Obituary Overview

Wayne George Frizzell


Frizzell, Wayne George, age 79, of Lake Loon, passed away on December 11th, 2019.

Born in Port Wallace, he was a son of the late Hugh and Mary (Clarke) Frizzell. Wayne joined the Royal Canadian Navy in 1956 as a Medical Attendant. He served in many ships which exist now only in the history books; such as HMC Ships BONAVENTURE, MARGAREE, SAGUENAY, ASSINIBOINE, HURON and SACKVILLE. Shore postings often found him working in the emergency department at HMCS STADACONA (CFB Halifax). Throughout his 33 plus years of service, Wayne saved countless lives. When he retired from the Navy, he was offered an opportunity to get his license to practice medicine, however, he declined the offer. Wayne joined the Corps of Commissionaires to keep himself busy. While a Commissionaire, he worked at the Pullen Building at CFB Halifax. In retirement, Wayne also dedicated time to The Royal Canadian Legion (Centennial, Dieppe, and Somme Branches) where he was involved with for over 30 years. Wayne was also a member at the Army, Navy and Air Force Club on Main St, Dartmouth. Most times, Wayne loved to put on his thinking cap and “putter” in the yard. It was his belief that it kept him out of mischief (Mom’s hair). Wayne’s most favourite thing to do was spend time with the love of his life, Arlene, and go on as many adventures together as possible. Wayne will be immensely missed by his family and friends.

Wayne was predeceased by his wife, Arlene Francis (Seager) Frizzell. He is survived by his daughter Jennifer Gregory, Ottawa, ON; sons, Scott (Teena) Frizzell, Dartmouth, and Galen (Jennifer) Frizzell, Brighton, ON, and Kent Gregory, Halifax; grandchildren Timothy, Richard, Lacey, Alison, Laurel and Celia Mae. He is also survived by his brother, Carney (Cerise) Frizzell, Dartmouth,and several nieces and nephews.

He was predeceased by his brothers Hugh “Sinclair” Frizzell and Kenneth Frizzell.
