Halifax Herald
June 2010


October 3, 1950 - June 6, 2010
The Chronicle Herald, Halifax, June 8, 2010
- 59, of Dartmouth, passed away peacefully and heroically in the loving arms of his wife and daughters on the early morning of June 6, 2010, in Dartmouth General Hospital. Born in Coombs Cove, N.L., Wayne moved to Nova Scotia in 1971 and later married his partner in love and life, Marion (Brushett) Bartlett. Together they raised three beautiful daughters and, in turn, perfected the art of spoiling three wonderful grandchildren.

Wayne was an extremely talented carpenter, who took great pride in his projects and was well-known for both his skill and grueling work ethic. During the last two years of his life, Wayne worked as a courier for ICS. He made many new kinships and truly loved and looked forward to seeing his friends along his route. Quick to speak to a stranger, Wayne was forever making new acquaintances and keeping old friendships alive and warm. He was a funny, warm-hearted, giving and forgiving man. Wayne will forever live on in the hearts of everyone who knew him, and his great jokes and fantastic smile will never be far away.

Wayne is survived by his loving wife of 36 years, Marion (Brushett) Bartlett; proud and thankful daughters, Kim (David) Oates and Amanda (Jason) Jenkins; adoring grandchildren, Zachary, Ayden and Tori; sisters, Francis (Newman) Durnford, Conception Bay South, Kathleen (Clyde) Keeping, Grand Bank, Gloria (Frank) Harris, Mount Pearl, Wanda (Peter) Jackman, Winnipeg, Rhoda (Bruce) Rose, Grand Bank; sister-in-law Brenda Bartlett, Grand Bank; mother-in law, Mary Brushett, Grand Bank; and many cherished nephews and nieces. Wayne was predeceased by his incredible and inspirational daughter, Holly Bartlett; brother, Seward Bartlett; mother and father, Mary and Isaac Bartlett. Arrangements have been entrusted to Atlantic Funeral Home, 771 Main St., Dartmouth, where visitation will be held today from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. where funeral service will be on Wednesday, June 9 at 2 p.m. Burial in Dartmouth Memorial Gardens. Reception to follow in the funeral home reception centre. Donations in memory of Wayne can be made to IWK Children's Hospital. On line condolences:
