It is with great sadness we announce the sudden passing of Norman Wayne— loving husband, father, brother, son—at the age of 67 in Trail, BC. Norm will be forever remembered by his wife and best friend Benita-Anne (Bonnie), and their children, Greg (Tanya) and Bryan (Cheri), by his dad, Everett, by his brother, Ken, and his four granddaughters and was pre-deceased
by his mother, Amy.
Norm grew up in Nelson playing hockey and baseball and was in the Nelson Boys’ Choir. As a father he was an avid coach of minor hockey and he continued playing hockey, slow-pitch, golf, and curling as an adult.
He worked in banking and accounting during his working years so he and his family were transferred to many areas of BC. Since his retirement, he was involved with the Knights of Columbus, sang in Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic church choir, was an avid armchair sports coach and was known for his good sense of humour.
Mass of Christian burial was held on Tuesday, December 6 at 11:00 at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church, in East Trail at 2012 3rd Avenue, Trail, BC. with Father Matthieu Gombo yange, Ofm Cap celebrant. Memorial donations in memory of Norm can be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of BC and Yukon, Okanagan and Kootenay Office, 4-1551 Sutherland Ave. Kelowna, BC V1Y 9M9. You are invited to leave a personal message of condolence at the family’s online register at www.myalternatives.ca.
