It is with deep sorrow and much love that we mourn the sudden passing of Dwayne Shannon Proctor on July 29, 2021. Even though a failing heart took him away from this world, his big loving heart will never be forgotten. We take comfort in the fact that he was surrounded by his family in his final moments. Cherished partner and best friend of Linda Tam. Adored father of Brayden. Beloved son of David and Hilda Proctor. Brother of David Proctor Jr. and his wife Sylvia. Loved Uncle of Nicole and Rachel.
Dwayne was born and raised in Brantford. He attended BCI and St. John’s College. He graduated from Wilfrid Laurier University where he studied Business and Economics. He eventually moved to Toronto where he began a career in the financial industry. Later in life, deciding on a career change, Dwayne attended University of Windsor where he received his Bachelor of Education. Ultimately, he went back to the financial industry where he worked for CIBC in Toronto for the past ten years. Dwayne was a man of many passions including: sports, travelling, music, cooking, and reading. He cared very deeply about nature and the environment. He took pride in trying to excel at every challenge he tackled in life, whether at work or in his personal life.
Spending time with family was very important to Dwayne. He was a very caring person and loved his family more than anything. He understood that the quality of existence far exceeds the quantity of time in which one lives, so he always made time for family. He spent countless hours with Brayden playing tennis, soccer, baseball, hockey, skiing, bike riding, swimming, playing board games, jigsaw puzzles, crosswords, listening to music, and just having fun being silly together. His family is grateful to have had one last adventure with him on a recent canoe trip in Algonquin Park in Northern Ontario. Dwayne will be missed by the many families in the community as he was always so patient and kind with all the children, always including them in activities, and making sure everyone was treated fairly. Dwayne will be remembered by those who know and love him for his personality, dedication, generosity, wisdom and humility. May the legacy and examples of his amazing life inspire us to love just as fiercely and leave this world a better place.
