    I am so sorry for you loss. I met Wade boating on Ghost Lake a couple of years ago and saw him again this summer quite a bit, there was never a dull moment with Wade. We always had lots of laughs together. I’m absolutely heartbroken over his accident. You’re all in my heart and prayers.

    I just wanted to express my sadness with Wade’s passing. My wife and I were visiting Drayton Valley from Ontario to assist our 18 year old son getting settled in his new home. On Monday,Oct,3 we drove out to Drayton Valley airport as many family members including myself are pilots. I had a wonderful conversation with Wade and exchanged a lot of great stories
    with him. We spoke for about twenty minutes while he washed his 206 with a great deal of pride. After arriving home to Ontario I discovered the upsetting news. Again I wish to express my condolences with his passing. The Carter family Cavan Ontario.
