We Remember


April 13, 1941 — February 10, 2017

On February 10th, 2017 at Central Okanagan Hospice House Mayne departed this world just as he had lived his life, quietly, peacefully, with dignified grace and surrounded with love. Mayne was born in Summerland on April 13, 1941. His childhood was filled with carefree summer days at Powell Beach, working in his dad’s orchard, playing baseball, fishing and camping with his dad and friends. During his youth, Mayne developed a passion for sports (both actively and later in life as an arm chair coach) music, and gardening. These interests stayed with him throughout his life. In 1960 Mayne bought a one-way ticket to Australia and soon after arrival found employment with Ronson inc. Manufacturing. During his time in Australia Mayne established many friendships, learned to understand cricket, and travelled much of the world with his work. He returned to Canada in 1968 and started his 33-year career with Western Star Trucks. He and Carole were married in 1969 and settled into raising a family. Myles was born in 1972 and Erin joined the clan in 1975. Over the years, Mayne was very involved in his children’s lives. He coached minor hockey, soccer, baseball and softball and, in his 40’s took up skiing.  Family week ends at Big White were winter fun filled times. Mayne also spent many hours teaching Myles and Erin to love the great outdoors and to respect and appreciate nature.  Upon retirement in 2002 Mayne spent endless hours ” puttering” in his yard. Bonding with the soil produced amazingly beautiful flower gardens.  His carefully tended apple trees produced bountiful and delicious crops that neighbours and friends enjoyed. In the fall Mayne could be found ” wood hunting” to gather fuel for his fireplace in front of which he spent long hours watching sports and snoozing. For 15 winters Mayne and Carole travelled to the warm climes of Mexico. They loved visiting and exploring the wee pueblos along the Pacific coast around Puerto Vallarta and Mayne particularly loved the surf and photographing the beautiful Mexican sunsets. When not travelling to Mexico Mayne and Carole made frequent trips to Toronto visiting their kids and doting on their beloved grandchildren. Mayne is survived by his wife Carole, son Myles (Emma) grandchildren Henry and Orla, and daughter Erin all of Toronto. Sister Pat of West Kelowna, Brother in law Gary (Nickie) Hackman of Parksville and Nieces Whitney, Heidi, Blair, Lara, Lexi and nephew Joel as well as many May and McCutcheon cousins and great cousins.   Mayne’s family would like to thank Dr. Tara Sebulsky, the palliative nurses in the Rutland area and the staff at Hospice House for their kindnesses, caring and compassion given through this difficult time. There is no doubt that they were ” angels among us.” A memorial celebration of Mayne’s life will be held on Monday March 13 at 1:00 at Springfield Funeral Home, 2020 Springfield Road, Kelowna. In lieu of flowers donations in memory of Mayne can be made to Central Okanagan Hospice House 2035 Ethel St., Kelowna V1Y 2Z6.   Vaya con Dios.

    A great loss but wonderful memory!

  • Val & Dave King says:

    How blessed I was to have renewed a friendship at the Grad Reunion in ’59 with Carole & Mayne. Dave got to meet Mayne that year and they hit it off right away. We have such good memories of shared jokes via email, chatting about current events, & putting the world to rights! Missing Mayne is an understatement but for sure he will be in our memories always. Our love to Carole, Myles and Erin. God Bless xoxo Photo taken at the Stone House in Summerland.

    Dear Carole, Pat & families,
    Very sorry to hear of Mayne’s passing. My parents were such good friends with your parents and all of us “kids” enjoyed many fun times at Powell Beach. Don and I are in Arizona for a month and will not be able to attend Mayne’s service. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you. R.I.P. Mayne.

    Carole and family:
    Many memories of growing up in Summerland came flooding back as I read the warm tribute to Mayne. Our thoughts are with you all at this difficult time of loss. One can only trust that the many good times shared over the years can help ease the pain of losing such a loved one.

  • Suzy Tennant says:

    Carole, during the years I worked with you I met Mayne many times and was always impressed by his friendly nature and cheerful personality. He was always interested in talking to others. My sympathy to you and your family.
