Remembering Wayne Mang

From: Brian Quistberg

I have always appreciated your support - way back in the late 70’s when I dated Leanne. Your family treated me as a part of the family. You watched my football games with enthusiasm. I have fond memories of many meals at the Hearthside!!

I don’t know how to describe Wayne except to say he was one of the nicest kindest men I ever met. Lee and I have enjoyed his company on several occasions with my best friend Carol. We were so sorry to hear of his passing and he will be greatly missed. May God bless you all.

I am so sorry to hear of Wayne's passing. Wayne was Harvey's best friend and whenever he visited Regina and they were together it was as if no time had passed. Harvey passed away on May 7, 2018, Wayne & Carol traveled to Regina for his service and Wayne graciously agreed to do the eulogy. His words were very special. I was so glad to know him. He talked about his family always. My condolences to the entire family. I know that Carol was so special to him and I was so fortunate to know her too. Thinking of all of you. Hugs and Love to Carol & the rest of the family.

From: Bryon & Bonnie Downs

Carol, Our heartfelt sympathy in the passing of Wayne. What a true" Gentle Man" he was. We met 3 or 4 years ago when Anne & Tom introduced us and how I wished I had known Wayne longer, as I found him to be such a smart and interesting man. Our world would be a much greater place if there were more Wayne's in it. Unfortunately I am having surgery in London this week and am not sure when we will be back. If we are not back by Friday in time for Wayne's Funeral please know that our thoughts and prayers will be with you Carol and Wayne's Family. We will all miss him. Hugs to you all. Bryon & Bonnie Downs.

From: Bill Schwan, Cindy Harper, and Matt and Meg Schwan

We are very sorry to hear of Wayne's passing. He warmly welcomed our family to the neighbourhood, introduced us to his family members and was a true friend - the big brother that Cindy and I never had, a mentor to each of our children, and always available to listen and provide counsel. Many great parties were held at his home, and we were thrilled to part of more than a few. We will miss you Wayne.

From: Roz and Michael

Dear Carol, Shana, Allison, Hanna and Trevor We were so privileged to have known Wayne for the past 22 years. Whenever we had the opportunity of being with Wayne we were enriched by his kindness, warmth, understanding and sense of humour. He and Carol would light up a room with their presence and laughter. We were so lucky to be with them on Christmas at the farm, sharing Wayne’s amazing turkey and allowing us to avoid Carol’s vegans. Rip dear friend. We know that your memory will be a blessing to all.

From: Pete, Rachel and Mackenzie

It was apparent from our first meeting , that Wayne was an extraordinary man. He was genuinely interested in others. We were privileged to be Wayne and Carol's neighbours at 'The Farm'. I will always remember Wayne riding the lawn tractor, and his hearty wave across his expanse of well manicured grass. I will cherish the occasions where we would chat, share an occasional beer, and mostly, when Wayne and Carol attended the New Years Eve parties at Massie Hall, when our band entertained . He thanked me for providing the music and what a wonderful time he and Carol had dancing . Wayne was a special person, we are all the better for knowing him , if even for only a few years . He will be sadly missed by us.

Although our time with Wayne has been short, we will always treasure it! In life we look forward to surrounding ourselves with people as caring, inspirational and genuine as Wayne. Till we meet again!
