Wayne was a loving husband, father, grandfather, and great grandfather.  He was a kind, loyal man who will be fondly remembered for how he embraced life and his commitment to his family, friends and community impacting all who knew him.  Wayne was a Funeral Director, having owned and operated several Funeral Homes in Nova Scotia throughout his 45 year career in funeral service.  Wayne enjoyed antique car shows, golfing and wintering in Florida with his wife Ruth.  He was past President of the Nova Scotia Funeral Directors and Embalmers Association, a long-time member of the Masonic Lodge and Shriners and served on the Board of Directors of Preeper Hill Cemetery and the Tin Shop Museum in Shubenacadie.
