Wayne Robert MacLeod
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Wayne MacLeod, age 71, surrounded by his family, on Sunday, June 19, 2022, in the care of Valley Regional Hospital, ICU, Kentville. Wayne passed away knowing he was loved and at peace.
Wayne was born and raised in PEI, a proud Islander who played a big part in many prominent construction projects across Canada, including the build of the Confederation Bridge. Pictures were proudly displayed at his home in Centreville, and they travelled with him wherever he lived – and there were many places!
A man who did the job right, no cutting corners, only the best quality work was acceptable, and you were told straight if that wasn’t the case! Respected and admired by the businesses he worked for over the years, Wayne was often sought out for his engineering and project management expertise.
A man of the church, Wayne’s life was fulfilled by his desire to show kindness and compassion to all, making an impact on all those he met. Everyone knew Wayne MacLeod.
Wayne was a devoted husband, survived by his wife, the love of his life, Lynn. Her happiness and that of his family was his priority, always wanting to make sure they were taken care of. Proud Dad to Lorraine (Peter) and his children through marriage, Holly (Joey), Troy (Becky), Robyn (Dave), Mark; Wayne’s children, Kim Dodd and Wayne MacLeod Jr. A man of strong family values, he took his role as father and mentor seriously. A doting grandfather, big in stature and big in heart, those "Papa hugs" will be missed by his grandchildren, Ashley, Alyssah, David, Jack, Lucy, Poppy, Anna, Riley and Drew. He is also survived by sisters, Geraldine Myers, Anne Marie (Colin) Deacon, Annette Callaghan, Mary (David) MacLean; brothers, Jamie (Susan) Clarkin, Bobby Clarkin; Garth (Janice) Callaghan; sister-in-law, Wendy Soward; many nieces and nephews.
He was predeceased by his father, Gerald Clarkin (1993); mother, Norma Callaghan (2020); grandmother, Annie MacLeod (1981); brother, Brent (1971) and, Diane Bradley (2018).
