WILSON, Wayne Charles - In loving memory of Wayne Charles Wilson, 76 years, of Sudbury, who passed away Sunday, December 14th, 2008 at the Maison Vale Inco Hospice, Sudbury. Born in Kagawong, Manitoulin Island and raised in the Sudbury area, Wayne graduated from the University of Toronto with a degree in Metallurgical Engineering. He served for thirty years with INCO, working as a Superintendent at the Copper Refinery, Process Technology (Central Services) and later serving as Materials Processing Co-ordinator until his retirement in 1986. Early in his life, Wayne was deeply affected by the philosophy of the Christopher's society, “It is better to light one candle than to curse the darkness“ and this inspired him to embark on a lifelong commitment to community service. His legacy of service and commitment brought deep peace and has inspired many others. Wayne was a thirty-year member of the Sudbury General Hospital Board, serving as chairman of the board for a number of years, and later serving on the board of the St. Joseph's Health Center. He was a member of the Executive Board of the Victorian Order of Nurses, Network North, St. Joseph's Villa, Sudbury District Health Council, and the Mended Hearts Association. Wayne was committed to his faith and served on Christ the King Parish Council as well as acting as a Lay Minister of the Eucharist, administering to those both at the church as well as in hospital. Although Wayne struggled with heart disease for most of his life, he was determined to live his life to the fullest, treasuring his travel adventures with his wife Stephanie and time with his family. He loved every moment spent in his garden and in the pursuit of making the perfect wine, and had a deep passion for bird-watching, cherishing the time he spent with his brother in the pursuit of his feathered friends. Beloved husband of Margaret (Bannon) Wilson predeceased 1978 and of Stephanie (nee Sekerak)(Urban) Wilson of Sudbury. Loving father of Craig Wilson (wife Lorraine Allard) of Toronto, Catherine Smith (predeceased)(husband David of England), Marnee Wilson of Oshawa and Rebecca Wilson (partner Joe Strachan) of Sudbury, John Urban (wife Cheryl) of Ancaster and Thomas Urban (wife Tammy) of Sudbury.
