Obituary of Wayne Auyeung
Our beloved Dr. Wayne Auyeung passed away on Sunday January 23rd in the early afternoon after a long courageous battle with Parkinson’s disease. Wayne leaves behind his loving wife of 52 years Monica and his children Julius (Jenn), Clara (Ross) and David (Gail) and grandchildren Kiera, Erika, Nigel, Peter, Katie, Kaylyn, Elyssa and Emily.
Wayne was a long time resident of Markham after emigrating from Macau in 1959. He attended University of Toronto where he graduated from medical school. He moved to Markham and joined a family practice on Markham Main street in 1969 where he worked in the community through his retirement in 2006. Wayne contributed to the Markham community through his dedication as resident physician for Union Villa Long-Term Care and Participation House.
Wayne had a large community of friends that enjoyed Mahjong parties and dance groups for many years. He had a passion for travel and enjoyed many trips in his youth and later with his family. His laughter and joy of life will be missed by all.
The family would like to express their sincere gratitude to all the staff at Chartwell Woodhaven Long Term Care Residence who made Wayne’s last few years comfortable. They would also like to thank the doctors and nurses at the Markham Stouffville Hospital for their kindness during his last days.
In lieu of flowers, we ask that donations be made to the Markham Stouffville Hospital Foundation in Wayne’s memory.
