Hetherington, Wayne Scott – Age 76, of Three Fathom Harbour, peacefully passed away September 21, 2020 due to complications with pneumonia.
Born in Dartmouth, he was the youngest of four children born to Charles and Ann (Purcell) Hetherington. Wayne grew up in the Imperoyal Village in Woodside where his time was spent playing hockey and basketball with neighborhood kids. From a young age you could tell that Wayne had a kind way about him, by always finding a dog waiting for him at home.
From the Village, the family eventually moved to Three Fathom Harbour, where they found home.
Wayne trained as a heavy duty mechanic where he spent the early part of his career working with the Coast Guard, travelling while working on the engines. The majority of his career was spent at International Trucks in Burnside for 30 years.
In his down time, he could often be found at the Lawrencetown Volunteer Fire Department, coaching the boys’ baseball games or spending time with family and friends. He enjoyed baseball with the old timers, darts, NASCAR races, trips to the United States to visit family and simply enjoying the outdoors!
Wayne left behind his sons, Greg, Dartmouth, and Kyle (Nicki), Mineville; grandsons, Jake, Corey; neices, Debbie (Joe) Burnes, Leslie (Richie) Yerardi; nephews, Chris (Patti) Chaplin and Rob Chaplin; and many other nieces and nephews, cousins, in-laws and friends. He was predeceased by siblings, Ted (Donna), Carole and Lois. He is reunited with the love of his life, Linda, together once again.
The family would like to say a huge thank you to the Northwood staff for becoming his family during the Covid isolation and various staff members at QEII for their care. Donations may be made to the Huntington Society of Canada found at www.huntingtonsociety.ca
