HILL, Wayne Alan

Passed away on October 4, 2013 at St. Paul’s Hospital with his wife & daughter by his side. Wayne was born in Prince Rupert on April 6, 1946. He married his high school sweetheart, Gail in 1969 and moved to Nanaimo, BC in 1977 to further his career as a heavy duty mechanic. Wayne worked for 26 years at Nanaimo Regional Transit as an Equipment Supervisor and formed some very special friendships. He retired in 2007. After retirement he joined the team at Steve Marshall Ford.

Wayne is predeceased by his parents, Trevor and Blanche Hill. He sadly leaves behind his wife, Gail; daughter, Khole (Faron); granddaughter, Brielle; niece, Amber (Travis and Arianna); and his brother, Steve.

People who knew Wayne enjoyed his quick wit and gentle kindness. He was a wonderful husband, loving father, grandfather and uncle whom no one will ever forget.

The family would like to thank the ICU Team at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital and St. Paul’s who did everything in their power to help him as he fought valiantly until the end.

An enormous thank you to Bob and Rose Wylie who without their support, we would not have been able to make it through this difficult time.

A celebration of Wayne’s life will be held on Sunday, November 3, 2013 from 1-3pm at the Lantzville Legion, 7227 Lantzville Road, Lantzville. In lieu of flowers, you may make a donation to the BC Children’s Hospital.
