Wayne Loy BreshearsOctober 13, 1941 - March 26, 2021
With sadness we say good-bye to our dad, Wayne Breshears, who died peacefully on March 26, 2021. We are thankful for the care that Wayne received at Copper Ridge Place over the past few years. We are also deeply grateful for Tammy, whose care and dedication gave the family great comfort, especially in Wayne’s last few days.
Son of Elsie and Leonard Breshears, Wayne was born in Wetaskiwin, Alberta where he grew up with siblings, Judi, Wilma, Neil, and Wendy. He eventually settled in the Yukon, where he worked for more than 30 years in highway and road engineering. Wayne loved the Yukon, its wilderness, and the life he made there.
As his three children, Miles, Cindy and Sherry, we each came to know and love our dad in different ways. We welcome any comments and stories you can share with us here.
