Donald 'Wayne' Breeding
WARREN — Donald “Wayne” Breeding, 65, of Warren, died Friday, June 21, 2013, at the Penobscot Bay Medical Center in Rockport after a brief illness.
He was born on Sept. 3, 1947, in Portland, the son of James R. and Marie C. (Pottle) Breeding. He was a longtime resident of Bath. In his younger days, he attended Elmhurst and participated in the Special Olympics. He has resided at Riverwood Ranch in Warren since 1983, the place he called “home.”
Wayne worked at Coastal Workshop in Camden until the time of his death. He loved the Portland Sea Dogs, Portland Pirates, Red Sox, eating out (especially Chinese food) and road trips. He had an infectious laugh, and loved to joke around with those he loved.
Mr. Breeding was predeceased by his father, James, who passed away in 2005; and his maternal grandmother, Christine Pottle, in 1984.
He is survived by his mother, Marie, of Brunswick; and two sisters, Patty DelMastro and her husband, Mark, of Brunswick, and Betty Wade and her husband, Jim, of Bath. He is also survived by his four nieces, two nephews, and several great-nieces and nephews.
