Diane and family,
We are so sorry to hear of Wayne's passing. He was a District Governor with Alberta Lions just before I became one in Saskatchewan and he was a role model for me. He got things done!
He was always a friend whether we met in Bow Island, in Richmound or at a Lions event in Halifax. He was so proud to show me his copy of the WWII painting of two planes plus the autographs of both pilots and the painter. We'll miss him; he was a good one!

Diane and family;
I was saddened to learn of Wayne's passing. I have many memories of him in the little shop where he and his Dad could fix or had parts for anything. I also remember his war plane paintings and how proud he was to have them displayed in the Legion. He always seemed so gruff but underneath was the twinkle in his eyes. I'm sure you will all miss him greatly and hope the happy memories will comfort you.

So sad to see Wayne taken so soon. Perfect hind sight I regret not taking the time to stop and visit and getting to know you better Diane.
