He attended LCI until joining the army in 1961, serving in Europe as part of NATO, stationed in Iserlohn, Germany. While in Germany, Wayne played bass guitar and sang in the band, the T-Birds, under the ruse of “public relations” for the Canadian Army. Upon his departure from the military, he worked for CP Rail, Purity Dairy and spent 33 years at Palliser Distilleries (Black Velvet). Wayne was involved with coaching his sons’ in hockey in addition to playing hockey with the Coaldale Sugar Daddies. He was also an avid slow pitch player attending the Huntsman World Senior Games several times with The Bandits. Wayne spent his retirement with his wife as snowbirds, travelling in their motorhome throughout the US, settling in Val Vista Villages in Mesa, AZ.

Wayne will be remembered by friends and family as one to never turn down a party or a beer, but also for his kindness, sense of humour and generous spirit. He will be missed.

Due to COVID, a small private Celebration of Wayne’s Life will be held.
