When he was not working, Wayne spent his days woodworking, making everything from furniture to signs to artistic silhouettes. On Sundays he and his wife Lorraine were parishioners of Christ the King. Above all else, Wayne enjoyed traveling with his family going from the shores of the Carolinas to the desserts in Arizona and everywhere in between collecting souvenirs spoons and memories.

In addition to his wife Lorraine of 41 years, Wayne also leaves behind his two sons, his son Nate Blanchard and his partner Justine of Raymond, his son Jeremy Blanchard and his partner Kelsey of Rochester, his four siblings, his brother Roland “Butch” Blanchard of Lawrence MA, his brother George Blanchard of NC, his sister Mary McCarthy of NC, his sister Sharon Blanchard of Hudson.
