Wayne D. "Skin" Allgood Sr. 81, of Elyria went to be with the Lord on January 9, 2020 following a short illness. He was born in Cowan, Tennessee to the late Walter and Edna Mae Allgood on December 23, 1938. He was a star football at Midview High School in Grafton, Ohio before moving back to Tennessee where he continued to flourish in basketball and football at Townsend High School where he graduated in May 1959.
He worked at Harshaw Chemicals, Standyne (which is now Moen), and York International but went to work as a school bus driver for S.B.S. Transit in Lorain, Ohio until he retired. He brought smiles to many lives where ever he worked.
Wayne was a very active man! He was a great fisherman, a great coach, an avid racquetball player, and a fantastic bowler; he loved softball and golfing as well. Not only did Skin love to play but he also taught many people how to bowl. He coached Little League Baseball for many years representing the Westside. Wayne was inducted into the Elyria Bowling Association Hall of Fame in 2003.
