Obituary of WAYNE FINLAY


May 21, 1940 – February 5, 2024


We are sad to announce the passing of Albert Wayne Finlay on February 5th, 2024.


Wayne was a great husband, Father, and friend.  Wayne will be greatly missed by his loving family:  wife, Cathy, children, Chris (Tish), Craig (Laura) and Maria (John) as well as his grandchildren, JC, Kristian, Noah, Erika and Joey. 


He was predeceased by his parents: Hazel (1985), Harold (2001) and brother Ronald (2013).


Wayne was born in Winnipeg on May 21,1940, a third generation Winnipegger.  He worked for the City of Winnipeg’s Property Assessment Department for 30 years.


For the last 28 years, Wayne enjoyed a wonderful retirement, travelling, spending winters in Arizona, golfing and helping friends and family with various projects.  He was always willing to listen and was someone you felt comfortable asking for assistance.  He was kind, loving and generous, always ready to give a hug.   He relished a challenge and was a great collaborator on any project.


Wayne was successfully treated for Lymphoma in 2013 and was able to enjoy the last 10 years in remission.  We would like to send a heartfelt thank you to the fabulous staff at GD6 at Health Sciences Centre and the Palliative Care Unit at St. Boniface Hospital. 


In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Canada or Cancer Care Manitoba in his name.


A service will be held on Friday, February 16th, 2024 at 10:00 am at Cropo Funeral Chapel, 1442 Main St.
