Obituary of WAYNE WYBOUW

Wybouw, Wayne (Andre John) 1943 – 2020 It is with broken hearts that we say goodbye to our loving Hubby, Dad, Grampa, Brother and Uncle, Wayne Wybouw. He passed away peacefully surrounded by his family on April 13, 2020. He fought so hard and we are beyond proud of him for his strength and his ability to keep his sense of humour through everything, right up until the end. Wayne is survived by his loving Wife of 51 wonderful years, Carolyn Wybouw (Davis), his children, Tiffany (Craig) Stainton (Grandchildren, Gwen and Tyler), Todd (Hope) Wybouw, Sister, Rosette McGill and many nieces, nephews and extended family. He is predeceased by his parents Roger and Teuntje (Happy) Wybouw, brother, Gary Wybouw and step-mother, Muriel Wybouw. Wayne was an amazing man, full of life, love and kindness for everyone he met. He always had a smile on his face and was always willing to lend a helping hand to anyone who needed it. He loved sports and enjoyed playing basketball, baseball, golf and bowling. He also loved music and played many instruments including the piano, trumpet and accordion. He enjoyed playing in the band The Kingsmen for quite a few years in his younger days while wearing a baby blue ruffled shirt with a black bowtie, the popular style of the time. He was an excellent woodworker and craftsman and always had a project on the go. If you asked him if he could make something for you or fix something, he would always deliver, but would take his time to make sure it was done right. If something could be fixed using wood, that was his material of choice. He loved working for Morley at Misener’s Sawmill, and eventually retired from Norfolk Mutual Insurance as an Adjuster/Inspector. Wayne and Carolyn’s marriage was strong and full of love. They shared a very special bond and created a beautiful life and family together. They thoroughly enjoyed each other’s company and were always laughing and joking around. Wayne was an amazing Dad, Father-In-Law and Grampa. Tiffany, Craig, Todd and Hope all loved him very much and his Grandchildren, Gwen and Tyler absolutely adored him. He loved playing with his Grandkids and never hesitated when they asked him to come and play. He meant the world to those who knew and loved him, and he is already so missed. We hold dear all of the wonderful memories we have made over the years and take comfort knowing that he is no longer in any pain and is most likely playing golf with his Brother-In-Law Bob McGill and his best friend Grant Barkley. We’d like to think so anyways. Thank you so very much to all of our friends, family and Dad’s medical team who were so supportive throughout Dad’s journey. We are forever grateful for all of the love that you have shown us. Instead of a charity donation in memory of Wayne, please hold your loved ones close and hug them tightly and let them feel your love. Following Wayne’s wishes cremation has taken place and a Celebration of his life will be held at a future date. Funeral arrangements are entrusted with THOMPSON-MOTT FUNERAL HOME, Waterford, 519-443-5332. www.thompsonmottfuneralhome.com
