I am saddened to hear about the passing of my "old" neighbour and friend. Rev. Wainwright was a lovely, lovely man. His memory will live on in the hearts and minds of those who knew him and he shall be missed.

I will never forget the bird funeral that he presided over for my daughter and his grand daughter, Jennifer. I smile when I remember how he tried to sneak up on a ladder to change the porch light bulb, when he thought that I wasn't watching.

Uncle Dave was a very important person in my childhood. When my mother, Helen, and my father, “Barney”, bought the Hardware in Toronto, Uncle Dave was always at their side. We children loved him so much and I well remember how excited 😊 we were when he met Aunt Eudora and fell in love!
When our mother was suffering from Alzheimer’s, my sister Sue and I brought her east to visit Uncle Dave and Aunt Eudora. They were so kind to her and Uncle Dave was able to help her remember shared memories of their childhood.
They will always be remembered and loved 💗
