Wayne Robert Hoskin
1958 – 2015
Head of St. Margaret’s Bay, passed away unexpectedly on the evening of August 17, 2015 doing something he loved — riding his motorcycle. Wayne is survived by his wife Virginia (Burke); his children, Dr. William Hoskin (Deidra) and David Hoskin; his brother Terry (Yoline), and sister Brenda-Lou (Alan). He is predeceased by his parents Marjorie May and William Harold Hoskin. Wayne graduated from Sir John A Macdonald High School and quickly began pursuing his passion for mechanics and engine repair. This eventually led to the formation of Schooner Cove Marine, a respected and successful marine service and retail company in the Bay. Wayne was a devoted husband, father and friend. Often described as a man larger than life, he enjoyed fishing, boating, riding his motorcycle, and Costa Rica vacations. More importantly he enjoyed sharing time with family and countless friends. He could frequently be found on his boat, in the company of Jimmy Buffett and his trusty sidekick Gizmo, working on one of his many projects, visiting with friends or just having a cigar and soaking up some rays. He will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved him.
