April 7, 1925 – March 8, 2014
at the age of 88 years
With sadness, we announce the sudden passing of Wayne McLeod on March 8, 2014 at his home on Mabel Lake. Wayne was born in Altario, Alberta and moved with his family to Vernon in 1937. In the 1940’s he moved to Enderby and in 1969 out to Mabel Lake where he became a well-known, active and respected member of the community.
Wayne was a veteran of WWII. He had a number of jobs before going into the family business with his father in the early 50’s. Enderby residents will know and remember him for his work as Mayor of the City, his many years of service to the Enderby Seniors Centre, the Enderby Credit Union as a Board Member, Notary Public and Insurance Agent owner until his retirement in 1987. His passions were photography, his Apple computers and travel to Cuba.
He is lovingly remembered by his niece and nephews and extended families. His familiar presence will be missed by his friends, neighbours and visitors to Mabel Lake and Kingfisher. At Wayne’s request, no funeral or memorial
service will be held. Interment will be in the family plot in the Enderby Cemetery. Memorial donations in Wayne’s name may be made to your favorite charity.
Gail & Joe:
I wish to thank you for your very kind words but more importanly for everything you did for us. We can never repay you for your help but rest assured that we will be forever thankful and hold you in our highest regards. Keep well.
With great appreciation.
One of my very best friends for many years. Kindest wishes and condolences to the family.
My sincere condolences to the McLeod families and friends on the recent passing of Wayne. The Stowards family appreciated his honest business character throughout the years in the insurance, notary and Credit Union businesses. Also I might add a great Mayor for the City of Enderby, B.C. Enjoyed the last visit that I had with Wayne at the Kingfisher Interpretive Center during the release of the new salmon fry.

I was very sorry to hear about Waynes passing to-day. I first met Wayne in 1949 when I was in the same boarding house in Vernon. He was a great guy and fun to be with. Every Sept. wEen golfing at Mabel Lake. I visited him and we had many laughs about our younger days in Vernon. I will miss you this Sept. Wayne but the memories will be with me and I will certain be thinking about you.
I am deeply sorry to hear about my dear Uncles death! He lived a good life, did a lot of great things for Enderby and Masbel Lake. I wish I could of got to know him better. My late father Hartley Towers had high regards for Wayne and talked fondly about him! God bless you Wayne, I hope your passing was without too much pain. We know you are at peace and you leave behind a legacy that will be remembered by all and you will hold a special memory in our hearts love you! Murray Towers
