Our beloved father, grandfather, brother, uncle, and friend, Wayne Hamm passed away with his family by his side on November 25, 2017. Wayne will be lovingly remembered by his son, Jared (Brianna) Hamm; daughter, Jodi (Kirby) Millar; grandchildren: Finnley, Berkley, Kinsley, and Tagen; sister, Cheryl (Bert) Desjardins; sister-in-law, Sandra (Brian) Kennedy; as well as numerous other relatives and close friends. He was recently predeceased by his loving wife, Judy Hamm, his mother Nalda Wheeler, and his stepfather, Bruce Wheeler. Many knew Wayne as a 25 year veteran of the Edmonton Police Service, as a man with honest whit, and a sense of humor that would often command a room. He was an avid motorcyclist, completing multiple cross-country motorcycle trips including a memorial ride to spread the ashes of the love of his life. For those closest to Wayne he will be remembered foremost as a loving husband, father, friend and as the world's greatest papa. We extend a special thank you to Wayne's closest friends Bill Horne and Barry Kaye for all they have done for him and his family during these difficult times. A special thank you to Dr. John Clarke and staff for those special gestures almost unheard of in our busy, modern times.
