Well Care Health and Farmin' Brands Announce the Passing of CEO Wayne Long
Wilmington, NC -
It is with a heavy heart that the Well Care and Farmin' Brands families mourn the passing of our leader and CEO, G. Wayne Long. Wayne passed peacefully on Friday surrounded by his family and loved ones.
Wayne was born in Newberry, South Carolina and grew up in Brunswick County, North Carolina, as the son of a traveling salesman and successful businessman.
Wayne made it his mission to instill passion and greatness to everyone who crossed his path. Wayne's vision was to be an exceptional beacon within the communities we serve; and his commitment to people was unwavering.
We are deeply saddened by his sudden passing. We have lost a passionate leader, a mentor, friend and father figure. Often referred to as our "fearless leader," he will be remembered as one of the most inspirational entrepreneurs of our time. His vision will continue to guide each of us as we carry on Wayne's legacy.
Wayne is survived by his wife Tanya, three sons and daughter-in-law, as well as his parents and sister.
The Long family has requested privacy during this time of loss.
