Obituary of Wayne Detienne, New Waterford

It is with heavy hearts that the family of Wayne Joseph Detienne announce his sudden and unexpected passing on Wednesday, January 5, 2022 at his residence. Wayne was born in New Waterford on November 9, 1957, to the late George and Jessie (MacLeod) Detienne. In his younger years, Wayne was an avid baseball player winning several trophies and tournaments. Wayne was employed at the Lingan Mine and then, upon moving to London, ON, worked at GMC Canada Locomotive Plant. After returning to New Waterford, he was a handyman to Arlene and Lorraine whenever a helping hand was needed. Wayne was a family man who enjoyed spending time with his siblings. He looked forward to and enjoyed early morning coffee outings, watching the seals at the cove with Arlene. Being an animal lover, he became pals with Megan’s pug dog “Doc” who waited for his strolls around the block. We’ll all be lost without him. Wayne is survived by his brother, Dave (Linda) of Dartmouth; sisters, Lorraine MacDonald (Mickey-Deceased) and Arlene Detienne, both of New Waterford, Brenda Detienne of Dartmouth; nieces, Megan MacDougall, New Waterford, Jennifer Doyle (Artie and children, Emma and Everly) of Sylvan Lake, AB, Julie Thoring (Clay and children, Etta and Gracie) of Frontier, SK; nephews, David Detienne (Cindy) of Vancouver, BC, Dr. Jason MacDonald (Jessica and children, Adelaide and Amelia), Moncton, NB, and Kris MacDougall, Halifax. Cremation has taken place under the care and direction of V.J. McGillivray Funeral Home, 380 Smith Street, New Waterford, where, due to Covid-19 restrictions, a private family service will be held with Rev. Duncan Roach Officiating. Wayne will be buried with his parents in Union Grove Cemetery. Online condolences may be sent by visiting: www.vjmcgillivray.ca
