It is with profound sadness that the family of Wayne Thomas Cowan announce the passing of their beloved husband, brother, uncle and friend at The University Hospital in Edmonton on January 9th, 2024 at the age of 71 with family at his side.

Wayne was predeceased by his parents Ella and Harry Cowan.
Wayne was born in Edmonton on June 11, 1952 where he lived his entire life. He worked throughout his life as a delivery man, radio announcer, maintenance operator; retiring from Alberta Health Services a few years ago.
Wayne was a fun loving, social, kind-hearted and generous soul who loved his family and many friends. He enjoyed his sports especially watching the Oilers, playing ball, bowling as well as his involvement in the hockey pool for 39 years. Some of Wayne's favorite pastimes have been hanging out with his pets Nelson, Kula and Stinky, karaoke, beers, barbeques and firepits.
Memories are a way of holding on to the things you love, and the things you never want to lose.

A Celebration Of Life will be held at a future date. The family asks in lieu of flowers that donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society or to the Edmonton Humane Society.

  1. I worked with Wayne at Palm Dairies back in the 80’s. Wayne was a regular at our safety meetings at Drifters. Wayne and I saw the Oilers win their first Stanley Cup at Northlands in ‘84 ( thanks to Rick Morrow) and partied hardy that night. Always a pre and post game party on 82St when the Eskimos played at Commonwealth.
    Condolences to Cindy and the Family.

  2. Wayne was my best man at Linda and my wedding. My wife Linda passed before him. We lost touch with Wayne when we moved to B.C.
    Wayne was a good person and a very good friend.
    We attended Ross Shepard High School and later became closer friends when attending NAIT.
    I am sorry I did not seem before he left this earth.

    Linda and he will get together in the beyond I am sure
