Wayne was a wonderful person. A gentle soul with much history and trivia in his brain. Until he became Ill, he was a wonderful conversationalist. He will be truly missed.
We loved you and will miss you ❤️ Condolences to the family.

Cathy, Paul, Mark, Tracy, Ryan and family, George and Deb
My love and condolences for your loss of Wayne.
He was a wonderful person and a special cousin to me - one of the first people to hold me when I was born, and a close presence in my life my first years living on the same street. He was kind and patient, indulging me when I invited him to my dolls' tea parties and showing me how he made his plasticine models. He was part of the basement band with my brother, and party of my intro to rock music. I know you all meant the world to him. May your memories bring peace and comfort as you miss and remember him.

I have so many wonderful memories of cousin Wayne. We lived a few houses apart as young children, spent weeks together at Balsam Lake as pre-teens, worked part time at the same nightclub and played in basement bands in our teens. A wonderful guy with a great sense of humour and a clever wit. He was very creative artistically with his hands and his music. I wish we hadn't lived so far apart in our adult lives.

I have known Captain Fog since high school and had the pleasure of playing guitar with him at Woodcot for over 30 years. He was an accomplished guitarist who was at his best on many a Friday night in July, after a few “pops” when he really let go. He was a kind, gentle soul who was dedicated to his family and to his precious wife Cathy.
Rock on Brother.

As a new pupil in December 1959 I was ushered into Mr. Wright’s grade 6 class at West Humber Public School. I was seat opposite Wayne in a pod of 6 pupils. That was the beginning of friendship that would span nearly 63 years. We shared many good times and a few bad times. I will miss my dear friend especially at our annual gathering in Muskoka. – Bill Latham
