He is survived by his brother Ted, Ted's wife Eileen, their children Monica (Terrence Spath) and Maureen, her children Mackenzie and Mason DePatie (all of Calgary) and numerous relatives and friends. Wayne's family expresses deep appreciation and thanks to dear friends Joe and Florence Manz, Bill Beckett, along with cousins Loreen Coghill and Howard and Monica Vollhoffer. They all provided love and support to Wayne during his recent illness. Prior to retirement, Wayne was a long-time City of Regina Parks Department employee. He was a generous brother and uncle, a loyal friend, and an avid sports fan. His favourite teams were the Saskatchewan Roughriders, Toronto Blue Jays, Chicago Blackhawks and Regina Pats. In the 1970s, Wayne was an assistant trainer with the Regina Caps, Regina Pats and Roughriders. A highlight of this time for Wayne was when the Pats won the Memorial Cup in 1974.
