Hubert Wynne Davies

December 19, 1919 – August 24, 2008

Wynne was a lovely man. He charmed all the girls still at Lady Minto Hospital in the last days of his life with a smile and a wave and, if you might be lucky, he blew you a kiss.

Born in Toronto, he became an architect, first working in the city of his birth, where he fell in love with Liz. The Federal Government sought him out after that, so he and Liz moved to Ottawa, where they enjoyed some of their best early days in a beloved cottage on a lake with their two young sons David and Peter.

Wynne & Liz came to Salt Spring Island in 1986 where they found their second life looking out over the Narrows from their back garden, exploring every inch of our Island together.

In these last few years they shared a winter condominium in Victoria, overlooking Beacon Hill Park and the Strait of Juan de Fuca, returning to their Salt Spring cottage with a flourish when spring came.

Liz is grateful to everyone who helped her look after Wynne in his final days. There will be a private celebration of his life.

Good night sweet prince

And flights of angels sing thee to thy rest!
