Obituary

Hawthorne, Wayne
It is with great sadness and shock that we announce the passing of Wayne Hawthorne, on Saturday, July 6, 2019, after a very short battle with cancer. First and foremost, Wayne was an artist. He worked with wood and loved to draw. He could be seen at all kinds of functions drawing portraits in his sketch book. He was a volunteer and great promoter of Theatre Orangeville right from its inception. Wayne was an original volunteer with the Jazz and Blues Festival. He was known in the construction business having worked with numerous builders. Wayne loved books and was a constant visitor to the Grand Valley and Orangeville libraries. Wayne loved people. He was a friendly guy, always ready to help. He believed in hugs rather than handshakes. Most of all, he just wanted to be with the love of his life, his wife, best friend, and fellow artist, Kathryn Thomson. He will be greatly missed by Kathryn's sisters and extended family, family around North Bay, and amazing close friends across the country. Some furry "kids" will also miss him. Wayne is gone much too young at 67. There was still so much more to do.

A Celebration of Wayne's Life will be held at the Dods & McNair Funeral Home, Chapel & Reception Centre, 21 First St., Orangeville on Sunday, July 28, 2019 from 3:00 to 6:00 p.m. Memorial donations to Grand Valley Public Library, Cat's Anonymous, or charity of your choice would be appreciated by the family.

A tree will be planted in memory of Wayne in the Dods & McNair Memorial Forest at the Island Lake Conservation Area, Orangeville. The annual dedication service will be held on Sunday, September 8, 2019 at 2:30 p.m. Condolences may be offered to the family at www.dodsandmcnair.com

So sad to hear the news of Wayne's passing. When we volunteered at Theatre Orangeville performances, Wayne always had a smile and was ready to chat. Such a kind hearted guy. He will be missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with you, Kathryn.

Just to correct/ edit my previous message, it should have read 'dodgy stuff' not doggy stuff. Huge apologies if this caused any offence.

Thank you Wayne for helping me out in my hour(s) of need. Thank you for making my new home my own. And thank you too Kathryn for sharing him with me. I did try and prevent him from doing doggy 'stuff' by reminding him that I didn't fear him, but I did not want to be answerable to Kathryn for any injuries, which normally worked.
Rest in peace my friend

Wayne had such an infectious smile and always took time to talk to you. I often saw him and Kathryn volunteering on opening nights at the theatre. I fondly thought of him as the Theatre Orangeville Sentinel, you could always count on him to be there. He will be greatly missed. Kathryn, my sincere condolences on the loss of your husband.

I met Wayne in the fall of 71 ( I think) . LOL . we had both started in Sheridan College art course in Brampton. Neither of us went back to our parents home in the spring and we decided to become room mates.. Little was I to know that this living arrangement would last for quite a few years on and off. Nor was I aware he would become my closest friend for life. We had periods of time we lost contact, and sometimes it was a few years we didnt talk.. but life gets busy. The best part of it was weather it was in person or on the phone our conversation always were as if it was only a few days since we had talked. Good times and bad times , from both ends , we would manage to make a call and say hi. Our lives went in very different directions, but again, when we talked is was as if we were still a couple of young guys sitting in the living room on Main street in Brampton, or on the porch.. or playing chess.. ( I never could beat him more than one or two games before he would beat me consistently . LOL) . It was during this time in our lives that Wayne Met Kathryn, and I do know he loved her from the start. I would like to thank Kathryn for the honour and privilege to be with them both when he passed. I play chess and only a few days before I got the call that he was ill I was telling my chess partner about Wayne and his prowess with chess. Wayne lived life on his own terms always from the day I met him . I always admired that about him. Rest in peace old friend.. be sure to take Sheba and Cisco for a long walk and make sure kitty gets a treat.
