WAYNE BLOOMQUIST

WAYNE GARY BLOOMQUIST It is with heavy hearts and overwhelming sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our dear son, brother, uncle, Wayne Gary Bloomquist on January 1, 2005 at the age of 51 years. Wayne will be deeply cherished in our hearts and forever missed by his mother Lillian, his brother Brian Bloomquist, sister Linda (Steve) Nause, and sister Sharon Bloomquist. Wayne shared a very special relationship with all of his nieces and nephews, Mike Bloomquist (Jennifer) and Myles, Leanne Nause (Ken Larson), Christopher Nause (Sara), Jared Nause (Esti), and Rhiannon Dueck. He was predeceased by his father Kenneth Bloomquist and grandparents, Axel and Nan Bloomquist and Julien and Blanche Lambert. Wayne was born in Winnipeg, schooled in St. James and Fort Garry and had been a longtime employee of Powell Equipment. Wayne was an outdoorsman and eagerly awaited summers so he could get out to the wilderness to camp, fish, and enjoy the wonders of nature. He had a passion for music and had some longtime favourites, but was always eager to give the new musicians a listen. Wayne was a very quiet, peace loving and spiritual man. Though he was able to find serenity in his own solitude, he cherished the times he spent with his circle of close friends and his family. His life ended far too soon and he will be missed. The family would like to express their thanks to all those who have in many ways, big and small, tried to help Wayne through some trying times and health concerns. Cremation has taken place. A memorial service will be held with family and Wayne's friends on Friday, January 7 at 1:00 p.m., at Voyage Funeral Home, 1531 Pembina Hwy. (284-7500). Arrangements entrusted to: VOYAGE FUNERAL HOME CREMATORIUM 1531 Pembina Hwy. 284-7500

  • I walk through the scented air of summer's blooming into the frozen air of winter's dying. And as tears inside me fall The pain of old wounds Calls me to mend them, And I realize once more That things dones before Have no ending. I feel the cold of eve slowly waning. As sun burst rays of warmth overtake me. And the twisted seeds of doubt Which spread my sins about Lie parched and withered. And the present not the past Claims me at the last For it's not over.

  • Jason and I were so shocked and saddened to hear of Wayne's passing. We worked at Powell until it's purchase by Toromont. Wayne was always a big help with the Kid's Christmas party helping me to sort and label the hundreds of toys. He was a pleasure to work with, there when you needed him and always a smile and good conversation. He will be missed.

  • Jason and I worked with Wayne at Powell Equipment. We were so shocked and saddened to hear of his passing. Wayne helped me sort label and package hundreds of gifts for Powell's Children's Christmas party each year. He was very quiet and friendly always there when needed for whatever task he was asked to do. I enjoyed our conversations. He will be missed but not forgotten.

  • Wayne participated in several of the Vincent Massey Reunion functions in spring of 2000. It looked like he was enjoying himself quite a bit - visiting and laughing with old friends from school. I hope he is at peace now...
