Obituary for Wayne Sampson

It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden death of our loving Brother, Father, Papa and Poppy on November 4, 2020 at his home in Brampton, ON. Wayne was 67 years old, born in Halifax, February 23, 1953, and the family later moved to Louisdale, Cape Breton, NS where he spent his childhood years, then ventured on to work in Brampton, ON at the age of 18. He was the son of Eileen (Scanlan) Samson and Alphonse Jeffrey Sampson Louisdale, NS. Wayne is survived by his 5 brothers: Steve Sampson; Paul (Erleen) Sampson; Brent (Erma) Sampson; (all from Louisdale, NS); Brian (Penny) Sampson Markham, ON; Lloyd (Barb) Sampson Fort McMurray, AB. He is also survived by his 3 beautiful daughters whom he cherished and were his world: Krystal (Andy) Belanger; Michelle (Konstantinos Cotoulas) Sampson; Ashley (Katie) Cowell, all from ON. Wayne is also survived by his 3 wonderful grandchildren: Scarlett May Belanger; Chloe May and Benjamin (Benny) David Manuel; also 2 step-grandchildren Nicholas & Melina Cotoulas (who he loved like his own) – all from ON. Wayne loved his grandchildren more than anything. They miss him so much. Wayne is also survived by many nieces, nephews, grand-nieces and grand-nephews, cousins, aunts, uncles and many family and friends and one close childhood friend Derek Marchand, Louisdale, Cape Breton. NS who will surely miss him. Wayne was pre-deceased by his mother Eileen (Scanlan) Samson and step-father Alfred Samson Louisdale NS; his father Alphonse Jeffrey Sampson Louisdale NS; also grandparents, many uncles, aunts and cousins. He was also pre-deceased by his granddaughter, sweet little angel, Clara Joan Belanger, whom he loved beyond words and missed her dearly to his last day.
Cape Breton was Wayne’s home growing up and he made visits back to NS when time allowed. He loved Cape Breton seafood, his favourites were lobster, crab and fresh steamed clams…his brother Paul always found a way to have some for him, and he also enjoyed a good bowl of macaroni soup Cape Breton style. Wayne loved to visit his family and friends on his visits, especially visits to see his mom at the St. Anne’s Community Care Centre in Arichat NS. She loved his visits.
Wayne loved birthday celebrations and Christmas (his favourite time of the year) with his children and grandchildren. He loved music, crafting, Chinese food and Seafood. Also, anyone who knew him, knew he loved to take pictures. “Lots of memories” he would always say. Wayne left Louisdale, NS after high-school to start a new life in Ontario working and whatever life brought him. Well 48 years later he was still at the one and only place of employment in his work life at Brampton Chrysler. He was a very dedicated and devoted employee to Brampton Chrysler. He loved working and loved his job. He will surely be missed by all. Wayne was a very caring brother, always asking how everyone was doing. Wanted to make sure everyone was ok. He also loved his children and grandchildren dearly. He was a very devoted, loving and caring father to his children and grandchildren. They were His world and He was their world. They will all miss him very much.
Cremation has taken place. Visitation will be held on Monday, November 16, 2020 from 12:00 noon to 6:00 p.m. Someday soon his ashes will be brought home to Cape Breton, NS.

To Wayne family, our sincere condolences to krystal,Michelle,and Ashley, and his precious grandchildren whom he loved so much, my heart still can’t believe he’s gone, Wayne and l certainly we’re friends for a long time, I was always at Eileen and slept there more then at my house.I was talking with Wayne when his mom passed away we talked about the old time, the loss of his precious granddaughter, and about his precious grandchildren, also he was still working at the same place for over 46-47 years. I was ready to call him two days before he passed away and something came up and I forgot to call him, I only wish I had made that call. Rest easy my friend..hugs to his precious girls and all their family...💔💔💔

Sorry about double message. While in the process of writing the first one, we had a storm & lost power. Did not know part of it was included.

Krystal, Ashley, Michelle, Paul, Lloyd, Brian, Steve, Brent & All your Families:
We have been so devastated to hear of Wayne’s passing, we cannot imagine how difficult it must be for you all.
Wayne & all the boys grew up next door to us. We were very very close & he & I were only six months apart in age. I spent almost as much time at his house as I did my own.
When Wayne moved to Ontario, I was not far behind him. We were always in touch, in fact our daughter was flower girl at his wedding. I also babysat his three girls when they were young.
Wayne & I did not see each other all that much after, as we both had busy lives. We met up again when I went to get my hair done at my hairdresser who lived in his building. We met up & then had conversations on the phone.
Wayne’s life was all about his children, grandchildren & family back home. Wayne cherished his children & grandchildren so very much, that is all he talked about.
How I will miss you my dear friend. Even though we did not connect as often as we would have liked to, we made up for it when we did.
We are sorry we cannot attend the wake/funeral for Wayne due to medical problems, but please know that our hearts are with you. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.
Krystal, Michelle, Ashley & grandchildren, please know Wayne may not be with you all in person, but rest assured, he will be watching over you all. He will be holding & taking care of his granddaughter whom he was so devastated to have lost.
We pray you will all find comfort in the days ahead. Cherish the memories you all made as we will too.
We send you all our love.
Rest In Peace dear friend. Until we meet again, you will forever be in our heart.
Love: Peter & Linda Samson

To say we are still in shock, heartbroken & sad at Wayne’s passing, is putting it mildly.
Wayne & I grew up very close neighbours & best friends. I spent almost as much time at his house in my younger years as I did mine. Wayne & I we’re only 6 months apart in age, but grew up almost like sister & brother.
Our daughter was flower girl at his wedding, I babysat his three girls for a short period of time in Brampton. Wayne & I sort of lost touch for a period of time, but accidentally ran into each other at his apartment building where my hairdresser also stayed. After that, Wayne had numerous conversations, and it was like we had never lost touch.
