Erling Wayne Jacobsen

It is with heavy hearts and great sadness that we announce the passing of a passionate partner, friend and brother. Wayne’s struggle with cancer was brief and he passed peacefully June 2, 2009 at Lions Gate Hospital with family by his side. We will miss his enthusiasm for life’s adventures.

Wayne was born in Naicam, Saskatchewan August 25, 1940 and had a love for the outdoors. Fishing being his main joy along with gardening, hiking, camping and boating he always had eagerness for a new found journey. He also had a love for the arts, music and photography.

He is survived by his loving wife Merle, step-daughters: Shawna and Tamie, sisters: Norma, Jean and Sandra along with 7 nieces and 2 nephews.
