ForeverMissed
Wayne was born April 27, 1950 in Trinidad and Tobago. He graduated from the University of the West Indies with a degree in Business Administration. For several years he worked in the banking sector, before starting his own real estate business. In his spare time, Wayne enjoyed traveling, cooking, fishing, and spending time with his grandkids, family and friends. He also had a passion for windsurfing and a special place in his heart for the ocean which he was always excited to share with his grandkids when they visited. He lived and enjoyed life to the fullest. That vigor for life was always a joy for his family and friends. That life will always be remembered and celebrated. He will be dearly missed by his loved ones.

Let the memory of  Wayne be with us forever.

I was shocked and saddened to hear of Wayne's pasaing. I knew him through Real Estate, our paths crossed from time to time and he was always the same ; open, happy and willing to share his knowledge and listings with me, even though I was a new comer and a foreigner trying to establish myself at that time. He was a likeable, nice guy. I am happy to have known him and so sorry he has gone. To his family I send my very deepest condolences. He will be missed by all who knew him. Fly with angels Wayne

Rest in eternal peace ,Wayne. My memories of you are from way back in time when our kids were little people. We did pass briefly during the years and our greetings were always very pleasant. You were always smiling. Sincere condolences from me , Jason and Jordan. ( maybe you will bounce up with Justin wherever y"all are now)

Sincere condolences from the Deane-Ryan family - Danielle, Joe, Zé, DJ and Andre (in Maryland) - and my mom Rose (in Trinidad). It was always a joy to be around Uncle Wayne. I remember once asking semi-jokingly, "Does Uncle Wayne has stock in the airlines?", because he was always at Ramon's or Rachel's when we came to visit. His love for his family and the joy he took in being his grandkids was wonderful to watch. May the wonderful memories of Uncle Wayne bring comfort. You are in our thoughts and prayers!

I've known Wayne for many years...his wife Ingrid and the kids Rachel and Ramon when they were born...still kept up the friendship with both Ingrid and Wayne through Facebook as I've lived in Canada for 26 years now..he in Trinidad and she in USA.

His devotion to family was outstanding..loved seeing him in many pics over the years with proud smiles hugging his grands..totally admired how he had not changed...keeping fit and looking dapper..and oh..that smile..
God bless and protect you and comfort your loved ones..i know you'll be looking over them from above...rest peacefully my friend..

Your presence will truly be missed. Always full of life and a smile on his face. May you rest in eternal peace your memories will live on forever.

I was so shocked to hear of Wayne’s passing. I had not seen him a while so did not know he was sick. I have such fond memories of Wayne from his early twenties and being this extra sharp socialite. He became a friend and when he married Ingrid we got even closer. He remained a faithful father and a dear friend to Ingrid. When ever I saw him he would have fond memories to tell me of them as he seemed to have always just visited them. I will always remember him as a dear friend.
God be with his family during this time of grief.

his Life

My Father Wayne

By Ramon Graham ~

Good Morning to everyone. Thank you for joining us today, as we say goodbye to our friend, family and my father Wayne Graham.

Before I continue I just have to say seriously…2020?!??

In this strange time, this was the last thing I or any of my family expected to be doing… especially via a remote audio recording. 

It was hard to believe that he was gone. For the past few days, we and anyone who spoke to him felt like he was going to get through this and get back to enjoying life.

Even though his life ended suddenly we can all agree it was happy and considered a success by the other lives he touched and the number of people who loved him.  He was the type of person who was part of so many lives with his caring and fun loving spirit. This is even more apparent as we talk to friends and family.
His people - near, far, old and new have been making sure to let us know Wayne was “Good people”. No matter how small an interaction he had with them he will always be remembered the next time they meet. I cannot even count the number of times while visiting him in Trinidad, that no matter where we went he seemed to bounce up someone he knew and was always ready to introduce us with a big smile.  As my daughter, Leila, pointed out during one of those times - “Like, Grandpa knows everybody in Trinidad.” Because of this, I know his memory will never be lost.
These memories will also live on with his family. The one thing that comes to mind and will be an endorsement to the life he lived and that I am sure he will love, is that we all got to see him enjoy life spoiling his grandkids - Aidan and Leila. On the whole he was a supportive ex-husband; a loving father, son, brother, uncle, and friend; but in hindsight it was all about the grandkids. Rachel and I would always jokingly say he did not come to Maryland to visit us.
Aidan and Leila were his pride and joy from the day they were born. Leila more than Aidan…you didn't hear that from me. They both had their own unique relationship with him and always enjoyed their time with him. I know they will always cherish those memories growing up with him and remember those moments as some of the best times of their life. For that I would be always grateful for, especially since his greatest strength was his support of his family.
For me, like any father son relationship we didn’t always see eye-to-eye. He could be miserable, hardened, sarcastic, and stubborn. Wait a minute… I guess in the end I learn from the best. Over time, however, my hope is that we grew closer, and that he was proud of me.
Dad you lived and enjoyed life to the fullest. That vigor for life was always a joy to us and your friends. Although it ended way too soon, that light and joy you brought to this world will live on through your Family, and countless others you’ve touched along the way. That life will always be remembered, celebrated, cherished and loved. Until we meet again. We love you and we will miss you.

