The Rotary District 5340 family mourns the loss of Past District Governor Wayne Cusick. Wayne was such a dear friend and mentor who had such an impact on everyone he met. Back in 1999, Wayne created a program in our district that recognized donors who pledged to give $1000 every year to The Rotary Foundation. This initiative started slowly that year, but would quickly gain momentum and become the #PaulHarrisSociety. PDG Wayne's spark of an idea turned into a global program responsible for millions in giving every year to The Rotary Foundation, and his legacy is truly immeasurable.

Wayne was such a terrific person, a great husband, a wonderful dad. Humble, generous, and kind. On behalf of District Governor Marta Knight and all of the Rotarians of our community, our thoughts are with Lee AnnJenniferMichaelKati, and the entire Cusick family.

He never saw an obstacle he could not overcome. Wayne moved mountains, and we are so grateful for his service to Rotary International and humanity, as a whole.
