GC has created a memorial donation page to support the Distress Centres of Ontario.
You can search through Wayfarer's posts using the forums to see that he was battling quite a bit, but always found a way to be positive for the most part. We always enjoyed his activity in GC, drew strength from his participation in our Biggest Loser weight loss challenges, and met him in 2006 at FragFestOhio.
Here he is in the front of the group of just GC members with arm's crossed. Hmm...maybe that's not the GC picture...not sure which that is!

Yup, he was one of our favorite Canucks!
Post up some memories or link to posts or fun things so we can remember Wayfarer and celebrate the time that we did have with him.
Thanks all, and RIP WAY.
