Wayne G. Lodge

July 18, 2019


Wayne G. Lodge, 71, of Fairhaven passed away peacefully surrounded by his family on July 18, 2019. Born in Glendale, California, he was the son of Alfred and Evelyn (Sylvia) Lodge. A long time Fairhaven resident, Wayne was employed at Fairhaven Lumber Company for more than 30 years.

Wayne was a loving brother, father, and grandfather, and his greatest joy was his family. He relished in his trips to Colorado and Western Massachusetts, always eager for an adventure with his children and grandchildren. Wayne was an avid reader and his love for the written word was something he shared with others, especially his grandchildren who cherished book store trips with their grandfather. Wayne was a sailor and loved being on the water; every voyage with him as the captain was an experience to remember. Wayne was also a humble and loyal friend who often put others before himself.

Wayne is survived by his loving caregivers and best friends, Christine Lodge and Bernard Loranger of Fairhaven; a son, Andrew B. Lodge and his wife, Sarah Strassburger, of Aspen, Colorado; a daughter, Meredith Lodge Smith and her husband, Justin, of Granby, Massachusetts. His grandchildren include Ruthie and Cameron Smith and Stella Lodge. In addition, he is also survived by his two sisters, Sharon Stuart and her husband, James, and Pamela Smith, all from Fairhaven; his brother, Dale M. Lodge and his wife, Pauline, of Falmouth. He was the proud uncle of several nieces, and he loved the second family he found at Fairhaven Lumber.

A graveside service will be held at St. Anthony's Cemetery on North St. in Mattapoisett, on Friday, July 26, 2019, at 1:30pm. Family and friends are invited to attend. A Celebration of Life will follow.

The family would like to acknowledge the kindness and compassion shown by the medical staff at both Southcoast Hospital and Brigham and Women's Hospital.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Community Nurse Home Care of Fairhaven
