Wayne Sylvester Alleyne 4/17/1959 - 6/12/2020
Wayne Alleyne, brother of Vidda Superville of Kissimmee, Fla., and Eric Alleyne, of Arverne, N.Y., passed away June 12.
He will be missed.
Wayne was born and lived most of his 61 years in Port-of-Spain, Trinidad, where he learned to revere Jesus Christ. He was a Baptist, loved the Bible and was well-known around town, where he lived with his mother, Elfreida.
Vidda took Wayne in after their mother died in 1998 while Elfreida and Wayne were visiting Vidda and her family in New York. Later, she brought him with her when she moved to Florida.
Wayne had a healthy appetite and, almost every night, would compliment his sister's cooking, telling her how good dinner tasted regardless of whether it was freshly made, left over or came out of a box or can.
Born with Down syndrome, he always wanted to be independent.
Wayne wanted his own house. He wanted his own car. He always wanted a pen and paper or a notebook to write and make lists. And he'd drive his nieces and nephews up a wall with frequent requests for all of the above.
He loved to pass time by watching TV. "The Young & The Restless" was his favorite, along with wrestling. He also loved policemen and wanted to be one.
Wayne was expert at making up his bed, but we'd get on his case about cleaning his room and the bathroom.
He knew about Presidents Clinton, Bush, Obama and Trump.
And if you got too close, especially when his big sister wasn't around, Wayne would always say, "I want to tell you something, eh!"
Besides his sister, Vidda, and brother, Eric, Wayne is also survived by a brother-in-law, Leslie Superville; sister-in-law Ann Anderson; 10 nieces and nephews and 13 grandnieces and grandnephews.
We thank Conrad & Thompson Funeral Home, 511 Emmett St., Kissimmee, FL, 34741, for the arrangements.
