  • After a nine month fight with AML Leukemia, Wayne beat his disease but ultimately passed away from complications surrounding his treatment. Despite a short two years in this life, it is impossible to measure the joy, happiness, and love that Wayne opened up in the hearts of every person he met. An avid football fan from an early age, he loved attending games and spending Fall weekends watching them on TV. He traveled early and often, met distant relatives at a family reunion in Scotland and spent many weekends flying on planes and driving in cars to visit loved ones. Although we miss his physical presence and mourn at his passing, Wayne lives on in the hearts of those who cared for him, those who prayed for him, and all those who remember him. While the memories may be hard to touch as we wait for time to mend our pain, we will see that Wayne never really left but always has been and always will be with us.

    Wayne is survived by his parents Allison and Zac Gorringe and his baby brother Ezekiel ‘Zeke’ Gorringe. His grandparents Scott & Linda Gorringe and Gale & Carmen Hayden, as well as his Aunt Trisha and Uncle Jordan, Uncle Ben, Uncle Andrew, Uncle Wyatt, and his cousins Zoe and Milo. HIs Great Grandparents Wayne & Linda Gorringe and Franklin & Charlotte Gilbert and Dean Hodges and numerous other family members.

    Small graveside services will be held at Dry Creek Cemetery in Boise, ID on October 9th for immediate family members.

    There will be an open house at Gerber Park in Eagle, ID from 4-7pm if you wish to attend. MASKS ARE REQUIRED and will be available for those who don’t have one. We request you try to stagger times as you come to maintain proper social distancing etiquette.

    Your beautiful baby boy is gone. My heart is fully broken for your loss. I cried for him every time that I saw him in our little digital realm because I felt so much pain for him. I'm so glad that you had him and loved him and Oh... That laugh. I hope that you hear his laugh always in your dreams and feel his warm skin always on your cheeks. Sending my love and condolences from London, England. X A distant digital friend. Natalie x

    Wayne was fortunate to be in your loving family even if for a short time. Although difficult for all of you as he is greatly missed, your family assured him how much he was loved and never alone in the fight. 😘
