My deepest sympathy to Eric, Lisa, and family. My cousin Wayne was a very good person. Even though we lived far apart, we always stayed in touch over the years and we talked regularly. We shared our perspectives on many topics and issues and had a few laughs in the process even if we didn’t solve much. The times we spent together during my trips south to Chicago and his trips north to Canada were always memorable. Wayne consistently took the time and made the effort to ensure we had a good time and, in our younger years, kept an eye on things so we avoided any trouble. That’s just who Wayne was. Along with being a great friend, Wayne was a caring and thoughtful person who loved his family very much. His devotion and dedication to his wife Sahiya throughout his life and during her lengthy battle with Alzheimer’s was one of the many things that defined Wayne’s life and the person he was. I know wherever you are cousin, you are making people smile and watching out for them and one of those people is Sahiya. Have a safe journey and God’s speed. You will be missed. Glen Magel, Vancouver, BC.

My deepest sympathy to Wayne's family -- children and grandchildren. We are related in that Auntie Elsie and my grandfather, John Kreutzer were siblings, which makes Wayne and I second cousins. I remember Wayne and Aunt Elsie coming to Canada years ago and then in the past few years Wayne and I spoke a number of times, the last time being earlier this year. In fact I had been thinking of him just as I got the sad news. From speaking with him, I could tell how much his family meant to him and how much he cared for you all. I could hear it in the warmth of his voice. I am sorry I did not get the chance to talk with him again. May God comfort you in your sorrow and keep you in His care.

We met in third grade at Ravenswood Elementary School when I moved to the neighborhood. Wayne was always friendly, funny and good natured. After school, we would go to his house to play cards, eat a snack or work on his models. At times Kenny, his brother, would stop by to make sure we stayed out of trouble. Wayne was fascinated with cars, motorcycles, yard work and of course Sahiya. His dedication to Sahiya was inspirational and never ending, true love. Our heartfelt condolences are extended to Lisa, Eric, Eduard, Wyatt, Lilian and Anderson. Wayne will be missed by Angie, my wife, me and those who knew him. Michael and Angie Nishi

Our heartfelt condolences to the Roseland family. My memories of Cousin Wayne go back many years due to our family history, our mother’s were sisters. In his childhood years he and his mother would visit family in our hometown of Winnipeg. My father even taught him how to swim. Over the years, we talked weekly and enjoyed conversations about family, cars, and home improvement projects. His devotion to his wife Sahiya was an inspiration to all. He never wavered in her care or his love for her. He said to us many times: “she took such good care of me and our family, now it’s my turn”. We enjoyed many dinners together, exchanging recipes including telling Susie what ingredients to buy. Wayne was a very warm and joyful person who was loved by many. RIP my dear cousin, I will always miss you. Brian and Susie Magel

I will always fondly remember when we were kids in our early teens and Wayne visited Winnipeg and Ponemah Beach. Wayne, Larry Zelmer and I, had so much fun together in the city and at the beach. In more recent years we always contacted each other to chat every two to three weeks. Wayne was always positive and funny. And his deep love for his wife, children and grandkids, was very apparent. Now he will be with his wife again, his mother and family waiting for us all to join him. Heaven is forever. Barry Bernhard, Manitoba,Canada
