I was just looking at the obituaries for another funeral and I saw Wayne's picture. He was always a smiling presence here at St. Paul's. On behalf of myself and the parish community we extend our prayers for him. May he rest in peace.
God bless,
Father Ed Henhoeffer

Wayne was My Best Friend for over 65 years. He was best man at our wedding 53 years ago and I was best Man at his wedding 50 years ago. What an honour. Wayne always had such a positive attitude loved Football Hockey(Maple Leafs back in the days) Politics Gardening and His Faith. We shared many conversations (some very loud at times) an Laughs over the years always stayed in touch. Wayne’s Family meant so much to Him. Our Deepest Sympathy to Joan & wonderful Family. May Your fondest memories somehow help with each new tomorrow.
Love Betty Ann & Bob Garrow
