It is with profound sorrow that we announce the passing of our beloved Wayne at age 82 on November 2nd, 2020 following a valiant battle with cancer.

Love of a lifetime to wife Lois (nee Rogers), dear brother to John (Dawn Desormeaux), cherished and devoted father to Mark (Kelly) and Michelle (Brian Hanson), and proud grandfather of Johnny, Laurel, and Cohen. Son of the late Mark and Blanche (nee Bondy).

Wayne lived, in his own words, an incredibly wonderful life. Born in Harrow, his family moved to Hamilton where, at the age of 8, he met his future wife. After graduating from McMaster University, Wayne worked for R.L. Crain for 30 years and retired from Laidlaw/Canadian Waste after 16 years.

Following 40 years of dedication to Kiwanis, he was recently honoured with his induction into the Kiwanis Club of Ottawa’s prestigious Hall of Fame. Wayne was also involved in the United Way, Habitat for Humanity, entertaining seniors through three bands (Mellow Tones, Sharps & Flats, and Souper Jazz), and member of the St. Monica’s church choir. He was an avid fan of the Hamilton Tiger Cats, Toronto Blue Jays, and Ottawa Senators, and adored his golden retrievers.

In his down-time, Wayne’s favourite place to be was the family cottage at Bass Lake in Muskoka. He filled it with 50 years of love and joy through three generations.

Wayne will be remembered for being a wonderful conversationalist and storyteller, pursuer of good will to all, man of deep faith, and devoted family man.

We wish to extend our comfort to those who loved, and was loved by him, especially his extended family, “The Group”, the bridge clubs, the bandmates, and many special friends of which he counted you all.
The family would like to also extend our heartfelt gratitude to the doctors, nurses, and staff of the General and St. Vincent’s hospitals who treated Wayne with compassion, dignity, and respect.

"Aunt" Lois, Mark and Michelle - The best memory of "Uncle" Wayne was the great parties of "The Group" where everyone got together - The "adults" upstairs and the "kids" downstairs. The pool parties where the families competed against each other for the "boot" trophy. And the parties you made the trip down for, Santa Party, the weddings, baby showers and more.

I will always remember his smile. Rest In Peace Uncle Wayne - You have a lot of the "group" to keep you company - give them all a hug for me.

I was saddened to see that Wayne had passed and I am very thankful and grateful for the many hours that I spent with him at United Way....Wayne.. was a wonderful and dynamic volunteer...Committed, compassionate ,sensitive, positive and always with a touch of humour thrown in. We missed his leadership and skills when he moved on to other adventures. I learned a lot from Wayne. It was a privilege to work with him. I also enjoyed meeting up with at various craft fairs where he was assisting Lois with the sale of her crafts!!!! My condolences to Lois and the rest of the family....may the memories you share help ease the sorrow......sincerely , Janet Whillans

My deepest condolences to the family. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.

Do Not Weep For Me. Do not weep for me for I have not gone. I am the wind that shakes the mighty Oak. I am the gentle rain that falls upon your face. I am the spring flower that pushes through the dark earth. I am the chuckling laughter of the mountain stream. Do not weep for me for I have not gone.
