Wayne was born on Sept 18, 1934 in Mankato to Walter and Vera (McCarron) Comstock.  He graduated from Mankato High School in 1952 and married his high school sweetheart, LaVon Earlene Jackson, on October 23, 1954.
Wayne enlisted in the US Navy Sept. 1953; where he was a Quartermaster/Navigator on the USS New Jersey through Oct. 1957.  After returning from Military service, Wayne became self-employed, taking over the family business, Comstock Standard Service on So. Front St., following his father’s death in 1962 and continuing business ownership, Comstock Service Center on Madison Ave. from 1969 until retirement in 1997.
Throughout his life, Wayne was very involved in his civic, professional and church communities.  In his younger adult years, he was a member of Mankato Kiwanis, Jaycees, and Ducks Unlimited.  He helped to found the Minnesota Service Station Association 1966 – 1976 (Board of Directors, Treasure, President) and was elected to the North Mankato City Council (two terms) 1974 – 1982.  After retirement, Wayne helped to organize several reunions for his high school class and was on the Board of Trustees for Centenary United Methodist Church.
Wayne had many talents and hobbies throughout his life; automobiles, fishing/boating, hunting/firearms, photography, computers, and politics – having penned many “letters to the editor”.    In their retirement, Wayne and LaVon traveled in the winters to Florida and Arizona where he often held seminars and workshops on computer basics and photography.
