Obituary of Wayne DePass

Please share a memory of Wayne to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Wayne “Dippy” Xavier DePass

Born on December 26, 1955, and raised in Kingston Jamaica, Wayne lived next door to his future

wife Heather. Wayne immigrated to Canada, living with his sister in 1976. Wayne returned to Jamaica to marry his sweetheart in 1978, before returning to Canada to begin their new life. Wayne’s biggest passion was his family; where he was known for his silly sense of humor, mischief, and tickles; as well as being one of its most fierce defenders. Known to be a competitive person, Wayne loved watching motorcar racing, the Maple Leaf’s, and anything Jamaican sport related. He also loved music and would spend many a day singing away to his favorite oldies (much to his family’s chagrin). Wayne is survived by his wife Heather, three children Marcel (Sharon), Justine (Jon), and Daniel (Marianne), and four grandchildren Joshua, Nylah, Finn and Nyomie.

Wayne DePass left this earth on May 30th, 2023, to be received in glory. He passed away peacefully at Peterborough Regional Health Centre while surrounded by family. A public Celebration of Life will be held at Bayfair Baptist Church on June 7th at 11:00 AM, followed by a reception.
