Wayne Richardson Hobbs

Sept 14, 1928-March 1, 2014

Our beautiful Dad lost his 5 year battle with cancer on March 1, 2014. His family was at his bedside until the very end.

Wayne is pre-deceased by his beloved wife Lona, infant daughter Janet and eldest son Doug.

Wayne loved the Yukon and made it his home permanently since 1969. Wayne is survived by his brother Stuart, his children Bill (Carolyn), Patsy, Penny (Gordon), Rick (Jill), Pam (Clive) and Carol. Grandchildren Bill, Bob, Leaha, Ryan, Lora, Sterling, Steven and Theoren. Great Grandchildren Cameron, Jacob and Elizabeth. He will be missed by his many great friends throughout the Yukon and the rest of Canada and beyond.

“Where do you go when you leave the Yukon? You go to Heaven”
A phrase that had a lot of meaning for Wayne signifying that the only way you leave the Yukon is on your final journey.

An informal gathering to celebrate Wayne’s life will take place in the
Grey Mountain Room at Mt. McIntyre centre on

Wednesday, March 5, 2014 from 6PM-9PM.

In lieu of flowers the family requests contributions to the MS Society of Canada.

    I loved that man, when I was young he was so kind to me and he loved and respected my parents. I also remembered his wife Lona, I remember her as Lulu.
