The death of Wayne Leslie of Central Greenwich, loving husband of Marsha (Parks) Leslie, occurred on Wednesday, February 19, 2020 at Bobby’s Hospice surrounded by his loved ones. Born on December 26, 1945 in Eastport, ME, he was the son of the late Melbourne and Raymah (Henderson) Leslie.
Early in his working career, Wayne was employed with NBTel before moving on to work with River Valley Express.
