Born June 6th, 1948 in Stockholm Sweden, Olev Wain was just three years of age when he emigrated to Canada with his parents and sister. He left this world on Tuesday, November 21 2023 after a long and courageous battle with cancer; against all odds, Olev remained optimistic, hoping for a miracle until the very end.
Well-read, well-travelled and well-respected for his marketing and research expertise, Olev will be missed by friends, family and business associates around the world.
Olev is survived by his loving wife, Anne Wain (nee Miner), his daughters Emma and Meredith, granddaughters Kay, Eve and Grace, and his sister Kersti. He is predeceased by his mother, Ellett Wain (nee Olesk), his father, Jaan Wain and his grandmother, Emma Olesk (nee Salit).

compared with the pain of never risking love."

In lieu of flowers, it was Olev’s wish that donations be made in his name to the London Regional Cancer Program in recognition of their care and sustained efforts to rid him of the insidious disease.
