Wayne Daigle

PORTLAND/DAIGLE – Wayne Daigle, 55, passed away peacefully on October 21, 2020 at a Portland health care facility. He was born in Fort Kent on September 10, 1965 the son of Claude and Noella (Gaudreau) Daigle. Wayne enjoyed watching horse racing, NASCAR and football, especially the Washington Redskins to which he was a loyal fan. He was fortunate to see much of the country through his work in construction and driving truck. He loved to talk about all the places he had been. One of his favorite places was the Fish River Falls in Fort Kent, Maine.

Wayne leaves behind his mother Noella of Daigle, Maine; three sisters: Linda Hicks and her husband Bruno of Dalton, Georgia, Cindy Wilson of Vernon, Connecticut and Lori Daigle and her partner Jeffrey White of Vassalboro, Maine; four brothers: Claude and his partner Rebecca Alderman of Louisville, Kentucky, Mark of Lake Alfred, Florida, Michael of Bangor, Maine and Larry also from Lake Alfred, Florida. Wayne also leaves behind many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, and cousins. Wayne is predeceased by his father, Claude.
