We are saddened to announce that Wayne Turner passed away at the age of 73, after a courageous battle with declining heath due to diabetes related complications.
He is lovingly remembered by his wife, Elaine, of 44 years; his children Kirk and Chad (Amanda) Chubey; grandchildren: Jordan, Camden, Jaxon and Charlotte.
He spent 35 years in the education system where he worked passionately diagnosing and preparing programs for children’s needs as well as teaching. Wayne was also a stained-glass artist, kept an immaculate yard, loved his Siamese cats, could Mac Gyver anything to suit the situation with his storehouse of tools, was a huge supporter of Apple technology and loved to read mystery novels a large glass of Diet Coke.
Family and friends will remember his intellectual conversations, his witty sense of humour and his willingness to befriend and help neighbours.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Diabetes Foundation, 1300-522 University Ave., Toronto, ON M5G 2R5 as an act of kindness.
