He was born in Niskayuna, NY on January 26, 1947, eldest son of the late Charles L. and Leila Miller Lovercheck.

Wayne was a 1964 graduate of Strong Vincent High School, where he was a member of the track and cross country teams and started dating his lifelong partner Janice. He graduated from Gannon University with BS degree in Business Management. He received his law degree from John Marshall Law School in Chicago, IL.
