Passing of Wayne Casselman

It is with great sadness that we learned of the recent passing of Wayne Casselman. Wayne was a long time member of the Minto Skating Club community who contributed innumerable hours over many years volunteering to support both Minto and Eastern Ontario Section events. He is perhaps best known in the community for helping with music and announcing at competitions but he could be counted on to help out wherever help was needed.

Wayne will be missed by many people and we extend our deepest condolences to his wife Jan, his family and all the friends he has left behind.

A Celebration of his life will be held at the Barrhaven Legion, 3500 Fallowfield Road Unit #3, Nepean on Sunday, August 12, 2018 between 1 and 4 p.m. We look forward to hearing your favourite memories of Wayne. Donations in Wayne's memory can be made to CHEO's Neonatal Intensive Care Unit in appreciation for the care his son Andrew received, or to the University of Ottawa Heart Institute.
