Elliott, Wayne Douglas
June 9, 1950 – February 28, 2013
With profound sadness we announce the passing of our beloved Wayne Douglas Elliott on February 28, 2013 after a battle with pancreatic cancer.
Wayne was born June 9, 1950 to Ray and Jacky Elliott in Ottawa but grew up in Victoria, and finally settling in Nanaimo. His first love was family, followed closely by a passion for the open road. Wayne spent 45 years driving truck until his illness made it no longer possible. He always kept his unique outlook on life and his keen sense of humour. To know Wayne meant you were engulfed by his infectious laugh.
Wayne is survived by his soul mate and life partner, Dianne Lambert; the lights of his life, his sons, Daniel and Brett; and cherished grandsons, Caleb and Kayden. He is also survived by his brothers, John (Kris), Robert (Deb), and their families; as well as his aunt Winnie Wood. Wayne will be forever missed by his best friend Bill Rowbottom, who was at his side throughout his illness, as was his little dog Snoop.
The family would like to thank the health care professionals involved in providing Wayne with exceptional care. We would also like to thank the management and staff at Superior Transport in Coquitlam who were like family to Wayne.
It was Wayne’s request that no funeral be held, but a gathering of family and friends will be held at a later date.
