Obituary of Wayne Michael Jackson

With a heavy heart, we are greatly sorry to announce that Wayne Michael Jackson, (AKA Wally,)
passed away peacefully in the comfort of his own home, surrounded by family, on May 23, 2024.
Wayne Jackson was born in Toronto to parents, Leo and Patricia Jackson on June 25, 1949.
He went to Malvern HIghschool, and graduated in the class of 1969-70. Despite his physical
disabilities due to polio he excelled at sports and was admired for his strength.
After owning Doyle’s cigar store for 20 years, he started his journey working for the family
business, Signet Tools. His charismatic, and kind nature brought repeat customers that admired
and trusted Wayne.


Wayne is survived by his beautiful wife of 50 years, Patricia, (AKA Boachie,) whose love and
dedication allowed him to to stay in the comfort of his own home surrounded by love and laughter.


The strongest most compassionate Dad to Kerry & Linda Jackson, Ryan & Wendy Jackson, and
Kristi Jackson. His Legacy will live on through his adoring grandchildren, Chelsey, Elena, Kayla, Lexie,
Matthew, and Brady. Brother to Lee and Anne Marie Jackson, Joe and Christine Jackson (predeceased, Joe
Jackson,) and Carol. He will be fondly remembered by many Aunts, Uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews and friends.
Dad,

Our Hero! You touched the lives of everyone you met.


You fought tirelessly until the end, using all your might to stay with family, and friends until the
last possible second.
Your courage and inner strength is second to none. You demonstrated that your whole life. You
are the toughest person we have ever known!!! At the same time the kindest, most
compassionate person we have ever known, always putting everyone else’s needs ahead of
your own. You are truly our example of pure love and our most respected role model. You will
always be our hero.


Finally we will forever strive to make you proud as you get some needed rest, and although we
will miss you terribly, you will NEVER be forgotten. You will forever live in our hearts, minds, and
souls.


Thank you to all the people that played a monumental part in keeping Wayne safe and happy at
home, caring for him in a gentle and kind manner, including but not limited to, Elma and
Natasha. Without you, we couldn't have kept Wayne happy at home.


An intimate family prayer service will be held for immediate family on Wednesday May 29, 2024,
at St. Michaels Church.


A grand Celebration of Life will be held for all family and friends who wish to honour the
amazing man that Wayne Michael Jackson was. Details to come.


WE LOVE YOU DAD. We will say farewell for now, until we meet again.


Say hi to Grandma and Grampa for us. “Go Leafs Go.”
