Wayne was born on Bell Island. He moved with his family to Spaniards Bay and lived with his own family in Conception Bay South until he passed. He worked in St. John’s most of his life and retired at the age of 60. Every summer for 30 years he played softball with The Molson CBS Masters Softball League. He loved the annual lobster boil with a close group of friends, the annual Turks Gut Long Pond Horseshoe Tournament, the annual fall hunting trip with the guys, and berry picking.
He also travelled the world with his wife. When Covid hit and air travel got shut down, he purchased a side-by-side so he and Norma could travel Newfoundland by trail with his brothers and their friends.
Wayne was a loving husband, father, and grandfather. He was kind, compassionate, hardworking and honest: a true gentleman.
According to his wishes cremation has taken place.
