Wynne was born in Lamont, Alberta and spent his formative years in Grimshaw with his Father Wayne, Mother Adelaide and siblings Darlene, Donald and Alrene. As a teenager Wynne moved to Red Deer to begin an illustrious hockey career. As a member of the 1970 – 1971 Red Deer Rustlers, Wynne helped capture the first ever Centennial Cup as a Junior ‘A’ champions. Wynne was widely known as a tenacious forward who would do anything to help his teammates win.

Wynne has been an integral part of the Central Alberta hockey community for decades and his love for the game will live on forever. Along with hickey, golf was Wynne’s other sporting passion. Wynne was a long time member of the Red Deer Golf and Country Club and could be found almost every day, rain or shine around those fairways and greens. In 2012 Wynne married the love of his life Theresa. Wynne and Theresa cherished their time together, everything from Friday dinner dates, Sunday afternoon arena time, trips to Invermere and Radium or their favorite weeks together in Mexico. Whenever they were together it was very clear how special their relationship was. Wynne made a lasting impression on almost everyone he met. He will always be remembered for his quick wit, memorable stories but mostly for his love and dedication to those that he loved.
