In memory of Wade Wagar

On October 1, 2011, Wade Wagar, the owner of Macbeth Roofing, passed away of cancer. Wade was a long standing work colleague of the Klondike Contracting team and a great friend to all of us who were blessed for having known him. His larger than life exuberant personality, love of people and incredible appreciation for life will forever remain in our hearts.

We will all miss Wade’s ability to make us laugh with his zany one-liners and incredibly upbeat and positive energy. His appreciation for life was infectious! It did not matter how busy we were, whenever Wade called he always managed to put a smile on our face!

All of us at Macbeth and Klondike truly miss our friend “Air D” – the name Wade often liked to be called in consideration of himself as a modern day superhero, which he truly was. He really loved helping people in need, especially in his chosen profession, always coming to the rescue by bringing an immediate stop to the water coming into his clients’ homes. When Wade or one of his crew members was on the job, you knew you were in good hands & did not have to worry!

Wade was also an amazing father and husband. His love for his wife Cindylee & two sons Matthew & Scott radiated from within his heart and all over his face. Wade was a great man that we all deeply respected for his tireless work ethic, integrity, appreciation of people and love of life! We are all better human beings for having known him. Although his time on earth was cut short, his impact will be forever felt in our hearts!

We all miss you Air D – our real life superhero!

We have set up a memorial fund in Wade’s honour.

It’s such a great feeling to hear from customers who notice when roofing isn’t just “roofing” – it’s “Macbeth Roofing” and I want to take a moment to thank the team for making the difference. Great work guys!
