WINDHAM -- Wayne L. Syphers, 64, of Elderberry Lane, Windham, passed away on Saturday, July 16, 2011 at a Portland hospital after a brief illness.
He was born in Gorham, the son of Leroy and Edna (Flowers) Syphers. He graduated from Westbrook High School and attended the University of Southern Maine and Southern Maine Community College.
Wayne served as a Police Officer for 20 years for the Westbrook Police Department retiring as Deputy Chief. After his retirement he worked for the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency for ten years. He was currently working as a Realtor, as he had for the past 14 years, and was named the 2011 Realtor of the Year.
He served as Past President of the Greater Portland Board of Realtors, and served on the Board of Directors on the Maine Association of Realtors. He served on the Windham Board of Assessment Review. He also served on numerous civic organizations including Operation Home Front.
Wayne was an avid hunter and fisherman. He and his two boys enjoyed fishing in the state of Alaska. He was a wonderful husband, father, and grandfather. His grandchildren were his whole world; he very rarely missed any of their sporting events.
He is survived by his wife of 43 years Anne (Menario) Syphers of Windham; two sons, Eric W. and his wife Mindy of Windham and Chad E. of Lewiston; a sister Suzanne Howe of Derry, N.H.; and four grandchildren, Lauren, Madison, Matthew, and Elise Syphers.
