To all of Wayne's family and friends.  Just saw this obituary today and learned of Wayne's passing.  We hadn't seen each other in many, many years.  He was 2 years older than me and 2 grades ahead of me attending school at the S.S. #7 school - Bruce County Road 1 and 2nd concession.  We also interacted with him and his family at the South Kinloss Church.  Lots of memories. Condolences to all the family members at this sad time.

My sincere condolences to Lori and the whole Stanley family on the loss of Wayne.  Lori has shared, during some at work conversations, what a kind and loving man Wayne was.  It was clear from her conversations that we have lost one of a vanishing breed of Renaissance Men .....the world will be less bright with hhis departure.
