Blow after blow. News comes from the Widespread Panic camp today that Wayne Sawyer died in his sleep last night. Wayne worked with Panic for a number of years and was a great friend to many in the Athens music community.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to his daughter and wife and all of his friends in the Panic community.
Memorial Services will be held Saturday October 3, at 2 pm at St. Anne’s Episcopal Church in Atlanta (3098 St. Annes Lane NW Atlanta, GA 30327). There will be a gathering following the service at Martha Temple’s house (303 Wilton Drive Decatur, GA).
In lieu of flowers Shannon and the Sawyer family are asking friends to please make donations, in Wayne’s honor, to The Michael Houser Music Fund (www.housertribute.com).
