Heape, Wayne Edward

Heape: Wayne Edward

August 27, 1947-April 11, 2018

On April 11, 2018 Wayne passed away suddenly at the age of 70 from a massive heart attack.

He will be lovingly remembered by his wife and best friend of 55 years Linda, his 3 children Lisa, Kevin (Chana) and Kirk (Lisa) and his 6 grandchildren, who lovingly referred to him as “Papa Wayne”, Dana, Taylor, Carter, Sarah, Kaden and Micah.  He also leaves to mourn his sister Kathy (Al), his brother Tom (Carol), sister-in-law Evelyn and many nieces and nephews.

Wayne was born and raised in Hartney and surrounding district.  He met Linda in 1963 and they married in 1967.  Wayne and Linda raised their family in the Oak Lake area, eventually settling in Portage La Prairie where he established “Wayne Heape Trucking” which he owned and operated until his untimely death.

Always quick witted with a terrific sense of humor and full of many stories to tell.  He was a humble man with a huge heart and thought the best of everyone he met.  He is respected and loved by everyone whose lives he touched.

Never fully retired, he and Linda looked forward to travelling south every winter, where he encouraged his kids and grandkids, who he adored, to come and visit.

There will always be fond memories of his generosity and wiliness to help others.  As an entrepreneur he was number 1, always innovative with his ideas and plans.  As his kids often said “the wheels were always turning”.

Those we love don’t go away.  They walk beside us every day.  Unseen, unheard, but always near, still loved, still missed and very dear.

A memorial reception was held in celebration of Wayne’s life on Wednesday, April 18, 2018 at the Legion in Souris, Manitoba, following a private family graveside service at the Souris & Glenwood cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to:  PAWS (Portage Animal Welfare Society), 121-12th Street NE, Portage la Prairie, MB, R1N 4A2. click to read more
