I'd like to say a few words of tribute to this special man, from me and on behalf of other close friends and corps alumna. Wayne Duesterbeck was one of those talented drummers, who come around rarely. He was a key asset in the Eau Claire Boy’s Drum & Bugle Corps who was a section leader and drum instructor for the corps. He taught many corps members to become better drummers and musicians. Also at this time, I would like to give thanks to Mary Schlosser for composing the poem dedicated to Wayne.
