Wayne Edward Tunney, 74, of Cochrane, AB passed away Tuesday, April 18, 2017 at Dulcina
Hospice, Calgary surrounded by his family. Wayne was born in Ingersoll, Ontario. He joined
the Navy at age 18 and served for eight years. He spent the rest of his career as a police
officer, retiring from Point Edward Police Force after 27 years of service. Wayne enjoyed
playing hockey and baseball during his career years. All who loved him were aware that he
was a big Toronto Maple Leafs and Blue Jays fan. His main treasured times were spending
time with his granddaughter Ayla and watching his grandsons Grant and Gareth play
hockey. Wayne was also a mentor to many and teacher to those with shared experiences.
He was always there to listen and lend support. Wayne is survived by his wife of 50 years,
Joan (Arsenault); daughter Cheryl and her husband Garnet Ovans, and daughter Nola
Fielding; three grandchildren Ayla, Grant and Gareth; his sister Colleen and her husband
Charlie True; and many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his parents, Glen and
Christina, and his brother Larry and sisters Joyce and Elizabeth, as well as his father in law,
Wilfred Arsenault and his Mother in Law Jean Arsenault (Carberry). All who knew Wayne
would appreciate this phrase: "Well, Joanie, the hour is up and it is time to go." We will
all miss you and will always love you Wayne (husband, Dad, Grandfather, brother, friend).
