Survived by his wife Martha and 2 children. “Wayne was a founding member and the managing editor of the Psychiatric Journal of the University of Ottawa (1976-83). He had a practical approach to therapy and an innate ability to connect with his patients through empathy and kindness. With a sense of justice, he would advocate for his patients. After a stroke in 2019 he made the difficult but necessary decision to close his practice, fretting over his patients from the emergency room.”
