I was so fortunate to have been a student and friend of Wayne Mason. As my math teacher he inspired me. He taught me to drive and was the first to point out what a lead foot I am!
I got to know Wayne beyond school through my friendship with his son, Jerry. Wayne was a man of integrity and strong character, and I learned much from him. He was a strong, positive influence on me as I made my way through my teenage years in Deming, New Mexico. I will never forget Mr. Mason. He will be missed, but his memory and influence on others will live on.
