I was so sorry to hear of Mr Farquharsons passing (he will always be Mr Farquharson to me). When we were kids playing on the street I’m sure we drove him crazy but I always remember him with a smile on his face. My deepest sympathy.

So sorry to hear of Wayne’s passing. No doubt he will be greatly missed. Playing hockey under his coaching was one of the best seasons that I remember as a young teenager. Our deepest sympathies to the entire family.

Dear Candy and Donny and family,
It was with deep sadness, when I heard of Wayne’s passing,
We had some awesome baseball and parties with the gator family.
The old man could play right along the young bucks.
Wayne was fun to be with during or after baseball.
You will be sadly missed Farge.

Dear Candy and Family, It was, with extreme sadness, when I heard about Wayne. Immediately, one thinks of all the memories shared. We, sure, had lots of them. The slo pitch years were the best. Always, a fun time, when we would run into Wayne, at the Chippawa House.

Candy, I am thinking of you, with a sad heart,
Mollie

To the Farquharson Family – I am so sorry to hear of Wayne’s passing,: The last time I saw Wayne he was laughing and said “You have to be one of the Dunn’s but which one, who the hell knows!” That memory will always make me smile. I know you will have many more memories that will give you joy as well. All my love to you xo

Candy & all of Wayne’s family, I am so sorry to learn of Wayne’s passing. He was one of the good ones . I’m pretty sure someone is passing him a cold bottle of blue right now, and he’s dealing the cards. Off to his next adventure. Take Care ❤️
