Wayne (Woodsy) had a passion for sports, especially baseball – playing for the Friedensfeld Sultans for many seasons where he built many lifelong friendships. There were many times Wayne would discuss his point of view with the umpires on close plays or his own interpretation of how the rules of the game should apply. May long weekend was a special time for Wayne, friends would get together at Crowduck Lake for fishing adventures and creating stories that would last for years.
Thank you to the friends that came to visit. Wayne greatly appreciated your company.
Thank-you to the staff at Poseidon Long Term Care facility for caring for Wayne during his last years.
