He is lovingly remembered by his brother, Barry of Revelstoke, BC, and sister Charlene (Bob) of Calgary, Alberta as well as many nieces and nephews. Wayne was a very accomplished accordion player. He taught lessons in Revelstoke for some time. After graduation, Wayne went to work for CPR, but then switched to CNR where he worked until he retired at the age of 51. He then started his own business, putting out fires on the railroad following the grinder and finally retired a second time for good.

Wayne was very musical and loved to dance. He even taught dance lessons in Edmonton at Arthur Murray studios.

Wayne always had a joke to tell and told them very well.

    I always enjoyed Uncle Wayne’s dry wit and deprecating humour. He never took himself too seriously and was always quick with a funny aside. I have so many fond memories of Wayne, my Dad Barry and Aunt Charlene laughing and enjoying each other and our extended family when we would gather together at the home in Revelstoke where the three of them were born, and my Dad Barry still lives.
    Wayne, Dad and Charlene embody the motto of the Three Muskateers. “All for one and one for all.” The siblings shared a life-long devotion to each other, and their many nieces and nephews and grand-nieces and grand-nephews and made us all feel welcome and loved and part of a very special family.
    I hope Uncle Wayne’s memory will bring some comfort to my cousin Bradley, and know that we are thinking of you and your loss and missing our wonderful Uncle.

    Sympathy to Charlene, Barry and family. Remembering Wayne during our growing up years in Revelstoke, oh so long ago. May he rest in peace and keep on dancing.
