My sincere condolences to Wayne's family. I had known Wayne over twenty years. He was a friend of my sister in law Therese Lee who passed away last Dec. She was in a nursing home for over two years and Wayne visited her most weeks. We met every month for a chat and some support. Pat Joyce and Martin Lee Toronto

Jennifer and Family:

Please accept my sincere condolences. I am a friend of your Father’s who resides in Toronto. Oddly enough for a period of time, Wayne and I both lived on the same country road, the South Line, and rode the same school bus into Walkerton. I didn’t know your Father then.

The man I knew was the man I met out front of his home on Parliament Street, Toronto, some 10 or more years ago. I was engaging in a ministry. I am one of Jehovah’s Witnesses.

I discovered a delightful, down-to-earth, humble, and mild man who loved reading the bible. Your dad was an avid reader; he had a bit of a sweet tooth too! Over the years we had many enjoyable discussions. Your dad spoke with great delight of his daughter and grandchildren; he was glad for your regular phone calls.

One scripture that your dad had memorized was Acts 5:29. It seemed to be a favorite for him.

I realize that grieving is a very personal experience. Normally, when we (Jehovah’s Witnesses) have a memorial service, we provide some comforting, practical, bible-based, printed material to our guests at the memorial service. These resources may be found by using the “search” function and typing in either “Help for Those Who Grieve” or “When a Loved One Dies”

Over the past year in particular, Wayne and I would speak for an hour or two a couple of times a week; in person pre-COVID, and over the phone since. I already miss these calls. I grieve the loss of a good friend. A scripture that comforts me is from John 5:28,29 which promises “… the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life …”; I look forward to that time when I welcome back a dear friend.
Once again, please accept my heartfelt condolences.

To the Wilhelm families, please accept our condolences. I remember playing against Wayne in the 70's. He was a heck of a batter and could fly. Our Lord has another ball player on his team. RIP Wayne.

I was so sorry to hear of Wayne’s passing. We had a great time together playing High School basketball and many games of road hockey in our neighborhood.
Shirley, Glen, Marlene and Mary you have my deepest condolences.
