Wayne Elliott - 81, Central Onslow, passed away on Monday, June 3, 2024, at Colchester East Hants Health Centre, Truro. Born in Truro, he was a son of the late Andrew and Audrey (Rockwell) Elliott. Wayne is survived by his wife of sixty-one years, Gloria (Archibald); daughter, Julie, Clarence Creek, Ontario; son, David (Michele) and grandchildren, Danika, Tyler and Emilie, Limoges, Ontario; sister, Cheryl (Brian) Simpson, Sussex, New Brunswick; brother, Bartley (Barb), Lower Sackville; in-laws, Doris Archibald (Stu Luddington), Gary (Judy) Archibald, Alan (Linda) Archibald, Valerie Tucker, Tami (Jamie) Canning; many nieces and nephews. Along with his parents, he was predeceased by his parents-in-law, Edgar and Margaret Archibald; brothers-in-law, Bill Archibald and Al Tucker; special nephew, Nathan Archibald. 

Wayne retired from his National Vice President position of UCTE after living many years in Ottawa.

His daughter, Julie said it best: "The world is a little less sweet today. Heaven got a whole lot sweeter. My Dad was a friend to all, the kindest man you’d ever meet and always there for those he loved or those in need. He and Mum had the most amazing 60+ years together; he lived a good and long life, and loved his kids and grandkids unconditionally. We were blessed. No more suffering, sleep the sleep of angels. Until we meet again. I love you more."

A very special man left us to sing with the angels. Wayne was a well-known musician and a most reliable person. He played with a number of bands, organized many jams and musical events, and supported local churches. He loved playing and singing.

Wayne, during his senior year of high school, excelled at track and field and set the provincial record for the one mile race at the Nova Scotia High School Headmasters Championships. This record was held by Wayne for many years. Wayne also enjoyed hockey, baseball and golfing. He and Gloria spent many, many hours at sporting venues watching or helping Julie, David and the grandchildren. Wayne was known for his thoughtfulness, his willingness to help others, his great personality and his love for his family and friends.

A special thank-you is extended to the caregivers for their excellent care, humour and devotion. Thank you to the Doctors and Nurses at the Palliative Care Unit of the CEHHC.

To honour Wayne, family will have a Celebration of Life from 6-9 p.m., Friday, June 28, 2024 at Onslow Belmont Fire Hall, 12355 Highway 2, Lower Onslow. If so desired, donations in memory of Wayne may be made to Diabetes Canada, Good Time Seniors Dance Club or charity of choice.

A true artist does not die, he just stops giving live concerts.
