January 19th 1945 ~ January 9th 2016
Wayne was born in Victoria BC but was raised in North Vancouver. He moved to the Comox Valley to raise his family. He loved to work and did so in many different countries. The last 17 years were in the Turks & Caicos Islands. We came back to Courtenay in December 2015 to be with family, when we discovered he had incurable brain cancer. All of our family and friends were welcomed in to his niece Dena and husband Peter Morro’s home, here in the Comox Valley, so Wayne could live out what time he had left. Wayne was predeceased by his 1st wife Chrystal 1984, mother Jenny 1998, son Michael 2015, brother in law David 1991.
Wayne is survived by his loving wife Christine, 3 children Matthew Douglas, Richard Christensen (Charlene), Jennifer Fraser (Devin). Eight beautiful grandchildren, sister Donna Bews, numerous nieces & nephews, brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, mother-in-law Karen Anderson.
All family and friends please join us in Wayne’s Celebration of Life at the Native Son’s Hall Sunday, July 17th at 2:00pm. He touched many peoples lives. Donations can be made to a charity of your choice.
