In May 2005, Wayne retired and moved to Sorrento, BC to live ‘his dream’. Wayne and Cheryl enjoyed many hours boating, fishing and exploring the lakes… not much went unexplored!! They were usually accompanied by their dogs! After nine years in Sorrento, Wayne and Cheryl moved to Salmon Arm where they lived until Wayne’s passing. Wayne and his dog Rikki took many scooter rides around Salmon Arm. Wayne LOVED his dogs!!
