Wayne was born in Peterborough. His parents, the late Elwood and Muriel (nee Rooke) Pearson moved to Pembroke when he was 2 years old, where he attended school. He continued his studies at the Ontario Forestry Ranger School learning about species of trees and the natural environment. He had a lengthy career spanning over 35 years at Stone Bathurst in Portage du Fort, Quebec as a Procurement Inspector. He really loved being outdoors and sports as a spectator or as a competitor. Wayne enjoyed golfing and was an excellent bowler, reaching near excellence with high averages and working in his workshop. Wayne was a proud father, grandfather, great-grandfather who loved his family. We will miss his love, sense of humour, one-liners and sassiness to his loved ones.
Respecting Wayne’s wishes, cremation has taken place. Arrangements entrusted to Malcolm, Deavitt & Binhammer Funeral Home, Pembroke.
