August 4, 1949 – June 16, 2021

There are no words which can accurately convey the heartache we feel over the loss of our beloved husband, father, brother, and papa. Wayne passed away on June 16, 2021 after a courageous 13-month battle with brain cancer. He died with his family by his side. Wayne faced his cancer diagnosis like he lived his life – with grit, stubbornness, and willpower.

Wayne was born and raised in Coaldale, Alberta. He was the only son to Henry and Lydia Kroeker. He had three loving and doting older sisters, Betty, Joanne, and Dorothy. Wayne met the love of his life, Gerry, at the ripe old age of 17. They married in 1970 and spent 51 years by each other’s side.

Wayne and Gerry moved to St. Albert in 1974 and have called St. Albert their home ever since. Wayne had a successful 32-year career at AGT and Telus. Wayne and Gerry had two children, Lesley and Darren. During the last 5 years of his life, Wayne experienced endless joy spending time with his two very special grandchildren, Margot and Henry.

Wayne was naturally coordinated and enjoyed waterskiing, golf, and baseball. Wayne was an inventor. You could frequently find him in his garage surrounded by his many tools and gadgets or alternatively tending to his meticulously manicured lawn. Wayne was beyond generous of himself. He showed his love and affection by being of service to the people he cared for.

Wayne will be lovingly missed by his wife, Gerry, his children, Lesley (Graham) and Darren (Sheryl), his three sisters, Betty, Joanne (Dick), and Dorothy (Joe), and his two grandchildren, Margot and Henry.

Wayne – we love you. We miss you. Life was never boring with you and will never be the same without you.
