Born In: Wolfville, Nova Scotia, Canada

Passed in: Amherst, Nova Scotia, Canada
Passed on: November 29th, 2014

Wayne Murdoch MacLeod passed away suddenly at his Amherst home on November 29th. Born in Wolfville on September 14th 1947, he was a son of Murdock (Bus) and Joyce (Porter) MacLeod. His formative years were spent attending Wolfville High School and Acadia University where he received his B.Sc. and B.Ed. He started his teaching career in Liverpool, N.S. and later at West Kings High School in Auburn, Kings County. He married Sheila Smith of Amherst in 1971. In 1973, Wayne and Sheila moved to Amherst where Wayne joined the firm of A.D. Smith Lumber and later, Atlantic Warehousing Ltd. Wayne and Sheila were blessed with the arrival of their daughter Alexa in 1989. Wayne was an avid gardener and was no slouch when it came to anything in the kitchen. Wayne, Sheila and Alexa enjoyed many good times with friends and family at ‘The Farm’ at Western Head, Queens County. Wayne made people laugh – aloud and often – in ways that aren’t tidily tucked into an obituary. He would surely wish that you summon a favourite memory – now and often – to lighten a day without him. Wayne will be sadly missed by his daughter Alexa, brothers Robbin, (Vicki) Aylesford and Tim (Betty) Wolfville, numerous nieces and nephews, and many dear friends. Besides his parents he was predeceased by his wife Sheila in 2010. There will be no visitation or service by request. A celebration of Wayne’s life will be held at a later date.
