Wayne Steven Devereaux (1966-2019)

Wayne passed away suddenly on Saturday November 16th at the age of 53. Loving husband of Patricia (née Harnois) of 33 years. Father to Victoria and Brampa to Sophia. He will also be remembered and missed by his sister Tracey and nieces Melissa, Elena and Samantha.

Wayne served in the Canadian Armed Forces for 24 years.

His love for the life started as an Air Cadet in Georgetown On as a teenager, he then spent 4 years with Lorne Scots Regt in C Coy in the Mortar platoon. He left the reserves as a Sgt. He then joined the Canadian Forces as a Lineman in 1996. Over his 20 year career as a Lineman he had many postings. 1CDHSR where he was soldier of the year, 79 Comm Squad, the JSR, the Line Det in Petawawa, St Jean Sir Richelieu and finally at CFSCE in Kingston. He served multiple tours in both Bosnia and Afghanistan and was part of the DART team that deployed to Honduras after the hurricane that ravaged that country. Wayne left the Military as a Sgt in 2016 with his CD2. Wayne loved his time in the military and made lifelong friends from militaries from all over the world. He was the big Canadian.

Wayne will be remembered in many ways, an avid fisherman, the “shed guy”, a no nonsense soldier, a beloved Brampa to Sophia, a loving father and a loyal and dedicated husband of 33 years. He will be missed.

A Celebration of Life was held at the James Reid Reception Centre (1900 John Counter Blvd.) on Sunday November 24th, 2019.
