It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of Wayne Carroll at the age of 83. Though Wayne lived bravely with Parkinson’s for 20 years, he was taken by a sudden complication of the illness. He passed away peacefully at home on November 6, 2021 surrounded by Josef, his life partner of 44 years and loved ones. Wayne was predeceased by his parents John and Margaret (née Moorhead) and brother Kenneth. He is survived by his brother Earl (Gwen Munday) and his sister in law Francis Hunt. He leaves behind nieces, nephews, cousins and too many close friends to list. We would like to sincerely thank Caroline Tessier of the Centre multiservice de santé et de services sociaux d’Argenteuil, for her attention to detail, her excellent coordination of services at home and we wish to express our appreciation for the excellent at-home care provided by their entire team through the last few months. A special thank you to our close friends, Normand and Gladys, Donna, and the Shea Family. Wayne was a teacher with a B.A. Major in applied social science, with diplomas for special education, general subjects and education of the deaf. Always having an entrepreneurial spirit, Wayne would embark on another extraordinary project at the age of 50 with a lasting legacy. His vision created the Domaine and The Auberge Val Carroll with his life partner Josef Oeler. The two brought together hundreds, if not thousands of people who came in as strangers and left as friends.
Funeral arrangements entrusted to Desforges Funeral Home, 188 rue Principale, Grenville, QC (819) 242-2113. A celebration of Wayne’s life will be held in the summer of 2022.
