Obituary of Wayne Sully

Henry Wayne Sully

Henry Wayne Sully of Ardill, SK was born on June 1, 1942, and passed away on October 7, 2023, at the age of 81. On October 6, 1962, Wayne married Diane Clement of Mossbank, SK, and they were blessed with three children: Crystal in 1963, Curtis in 1965, and Kent in 1975. At the tender age of 24, Wayne took on the responsibility of running the family farm after his father's passing. In 2009, he felt immense pride as he was honoured with the esteemed 100th Century Farm award. Wayne’s family held a special place in his heart, and he cherished every moment spent together. Wayne was a natural at building and fixing anything. He constructed his own house and workshop in 1980 and delighted in creating fine woodworking projects, whether as gifts or simply for the joy of it. Gardening and yard work became his latest endeavours, transforming the old shelterbelt around the yard into a park-like setting for all to enjoy. Wayne always had a project in progress and persisted in his work until the very end. He was an active member of the Mossbank Kinsmen and K-40 organizations, he also served as a dedicated councillor for the RM of Lake Johnston No 102 for many years, embodying a true spirit of community service.
