Wayne passed away peacefully surrounded by family in the days and hours leading up to his passing. He is survived by his step children Karen and Ricky, grand children Sara, Jesse, and Tasha and 4 great grandchildren.

Wayne loved to tell everyone he met all about his great grandchildren. We think he liked to brag about having 4, but he never forgot to make others feel important by also sharing with family about staff and their kids too. He loved to tell his grand daughter and her husband all about the amazing staff at his long term care facility and all the jokes he’d make with them. He made some great friends with the nurses and other care staff, his roommate Roy and his wife. We are so very grateful to the nurses and care staff that cared for him and continued to check in to make sure we were doing okay after his passing.

Wayne loved to be the center of attention, he enjoyed making people laugh and smile. He had a big heart and liked to share and brighten peoples day. Among liking to make others happy, Wayne had a deep love for cars. He was big on classic cars and would gush about the cars he seen when they’d have group outings.

We can’t count how many times he’d tell us about their outings, watching wrestling (he loved to watch wrestling with his grandkids when we were growing up!) and other shows with his friend Roy.

We are so grateful to everyone who’s been apart of this process, who loved and liked Wayne as much as we did. We believe he’s in a better place, at peace and no longer in pain. ❤️

  1. I am very saddened to hear of the passing of Wayne. Wayne and I had some great times when I would go and play for the residents. I think my favourite time was the car show, you can see it by the smiles on our faces in the picture. I will alway dedicate the song “King of the Road” to Wayne each time I play it from now on. I send family and friends my sincere condolences and best wishes for the days to come.

  2. I was very saddened to hear of Wayne’s passing. I got to know him over the last 5 months and especially enjoyed his sense of humour and jokes! He was one of the first residents I met at Lynnwood, and he definitely left a mark. He contributed positively to our community and daily lives of residents, volunteers and staff. Wayne is already greatly missed by many! Condolences to his friends, family and all who knew him.

  3. Wayne you were such a huge presence at Lynwood. I always enjoyed our talks, and you were always front and center at events. I will truly miss seeing you every day, there is such a void right now. I know you are in a better place, listening to music and driving a fancy antique car. RIP

  4. I’m one of an endless list of Wayne’s friends & people whose lives he brightened. I met him at Lynnwood when I began volunteering there a few years ago & he quickly became the highlight of my visits. He never once complained to me about his physical state, but instead always asked about my family, teased me about my wheelchair driving skills & then launched into hilarious stories from his life. Wayne’s stories were legendary & I always marvelled at his memory, his story-telling abilities & the crazy things that happened to him during his life. I will miss Wayne terribly, as I know so many others at Lynnwood will. He was one of a kind & will never be forgotten. We love you Wayne. Condolences to your family.
