Obituary Overview

Lovingly Remembered

1938 – 2020

On Thursday, June 18, 2020 Wayne Hladik, loving husband, father, grandfather, and great grandfather passed away at the age of 81.

Wayne was born on November 5, 1938 in Wetaskiwin Alberta to Dan and Elsie Hladik. On Oct 15, 1960, Wayne married his wife of nearly 60 years, Lynn Karen Treleaven. Wayne and Lynn lived in Edmonton and Calgary for the past 60 years, during which time they raised 4 children.

Wayne had many passions. The first and foremost of these was people. He often stated he got along with everyone and this was evident in the many friends he made throughout his life. From extended family, the sports he participated in, the cards he played, and the winters spent in Arizona, he will be missed by a lot of people for the love and contact he had with so many.

Wayne was predeceased by his parents and his daughter in law Indra Hladik. Wayne is survived by his wife Lynn, his children Wendy, Tim (Jessie), Andy, and Susan (Al), and his sister Jackie (Chuck). Wayne is also survived by 9 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren.

Wayne will be interred at Eden Brook Cemetery in a private ceremony. His family plans on holding a celebration of life later in the summer.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society or other charitable causes.

Wayne was my first boss at Gulf Canada after I graduated from the U of Alberta. That was in the summer of 1979. He had an excellent way of nurturing wet-behind-the-ears prima donna university graduates. After 41 years in the industry with the same company (Gulf>Petro-Canada>Suncor) I can safely say that he was probably my best boss. After we went skiing a few times together I can also say that he was not the best skier I've been with but, we always had a lot of fun. Happy trails to a very fine fellow who always managed to put a smile on everyone's face.

Wayne was a fun-loving person. We still get a kick out of the time he was driving to our place to play cards. Previously he had told Lynn not to give him driving directions. As they neared our place, Lynn could see where he should be turning but she just kept quiet. After a time, he realized that he was lost. So he turned to his wife and asked her to tell him how to get there. We all laughed about the episode when he told us about it. He was a skilled Bridge player and we enjoyed playing with him and Lynn. I also played slo-pitch with him. He was a very good batter and fielder. He was always great company, we will miss him.
