We will always remember Wayne's very quick wit and comradery. We've know Wayne a short part of our lives, but he always felt like a life-long friend. Ralph and I are saddened to have lost this special friend that we didn't get to connect with often enough. Sadly missed, but never forgotten. Ralph & Penny Ross

I'm so sorry for your loss. Every one loved Wayne when they met him. Wayne helped me so many times in my life, he had such a big heart, and cared for everyone. He was so interesting and a great cook. I loved Wayne very much and still do.My hope is that we will all be re united some day. I wasn't able to leave Calgary, for the celebration of Wayne's life, my thoughts and prayers are with you. I will cherish every memory I have of Wayne my whole life. God bless. From Karen Brown.

I'm so sorry to hear that Wayne passed away. I'm not sure if you remember me, but I was the waitress/cook when you came to visit. I no longer live in Armstrong, however; I always tried to stop and have a quick visit when I returned home. Wayne was a great guy and will be missed by all those that knew him. Cranes Drive In.....the good ole days :)

Sending love and best wishes to Wayne's loved ones. He was a great boss and a good friend who certainly helped me out at a time when I needed it. Glad his suffering is over.He earned his peace.God bless.
