condolences to the family of Wayne Ronald Perkins



Wayne Ronald

August 31, 1982 - October 1, 2018

Wayne passed away October 1, 2018 in Wainwright, Alberta at the age of 36 years. Wayne was many things, a son to his Mother, Judy (Pieter) Van Otterloo from Drumheller, a father to his children Jessica-Lynn Perkins and Wyatt Perkins of Wainwright, Alberta, a brother to his sisters, Theresa (Terry Hall) Perkins from Stettler, Leslie (Steve Bamber) Perkins from Fallis, Alberta and Jaylene (Ryan Quillinan) Perkins from Edmonton, Alberta, a step-brother to Peter (Chantalle) Van Otterloo from Three Hills, Alberta and Tanya Van Otterloo from Beiseker, Alberta, an Uncle to many Nieces and Nephews. Lastly, Wayne was a Fireman. Wayne was a volunteer firefighter in the Edgerton Emergency Services and most recently in the Wainwright Fire and Rescue for a total of eleven years. His family was his first love, but his involvement with firefighting ran a close second. He loved it and it showed when he talked about it and shared his stories with his family. Wayne drove and operated the pumpers, it was his responsibility to get the crew to and from the fire safely and then make sure the crew had a steady supply of water while fighting the fire. Wayne was a man of few words, he loved the simple things in life. He enjoyed his time helping friends on their farms, hunting, camping, fishing and being with his family. A Celebration of Life with Full Firefighter Honors for a Fallen Brother was held on October 9, 2018 at the Wainwright Legion.

A limb has fallen from the family tree that says...
”Grieve not for me...Remember the Best Times...
the Laughter... The Song... the Good Life I have Lived...
While I was Strong”
