WILLIAMS, Wayne Walden passed away in Port Alberni on Sunday, August 16, 2015 at the age of 74.
Predeceased by parents, aunts, uncle and a brother in law, Wayne is survived by his loving wife Linda of 40 years as well as many family and friends.
Wayne was born in Manitoba but came to the valley in 1964. He was a log scaler for 20 years until his retirement. An active man who loved being in the outdoors, he enjoyed golfing, camping, snowmobiling, traveling south in the winter in the motorhome, and was a founding member of Sproat Lake Water Sports Assn for 35 years. Wayne was known for his talent on building and manufacturing things and having a sharp mind that could come up with solutions to most problems. He invented a Bear Clamp Spray Handle to help those still working in the scaling industry.
According to Wayne’s wishes, no formal service will be taking place. A Celebration of Wayne’s life will be announced at a later time. Condolences may be offered to the family at www.chapelofmemories.ca