My Friend Wayne

by Dennis Drake Jr. 

Good Morning. Just putting a few words and thoughts on paper and saying a personal goodbye to my dear friend Wayne. Had the borders been open I would have been on a plane immediately.However I am here in spirit, not to mourn his passing but to celebrate his life. It’s ironic that one who was so full of life was taken too soon. As I am sure everybody else is, I am still numb and at a loss for words.

Please allow me to share a few thoughts with you.Let me begin by defining ‘friendship’.

The qualities of friendship I came up with are:

• Being there for each other, physically yes, but more importantly spiritually
• Being a confidante, a coach, a mentor as we embark on the journey of life
• Being someone who crosses your mind every so often, even though you have not seen them for such a long time
• Being someone who brings a smile to your face, thinking about the good times that you had, memories that you will treasure forever.
I can go on and on, but let me stop here.

Wayne was a true friend, a life-long friend. This is a friendship that is over 50 years old. We had good times together which will always be treasured memories.- such as riding to Mayaro on a small Honda motorbike, in the dark of night, in the pouring rain, to find a lime‘somewhere down there’. You also introduced us (Norris Achong and myself), to spearfishing. We spent many a Sunday morning down the islands and up the north coast as far Maracas in our little pirogue.

Wayne, what can I say? In you I saw a true gentleman, a family man, a wise man, someone who you know has your back and will do anything in his power to help you. My friend, you have shown me the way in so many respects, more than you will ever know, more than I will ever know.  And I thank you for that. It goes without saying that I am certain you have instilled all these noble qualities in your children, Rachel and Ramon and grandchildren, Aiden and Leila.

I started by listing some characteristics of ‘friendship’. I will end by saying that you were all that and more! I am still smiling, remembering something that you told me years ago – ‘brothers, from different mothers’ .RIP my brother. They don’t make them like you anymore.

Daddy and Mummy would just shake their heads, when we returned home with my shopping bag. Thank you Grandpa for loving ,spoiling me and making all my 10 years extra special.❤️

True Friendship

Dearest Wayne, you have been a friend to our family for as long as I can remember.  You are an example of true friendship.  You came to see my dad after hearing his voice "your dad didn't sound good" while he was in the hospital.  You stayed with us, shopped for us and cooked for us until you knew he was on the road to recovery.  When you left my dad said "dat' is true friendship". Gabrielle and I will miss the casino stories, the donuts that will make us fat and most of all your laughter.  Your presence is a void that can never be filled.  Thank you for being part of our family and all the great memories.  

This is Wayne's Life - Friends

Wayne and myself always laughed about this. I guess it showed how fearless we were. The scene - late 60's, holiday weekend in Trini. Wayne and myself liming one night in Diego, nothing to do. My lil Honda motorbike outside. We talk about some partners gone on a lime to Mayaro, staying in a house about 4 miles from the Mayaro junction - Steve Cross, Brian Lassalle, Wayne Newallo to name a few. A vaps hit us - let's go Mayaro. Time, about midnight, money, as I recall about $5 in coins between us, but the bike full of gas. We agree - Mayaro it is , now, we going and look for Brian and company. Just after midnight. The clothes on our backs, no money except for d coins, and we have no idea where we going, but we going still. We on the way, rain for so, real hard rain, but nowhere to shelter. We must be reach Mayaro junction about 4 am, so we decide to shelter / kind of sleep in the bus stop shelter. Daylight we found the lime. We get some small sardine from d fishermen and we make a one pot something with some rice. Wayne was the cook who fed the multitudes. We borrow some money to head back into town in the afternoon, boss lime it was. Yeah, Wayne, good, mad times.
