July 2, 1954 – October 11, 2022
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Wayne Frank Robert on October 11, 2022 after a lengthy stay at St. Boniface Hospital.
Wayne is survived by his wife Susan, sons; Kris, Ryan, Derek (Chenise), grandsons; Cohen and Henley, sister; Gail (Bruce), sister-in-law Karen (Hooman), aunt Darlene (Al), mother Doris, brother Ronald (Rosa), uncle Doug (Phyllis), and many nieces and nephews. Wayne was predeceased by his father, Frank.
Wayne was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba on July 2, 1954 where he lived all his life. Wayne truly did follow the beat of his own drum. He had many career paths from wrestling (under the name Freight Train Bobby Baker) to car salesman to educational assistant. Wayne had an eclectic taste and a great sense of humour. He could make anybody laugh with his absurd stories and goofy dad jokes. His favorite thing in life was to stay at home, watch TV and be in the company of his grandsons. He could easily be convinced by them to watch many hours of You Tube or Treehouse TV. Wayne had a big warm presence and will greatly missed by all.
A private family celebration will be held.
In lieu of flowers, please make donations to Siloam Mission 300 Princess Street, Winnipeg, MB. R3B 1M3.
