It is with great sadness that we share the passing of George Wain. George passed away suddenly in the early hours of September 1st 2023 at the age of 76. George was pre-deceased by his loving wife of 20 years Kim Wain, his parents Myrtle and Orval Wain, and his brother in- laws Terry Peirce and Dennis Martin. He leaves behind his beloved sister Sylvia, his Niece Georgia (Chris), his Great Nieces Emma and Avery(Connor) and his many friends who had became like family.
George was a great hockey player who was scouted by Chicago at a young age, his path went in a different direction and he pursued a career in an area he was already passionate about,harness racing. He drove at tracks in Ontario and the US where he was well known as Jiggers. He could drive any horse he sat behind. He had his own stable of horses he trained and carried the love of horses throughout his entire life. He shared that passion with his sister Sylvia and passed his wisdom and knowledge onto his niece and great nieces. His family will keep his memory and legacy alive through harness racing with his colours passing to his youngest great niece who followed in his footsteps with her own trainers license. He will be deeply missed
