Death announcement

BOWLES, Wayne Walter

It is with deepest sorrow that our family announces the sudden passing of our beloved Wayne on Wednesday, April 15th at the North Bay Regional Health Centre.

We were blessed with 17 of the most wonderful joy-filled years with our boy. He was thoughtful, funny, and kind. He made an impression on everyone who was lucky enough to get to know him. He was energetic and he kept us on our toes, so much so that it took an entire village to raise him. His mother Jennifer Poropat (London), aunt and uncle Laura and William Armstrong (Powassan), grandparents Joanne and Frank Poropat (Powassan, formerly London), GREAT aunt Anna Poropat (London), and countless other family, friends, teachers, coaches and church family all had a hand in the shaping of this remarkable young man.

For the past two and a half years Wayne lived in North Bay with the Armstrong family and attended West Ferris Secondary School where he found great joy in joining the soccer and football teams.

Wayne was predeceased by his father Wayne Walter II (Cassandra) and grandfather Wayne Walter I. He also leaves behind grandmother Sandy Stevens, brother Darcy Shannon, bonus siblings by blessing (if not birth) Chloe, Owen, Levi, and Jacob Armstrong and adopted grandparents Everette and Fay Armstrong.

A celebration of life will be held after the COVID-19 restrictions have been lifted.

In lieu of flowers or donations the family asks that mourners purposely make an effort to hug and cherish their loved ones - our time together is precious and fleeting.
