FRIENDSHIP — Wayne Stillman Havener passed away on March 10, 2023. He was born November 17, 1929, to Stillman Havener and Edith (Winchenbach) Havener. He attended Friendship School until 10 th grade and then he joined the Coast Guard in 1947 serving until 1950 mostly on the Buoy Tender “Storis” making trips to Greenland.

Wayne married Kay Maybelle Davis on November 11, 1949.

Wayne was a life-long fisherman tending to his traps up until he was 87 years old. Many of his grandchildren would go out with him as sternmen. “To him a bad day on the lobster boat was better than a good day elsewhere.”
