Wayne Gill, aged 68 years of Moose Jaw, SK passed away peacefully on Monday, October 3rd, 2022 surrounded by family and friends. Wayne had a caring way of thinking of others, a wicked sense of humour, he loved his family and his dogs, especially his favourite old dog that he has left behind. He loved fishing…even while struggling with COPD, he would go fishing every chance he could. If he couldn’t fish, he would watch fishing shows. He met his health issues head-on with courage and determination. Maybe when he meets up with his brother Allan, they will go fishing and cause some trouble again!
He was predeceased by his father, Jim Gill; mother, Estella Gill; brother, Allan Gill; and infant nephew, Trevor. Wayne leaves behind his wife of 46 years, Elaine (née: Leugner); son, Aaron; daughter, Amy (Chris Lalonde); and the light of his life, his only grand-daughter, Rylee. He also leaves behind sisters, Debbie (Bernie) McGillis and Donna (Alvin) Koch; brother, Rob Gill (Rod Schlosser); many other brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, nieces and nephews – too numerous to mention; as well as good friend, Dorothy Olynek.
Many thanks to the staff at the Dr. F.H. Wigmore Regional Hospital and St. Joseph’s Hospital in Gravelbourg, Dr. Geyer, Home Care Palliative program, and a special thank you to Tyler Mudry for the support given.
At Wayne’s request, a Private Family Gathering will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations made in Wayne’s name to the Moose Jaw Humane Society, 1755 Stadacona St W, Moose Jaw, SK S6H would be gratefully appreciated.
