My hero, mentor, & friend!

06.10.19

On Sat. June 8th, 2019, the world has lost an incredibly talented man, his name was Wayne Milnes! He would have celebrated his 69th birthday on June 25th.  Truly, he was the ‘Robin Williams’ of the Ozarks!  Hands down Wayne was the funniest man we have ever known.  He was the comic genius for many years, training at Southwest MO. State University under the acting Professor Howard Orms.  Wayne moved to Branson working at Silver Dollar City, Shad Heller’s The Corn Crib Theatre – the Toby Show, The Memory Makers at the 76 Music Hall & the Grand Country Square, Big Cedar Lodge, & 100s of personal appearances!  He had his own TV show ‘Sammy’s Place’ as Sammy B. Good.  How fortunate anyone was to have worked across from Wayne.   He was the master of comedy & Wayne was ALWAYS “on”!  He taught me, mentored me, & was my friend until the very end.
