Wayne lived in Taber and was a thriving entrepreneur as well as farmed with his father, brother Kenneth and brother-in-law Derry.
Wayne was a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and taught his children the principles of the gospel and of the love he had for his Heavenly Father and his fellow men.
Wayne was loved by all he met as his loving and caring spirit was always shining. Wayne worked hard in everything he did including teaching his children to enjoy life. Wayne and Joan created a legacy that taught the importance of family, service to others, humility and love. He was the cornerstone of his family and the rock his children leaned on. All who knew Wayne could see how much he loved his family especially his wife. Wayne was a proud grandfather of forty grandchildren and forty one great grandchildren. He has been reunited with his mom and dad, two brothers, two sisters and his grandchildren Jamara and Joshua. Those who wait to rejoin him will miss his words of love and encouragement, his strength, his smile, the warmth and protection of his all encompassing hugs and the feeling of safety and love he gave to everyone who knew him.
