An avid and accomplished figure skater, Wayne helped to coach and judge many young skaters in Alberta and helped to develop the sport of Precision Skating in the province. Wayne was also active in the Red Deer Theatre as an actor and director. He travelled extensively around the globe and enjoyed every trip he took. Success is To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you lived. This is to have succeeded. A Memorial Service for Wayne LaRoy Feil will be held on Friday July 6 th, 2007 at 11:00 A.M. at Parkland Funeral Home and Crematorium at 6287-67A Street, Red Deer, AB.
