In 2021, Wayne White, a former Shannex team member, unexpectedly passed away. He worked with the organization for over 35 years and was a dear friend and colleague to everyone who had the pleasure of knowing him. Wayne lived our values and loved our residents. He was always incredibly proud of our Great People for the compassion, honesty and professionalism they display every day, especially the many he welcomed with kindness through his recruitment efforts over the years.
On September 29, nearly one year after he passed away, we held a special memorial gathering at our home office, with his immediate family in attendance. At the event, we unveiled “Wayne’s Walk,” a pathway and garden space dedicated in honour of Wayne and his exceptional service and loyalty to Shannex.
Wayne will be greatly missed by all those who knew him, and his legacy will be felt for many years to come.
