It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Fredrick Thomas Wayte on Friday February 14, 2020 at the Glenboro Health Centre at the age of 78 years.

Fred was born on May 23rd, 1941 in Glenboro, Mb. He was predeceased by his loving wife Marjorie (Kenehan), his father Tom Wayte and step-father Norman Wayte.
He is lovingly remembered by his mother Lena (nee Calverly), son Ron (Shirley) Wayte of Landon AB, daughters Terry (Harold) Wayte-Sears of Arnprior ON and Sandy (ex-husband Francis) Peddle of Crossfield AB as well as three grandchildren, Richard Wayte, Shayna (Trevor) Filkohazy, Reid Peddle and two great-grandchildren, Callie and Stevie Filkohazy.

At the age of 16, Fred left school and joined the army in the RCEME (electrical/mechanical engineers) core as a soldier apprentice. After two years he graduated from the apprenticeship as a Group 1 craftsman vehicle mechanic. In 1968, he left the military and worked for civilian helicopters. Later on, he became a partner with Helitrade in Ontario. In 1996 Fred expanded the company into Alberta.
During his married life he and Marj moved 22 times, moving back to Glenboro in 2009 to be closer to his aging mother. His sense of adventure led them on many interesting journeys and allowed him to make many friends.

A Celebration of Fred’s life will be held on Thursday February 20, 2020 2:00 pm in the Willmor Chapel, Glenboro, MB with Sharon Hamilton officiating. Internment will take place at a later date in Piccadilly Cemetery, Hinchinbrook Township, Godfrey, ON.

Friends that so desire, memorial donations may be made in Fred's memory to the STARS Air Ambulance Program, Head Office,1441 Aviation Park NE, Box 570, Calgary AB, T2E 8M7 or to the Glenboro Palliative Care, Box 310, Glenboro MB R0K 0X0 or to a charity of your choice.

To Mrs. Lena Wayte and Fred and Marj's family,
My mother and I wish to send you our sincere sympathy at the loss of your son, your father and grandfather. We are very saddened by Fred's passing. Fred was a kind, generous person and good humoured, a wonderful driver and understanding companion for Mum on her bimonthly appointments with the ophthalmologist in Winnipeg and Brandon - over a period of about 10 years. Mum so enjoyed his presence. On numerous occasions over a period of years, Fred also very kindly shuttled me back and forth to the Carberry buses, so I could come to visit with Mum. On those drives, we chatted and the chats always included his love of his family and of his work with helicopters. Fred's kindness and generosity touched our lives and we will always remember him.
Sincerely, Susan LeBlanc and Daisy Steer

Fred was the consumate professional who dedicated his whole life to civil aviation after serving his country as a member of the RCEME Corps. In doing so, Fred's dedication and contagious laughter left their mark on all whom Fred touched in our industry.

Fred will be missed but our memories of him will live on and endure. Rest in peace my friend. Arte y Marte.

Sympathies and condolences to the Wayte family.
