He was predeceased by his loving wife Patricia Rebecca Harshman Guyton of 62 years of marriage on October 16, 2017.
Together they had four children, Michelle Guyton (deceased), Denise Guyton Boyer and husband Rick, Byron Guyton and wife Vanessa, and Linda Guyton Brunner; six grandchildren, Joshua Gaither and wife Bonnie, Bradley Gaither and wife Karen, Wesley Guyton and wife Kristie, Jordan Guyton and wife Patricia, Aaron Brunner, and Hannah Brunner; step grandchildren Julie Boyer (Terrence) and Robert Boyer; 10 great grandchildren; Ella and Evan Gaither, Hayley, Jacob, and Daniel Gaither, Benjamin, Kaitlyn, and Emma Guyton, and Wyatt and Alaina Guyton. Wayne is survived by a brother Gail Guyton and wife Joyce and many nieces and nephews.
Wayne was a successful dairy and grain farmer for 60+ years milking and raising 200 head of dairy cattle. His most recent favored hobby was planting and caring for his many flower gardens, which were admired by many. He served as Board of Director member for many years for the Brethren Mutual Insurance Company, Maryland and Virginia Milk Producers, Farmers Cooperative Association, and Middletown Valley Bank.
