Passed away peacefully on Monday, January 30, 2023 at the age of 77. Loving husband to Catherine of 50 years. Dear father to Derek (2016) and “bad” Brad (Dale). Predeceased by his parents Robert and Hazel and his sister Marlene (Murray) Campell. Survived by his youngest sister Shirley, who was also known as “Shoosh” (Brent) and many nieces Cheryl Campell, Heather Berry (Jeff), Michelle Dixon (Sean), Melanie, Natalie; nephew Kevin and beloved dog, Lily, who has a pepperette addiction. Cherished grandfather to Hayden and Weston. Wayne is leaving behind many great relatives who are not mentioned above. He just couldn’t out-beat his aunt Anita who is still living on her own at the age of 101. He had a love for his family even with the vast distance across this beautiful country and he would always stay in touch. Wayne was born in Blunder Bay as he called it; also known as Fort William. He came to Southern Ontario and joined the Saltfleet Police force in ’67, making the streets safer and then later to become a Hamilton Wentworth Police Officer. He has lost and left many friends and co-workers from here and his hometown where his knucklehead friends still live. May everyone remember the good times and the laughs that have been had. I think dad can rest now and reunite with others, especially his son who he loved so much.
