Although it is with great sadness we announce the passing of Cecil Wayne Fleming, we are joyful knowing that he is in the presence of Jesus his Savior. Wayne will be sadly missed by his wife Shirley; four children Delone (David), Penny (Terry), Howard, Cheryl (Mike), 14 grandchildren, 10 great grandchildren and his sisters Cleone (Ron) and Arlene (Willis).
He was predeceased by his mother Ivy Julia and his father John Clifford.
Wayne completed his geology degree at Colorado College and began his career as a geologist for Shell Canada and then worked with Numac Oil and Gas. Wayne was well known for his passionate 50 years of service given to Canadian football officiating. As a 40-year, charter member, Wayne was dedicated to the building and growth of Trinity Baptist Church. He enjoyed sports, hunting, beer, and playing in a Dixieland jazz band, but his greatest love was for Shirley, his wife of 62 years.
The Interment was held on Friday April 20, 2018 at Glenwood Memorial Gardens. There will be a Celebration of Wayne’s Life at a Memorial Service on Monday, April 23, 2018, at 2:00PM at Trinity Baptist Church, 22550 Township 530 Rd, Sherwood Park.
In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Wayne may be made to either International Justice Mission Canada https://support.ijm.ca/give or Hope International Development Agency.
