Wayne was the beloved son of Erma Hayes. He was a police officer with the Little Elm Police Department in Little Elm, Texas, from September 1998 to December 2004. He loved police work, collected police memorabilia and prominently displayed pictures of himself in uniform. Months before his death, Police Chief Rhodes presented Officer Irby with a plaque for courage in the line of duty. He was known for his passion for law enforcement and his big smile. He was a dependable employee who enjoyed being at work. He was quick to volunteer for extra duty and other assignments. He always reported to work with a clean pressed uniform and kept his police car spotless. He is credited with establishing the Department's first ever bike patrol. In addition to his patrol duties, Officer Irby felt that having bike patrol would supplement traditional law enforcement patrol efforts and be a community asset. After establishing the part-time assignment, Officer Irby rode his bike as often as he could and also put on bike demonstrations at community and child bike safety events. Officer Irby was a finalist for Little Elm Chamber of Commerce Police Officer of the Year award in 2004. "He was well liked by both the community and his co-workers," Chief Rhodes said. "He was a hard worker, very dependable and had a really good personality." He was murdered by his girlfriend, Denise Miller. His story was featured on the TV series, "Snapped!"
