July 17, 1943 – December 16, 2013
Douglas Wayne Rose, known to family and friends as Wayne, passed away peacefully at St Joseph’s Hospital in Comox on Monday, December 16th, 2013.
Wayne was born in New Glasgow, Nova Scotia on July 17, 1943. He fished from the East coast to the West coast for many years and sailed a ship around Cape Horn. He changed vocations to long haul trucking travelling throughout Canada and United States. For the last 13 years, Wayne bravely fought many near death medical issues but sadly he surrendered to his final battle. He is now at peace.
Wayne is survived by his wife, Renneth; sons, Jamie and Charles; grandchildren, Leonard and Trinity; his best friend and devoted dog, Miss Pepper; sisters, Verna and Charlotte; and many nieces, nephews, grand nieces, and grand nephews.
He was a kind, generous, loving man who will be greatly missed by family and friends.
A Celebration of Life will be held in Wayne’s honour at a later date. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation in his memory to the Royal Canadian Legion , Branch #211 Bowser , PO Box 115, Bowser BC V0R 1G0 where he was a member for over 30 years.
