A memorial service to honour Wayne will take place at the Alan R. Barker Funeral Home 19 McArthur Avenue, Carleton Place on Wednesday March 16, 2016, at 10:00 a.m. Interment later in the spring, with his family at United Cemeteries.
For those who wish a donation to the Carleton Place Hospital Foundation would be appreciated.
Wayne was ever thankful to the staff at the Eating Place, and all who helped him, especially assisting him when walking and crossing the street became difficult. Wayne worked at the Ottawa Civic Hospital in housekeeping, and was a quiet icon in Carleton Place for 81 years. He was one of the last “milkmen’ in Carleton Place that delivered milk by horse. You and your stories will always be remembered Wayne by your friends.
He will always be the unofficial mayor of Carleton Place to me.
