Waterford – Wayne A. Stalker, 68 passed away peacefully at Albany Medical Center on June 27, 2022 after a long illness. 

Wayne had a dry, sarcastic sense of humor that was appreciated by many and he enjoyed making people laugh.  He liked to cook, especially a nice rack of ribs, his regular lunches with Andy and Paul and rooting for the Red Sox. 

Wayne was predeceased by his parents, Audrey and Howard Stalker, his twin brother Stewart, and sister Gretchen.  He is survived by his siblings Pamela (Richard), Brian (Debora), Penelope (Theodore) and Adam (Dianne) and several nieces and nephews.

Pam, Brian, Penny, and Adam ~ I am so sorry for your loss. I considered Wayne a true friend, even though I hadn't seen him for many years. I sent him a couple of PMs on Facebook, begging him to come to our reunions. I have so many memories from St. John's, where he was an acolyte and I was in choir. When we "aged out" of Sunday school, your Mom made it possible for us to continue meeting---we thought we were so grown up with our coffee & donuts. One time, he hot-wired her car in the church's driveway--just because he could. He was a real sweetheart underneath that sarcastic exterior. He brought an armful of black-eyed Susans to the hospital when I had my appendix out in '69. (He thought it was funny that I held my incision, afraid it would open up if I laughed too hard--and then tried even harder to make me laugh! I was happy when he came back to BKW for our Senior year. He was "Kolenkov" in our Senior play. The things you remember... Rest in Peace, Wayne Alan. 🌻☕️💔
