I knew Wayne for many years.
He was in the Canadian Engineers with my late husband
He was our Best Man when we got married in 1963
Rest In Peace Wayne
One of the biggest things that my mother Pat Shepley and Wayne Syms loved was their white-fluffy dog Mickey. They got the dog in the early 2000’s and each spoiled the dog in their own way. Mom would make Mickey pancakes and take him for a walk to the Burger King on Main Street in Hamilton for. his own burger. Wayne on the other hand would take Mickey in the car for their own “boys” road trip. While each had their own way of spoiling the dog, it was clear that Mickey was loved. My thoughts go out to Lisa and Michael and Wayne;s close family and friends at his recent passing. Some place this weekend, there is a game of pool being played with Wayne and some of his pals who have passed before him. RIP Wayne Syms,
Deepest sympathy to Wayne’s Family.Our thoughts are with you all at this sad and difficult time. Sincerely Wayne & Shirley Zess.
Boomer and I would like to offer our condolences to Wayne’s family and friends. We are so sorry for your loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
Sincere condolences to Lisa and family during this difficult time. We have lots of shared memories, living across from each other for many years on good old Mercer St.
From all the Lonz Family.
Our sympathy to Lisa and Michael on the passing of your dad. We knew Wayne many years ago, he was in the army Engineers with John Thomas, and was best man for us when we married in 1966. We visited over the years but as we aged it was difficult to make the journey. Keep his memory, say his name. John & Sherry Thomas
I have great memories of Uncle Wayne! His smile always suggested he knew more than I did. I am sure that was true! To me, he was always quiet (I was a small boy) but worth listening to when he spoke. I think Mike will remember the time he said to us just simply “boys!”. We got the message. Rest in peace Uncle Wayne.
Dear Lisa and Michael:
I will forever remember your Dad as not only “the fun” uncle, and someone whose company was so enjoyable at family events and when I ran into him in the community, but also as one of the first people who started talking to me as if I were an adult. I always felt so grown up when I had the chance to speak with him. Wishing you and your dear ones peace and happy memories.
One of the greatest things that Wayne accomplished in his life was to father to wonderful children. I know that he loved Lisa and Michael dearly.
At C.D.W. Wayne was very versatile and well liked. Was able to operate every machine, producing quality material.
Our condolences to Wayne’s family.
