lived their lives intertwined until her death in 2000.
Wayne was a truly kind man with a wonderful smile who enjoyed traveling, playing his guitar, and singing.
